A historic journey into polar bear country.
A proud member of the prestigious National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World collection since 2016, Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge is located 250 km southeast of Churchill, Manitoba on the Hudson Bay coast near the historic York Factory. (Visit Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge on Google Maps.)
Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge overlooks the Arctic Ocean, has the Boreal Forest as its backyard, and is located along the Mississippi Migratory Flyway. This translates to a diversity of coastal and woodland wildlife. Polar bears, black bears, wolves and moose call this coastline home and the wildlife encounters and interactions we have experienced over the years have been incredible. Nanuk can also be a birder’s paradise, particularly in early fall.
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 known polar bear denning areas which we explore on our Polar Bear Den Emergence Quest.
