What Guests Are Saying...

“This was our second experience with Orbridge and we were not disappointed. They are the best travel group we've encountered. Our guide was an excellent, knowledgeable leader. We could not have had better!”
–Frances & Michael S., Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
“The books we received pre-departure are wonderful. Now that we've been there, I'm going to read them again. The dog sledding was beyond excellent. The Lazy Bear is beyond expectations. For me, it is the gold standard in accommodations. Our expedition leader was a delightful person with great experience.”
–Ellen H., Morgantown, WV
“The hotel was excellent. The restaurant was surprisingly good, and the staff was great at all junctures. The Tundra Inn was perfectly acceptable, comfortable, and appropriate to the circumstance. It was nice to the familiar faces of the staff on our other activities and meals. Everything that I ordered/ate met or exceeded expectations. The Tundra Inn's food and service was the best of the places we visited, but each place had its charm. The coffee, soup, sandwiches and cookies on the excursion days were perfectly appropriate and enjoyable.”
–Allan H., Dallas, TX
“Excellent trip...fun and educational. We would never have done this on our own. The all-inclusive trip was worth every penny.

We were so impressed with the food!

We've all seen dog sled pictures. Going on a dog sled and being around the dogs is a whole different experience.

Our guide made the trip! He was knowledgeable, fun and kind to all. He knew the "lay of the land" — so helpful when you get to a remote destination.”
–Linda & Tom N., Spokane, WA
“Third trip with Orbridge—all three widely different (Tanzania, Northern Italy, Polar Bears). All three were thought out, planned and executed extremely well. Looking forward to my next trip with Orbridge, wherever that might be!”
–Dave & Pam P., Nashville, TN
“The pre-departure experience was great, especially the time and patience Orbridge Guest Services afforded me as I tried to ascertain what photography gear I could/should bring.

I think the program is excellent, particularly in how it accommodates the wide range of mobility and levels of interest in the group. There were times I wish it were a little more demanding, but I think it's well geared to the target market.

The hotel was excellent. The restaurant was surprisingly good, and the staff was great at all junctures.

Our local guide was a rockstar--there's really no substitute for the breadth and depth of field experience he has on the taiga/tundra and in Churchill among both the full-time and seasonal residents, staff, scientists/naturalists and visitors.

Our expedition leader was everything you could hope for in a group leader: well-informed about the topic at hand, well-informed about many other things including other trips/expeditions, positive, patient, frank but diplomatic, and most of all, seemed genuinely passionate and excited about the bears and their natural (and sometimes unnatural) environment(s).”
