The Polar Bear Express departs Cochrane for an incredible 186-mile journey to the Arctic Tidewater at Moosonee. Travel along the "old highways" of the fur trade, historic rivers such as the Abitibi and the Moose. Trips on the Polar Bear Express take guests to a sparsely populated land of forests, tranquil lakes and muskeg. Take a freighter canoe across the Moose River to Moose Factory, a relic of history founded more than 300 years ago by the Hudson's Bay Company. During your train trip, enjoy the on-board services including dinners, snacks and the entertainment/activity car.
