More about our Polar Bear Experiences...

The Lodges

There are four luxury eco-lodges, three of which are located deep in the heart of polar bear country on the Hudson Bay coast in northern Manitoba, Canada. The polar bear lodges are located directly in the path of the polar bears as they walk up and down the coastline during the summer and fall waiting for the bay to freeze. Two of the lodges, Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge and Seal River Heritage Lodge, are proud members of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World collection.

The Wildlife

The Birds, Bears and Belugas tour combines the thrill of snorkelling with beluga whales in July and August with the adventure ‘on the ground’ polar bear walking safaris. The Great Ice Bear Adventure is undoubtedly the most diverse and holistic wildlife viewing package offered anywhere in the world for polar bears seekers. The Arctic Discovery is your immersion into one of the planet’s last untameable wilderness areas: the Canadian Arctic.
