Your Arctic Safari takes place in Canada’s last remaining wilderness — from the great tundra plains known as The Barren Lands, through “The Land of Little Sticks” and finally down to the rugged Hudson Bay coastline, home of the mighty polar bears.
Our most ambitious adventure to date, the Arctic Safari includes a two-day stay in our Tundra Camp on the Barren Lands, exploring the ancient migratory grounds of the Qaminurjuaq caribou herd, as well as four days of ground-level trekking in search of polar bears at Seal River Heritage Lodge. All set on a kaleidoscopic background of spectacular fall colors!
If that’s not enough, try finding some energy to stay up for the finest light show on earth. Our lodges are located in one of the best aurora borealis viewing zones in the Arctic! Listening to the spine tingling howls of a hungry wolf pack while being mesmerized by the dancing aurora borealis can be a life-changing experience.
Of course, it can’t hurt that you have just finished a delicious meal in the rustic Arctic luxury of Seal River Heritage Lodge and you’re lounging outside by a campfire sipping a glass of wine!
