• Be prepared for up-close-and-personal experiences with polar bears.
• Bring your iPod. There is little privacy on the Buggies; all that separates you from the 19 other guests in your sleeping Buggy is a touch-fastener curtain.
• Be patient. Sometimes you’ll go for hours without seeing a polar bear.
• Be prepared for one of the greatest photographic adventures of your life. Just remember to take a break from picture taking to enjoy the close encounters with the magnificent polar bears.
