5It's easy enough to get to Churchill by train, but in June and July the bears are dispersed on land, trying to survive until the sea ice forms up in the fall so that they can hunt again. Sometimes one or two is seen hanging around town, but it's a pretty sad affair: they're extra hungry and forlorn because with global warming their habitat--the sea ice--is increasingly short-lived, and life is becoming difficult.
In June/July, think Svalbard, and think of large stacks of cash.

7You're not going to see polar bears anywhere driveable, so you might as well hang it up now. If you want to pay big bucks to fly somewhere and see them during your time slot, you're on your own.
If you want to see orcas (and don't want to go to Norway), Google orcas Johnstone Strait and orcas San Juan Island.
