Peek-a-boo bears!

How amazing is this photo?

Sometimes you're just in the right place at the perfect moment and you see something wonderful like these beauties.

Fall is a great time for polar bear viewing - the bears are so much easier to spot when they're not camouflaged against the snow!

In 2016 this amazing scene unfolded. A sow and her two cubs as well as several large males were hanging around. When and if they came close the sow and cubs would move as unit and charge the males.

On The Run, 🐺
Watching and trying to understand the interactions between the wolves of a pack, will never be boring. One moment, they‘re playing, the next they are chasing each other and just seconds later they are challenging their alphas.

Coming Home

After a long day on the snowmobiles and komatiks (sleds), crossing this small stretch of boreal forest is a sure sign, that the warm and cozy Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge is only minutes away...

A low, eye to eye view, of a large mature, male polar bear weighing between 1100-1300 pounds. Intimidating to say the least! Almost 3x the weight of a fully grown male lion puts a polar bears size into perspective. It would be the angle a seal would see if it popped its head up from its breathing hole while only to be confronted by the largest terrestrial carnivore on earth. Nanuk Polar bear Lodge is perfectly placed along the Hudson Bay coastline, east of York Factory and the Hayes River mouth, to experience safe encounters on foot with these amazing animals. #polarbear #polarbears #polarbearinternational #polarbearsofinstagram #polarbearcub #bears #bearsofinstagram #carnivore #hudsonbay #nanukpolarbearlodge #arctic #manitoba #uphere #canada #nikon #d3s #70200mm #nikonphotography #canadiangeographic #natgeo #natgeophotography #outdoorphotography #outdoorphotomag #travel #instatravel #wanderlust #yourshotphotographer #photooftheday churchillwildsafaris breitermatthias upheremag cangeomag ...

Family

Wolves are social animals. They have a clearly defined structure and hierarchy in their packs. By showing their affection, they are constantly affirming their family ties.

They may be the top apex predator but this gentle giant is also a truly beautiful creature. This bear in particular was very relaxed and really didn’t mind a whole swarm of polar paparazzi snapping oh a zillion of so pics of him. After taking this shot, he leisurely strolled off into the sunset. #truestory . churchillwildsafaris #nanukpolarbearlodge .

Success!! Our incredibly hardworking team at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge have found a mom and cubs and yesterday guests had this encounter. @jaddavenport captured an amazing video and describes the scene: “Mom is resting while her two cubs climb all over her. We’re headed back out again way before dawn tomorrow to keep tracking as she tries to reach the safety of the sea ice. We’re hoping to witness the magic when these 12-week-old cubs first touch the frozen ocean.” 💕

An Arctic fox's thick winter coat helps them hide from predators and provides extra warmth. Arctic camouflage at its finest!

Friends

When we stayed at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge in winter 2019, there was a pack of wolves roaming the area. They have probably never seen any humans before and were very curious. Occasionally, they came right to the lodge. And sometimes, we got up early to watch them getting up in the morning. We will never forget the almost two weeks we spent with „our“ wolves!

Moose, what a magnificent animal. And huge! Those antlers are as heavy as they look. I've never seen animal with such presence and was awe struck when he appeared in the mist. I was totally transfixed when Butch, one of our guides who has lived in the area all his life, called the moose closer. By creating seemly identical moose sounds and scraping a shed antler against the bushes to mimic an approaching female moose, over 20 minutes he expertly drew the moose closer towards us so that we would get a better view. It was incredible to watch the Moose's response. Moose seduction, a very specialist and awesome skill! #Moose #Churchill #Manitoba #Canada #nanukpolarbearlodge ...

Tracks

In March, polar bear moms and their cubs are heading from their denning sites to the open sea ice of Hudson Bay. Our goal was to cross their tracks and watch them without disturbing them. However, we only discovered their frozen tracks. Which, after all, is a good sign. It means, that they safely made it to the sea ice.

Our first igloo ever, lit by a single candle. We consider ourselves extremely lucky, that the aurora borealis made a beautiful appearance that night, too.

Team Spirit

Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge is more than 100 miles away from any other human settlement. Spending almost two weeks with a small group of fellow „cold lovers“, and experiencing adventures like this sunset out on the sea ice of Hudson Bay really builds a very special team spirit.

Goofing off when mom wants you to follow her. A COY (cub-of-the-year) pretends he’s been hit by a cannon ball at churchillwildsafaris Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge, a natgeotravel Unique Lodge on the Hudson Bay. Why is a 17th-century canon sitting on the tundra? The sea level here is actually dropping about a meter every century thanks to isostatic rebound (the ice sheet that once covered the land is gone so the land is ‘springing’ back up). These canons are from a shipwreck found in the willows far from the coast. 📷🇨🇦

This young bear seemed very relaxed to have us nearby. She knew we were there but pretty much ignored us. A lovely end to the day.

Arctic Christmas Tree

Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge is just south of the tree line. There are a few scattered pines and even some stretches of boreal forest. In the middle of the Arctic winter, these trees are the perfect setting for any christmas tale...

A yawning skinny male polar bear. Ursine communication , speaking a language of dominance, submission, aggression or solicitation. Bears react to people in the same way they would react to another bear. A bear uses head and mouth movements as well as body orientation to communicate. This bear was yawning while approaching another two bears. This turned into a gape as he got closer he was releasing stress and trying to impress. It was already November so he was skinny from being on land for 4 months living off his fat reserves. #polarbear #polarbears #polarbearsinternational #polarbearsofinstagram #polarbearlove #bears #bearstagram #bearsofinstagram #arctic #arcticwildlife #nanuk #nanukpolarbearlodge #hudsonbay #manitoba #canada🇨🇦 #canada #nikon #d3 #200400mm #nikonphotography #nikonphoto #nikonphotographer #nikonwildlife #travel #instatravel #travelphotography #wanderlust #yourshotphotographer #photooftheday churchillwildsafaris upheremag canadageography polarbearalley polarbearsinternational natgeoyourshot ...

Looking Back

We had a pack of probably seven wolves coming close to Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge multiple times. They didn‘t seem to be afraid at all. However, this beauty was particularly attracted by our presence and watch us as fascinated as we watched her. What an incredible experience!

Mooswa

The Mooswa was an old steamship that ran on ground in the shallow waters of the Hudson Bay coast probably almost a century ago. In summer, it‘s surrounded by swamps and tidal flats and therefore not easily accessible. But during winter, the snow and ice allow for an easy - but cold - access.

Each year we eagerly await our first polar bear sighting and being able to share that moment with all of you. This year, that milestone may not come as expected. Due to travel restrictions surrounding COVID-19, we don’t anticipate being able to host guests this summer.

We plan to open our lodges in October for our fall season and look forward to a regular summer season next year. We’re also taking bookings for 2022 for those of you who like to plan farther in advance!
We will relive highlights of our past summer seasons here until we can start sharing fresh content later this year!
