The Hudson’s Bay Company Heads North

The Hudson’s Bay Company has partnered with Frontiers North Adventures, a Canadian adventure travel company, to celebrate the 2012 polar bear season. Outfitting the Tundra Buggy Lodge with the iconic Hudson’s Bay Company ‘Point Blankets’ and other items in the HBC collection, adventuring-seeking guests will be immersed in all the beauty of Canada’s North.

“At the core of both Frontiers North Adventures and the Hudson’s Bay Company, we are companies of adventurers,” said John Gunter, General Manager, Frontiers North Adventures.  “This partnership fits perfectly with our mission to ensure that our guests experience the wildlife, history and culture of Canada’s north.”

Building on Frontiers North’s goal to create an authentic travel experience, guests who stay at the Tundra Buggy Lodge will learn about the Hudson’s Bay Company on tour and then enjoy curling up at night under the iconic point blankets that played a part in the early fur trading done by Hudson’s Bay Company explorers in this area.

“As the oldest commercial company in North America, we have become intricately and permanently woven into the Canadian culture, evolving into one of Canada’s most beloved brands”, said Alison Coville, Senior Vice President, Private Design and Development. “We are excited to partner with Frontiers North and to help deliver an authentic Canadian experience to their guests.  There’s nothing more Canadian than the Hudson’s Bay Company stripes!”

Frontiers North’s Tundra Buggy Lodge provides an opportunity for total immersion in polar bear country. Located on the shores of Hudson Bay in Manitoba Conservation’s Churchill Wildlife Management Area, home to the largest aggregation of polar bears in the Churchill area and the world, this unique Lodge offers guests a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience.
