Holiday Overview

A superb Canada Wildlife Viewing Holiday

 

The remoteness of Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge provides you with exclusive access to one of the most pristine wilderness areas in the world. It is also strategically located in very close proximity to significant polar bear denning activity. On your daily excursions you will explore the Cape Tatnam Wildlife Management Area  surrounding the Lodge. This is where the boreal forest ends and the Subarctic begins. This unique convergence of eco-systems, nourished by the Hudson Bay coastal waters, is home to an impressive variety of flora and fauna. It is here that you can find wolves, black bears and polar bears, co-existing as they have for thousands of years.
