The polar bear habitat was super interesting, and very interactive. We spoke to the staff and it was definitely worth it as we were told where they would be feeding the bears and went there to see. It was lots of fun for the family.

Polar Bear Habitat explains the main facts in simple and nice way, understandable for all ages. We were lucky to see 2 bears, since it was a hot day. The heritage village is also quaint and interesting.

Hi there if you are driving look at staying in Timmins as well options Cochrane. It is an hour drive from Timmins to Cochrane. We stay at Cedar Meadows in Cochrane. Hope this helps.
