Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge guests, professional photographers, photo leaders and staff post a large number of photos to Instagram, both on their personal accounts and on the Churchill Wild Instagram page.

The album below includes photos taken at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge. You can click on any of the photos and they will open a new window to the photographer or author page. We love to share photos from our polar bear lodges, especially from guests. If you’ve taken some great photos at Nanuk and have posted them to Instagram, using the tag #nanukpolarbearlodge could help you gain more exposure through this album.

We’ll swap out the photo at the top of this post on a regular basis and link it to a different guest, photographer, photo leader, guide or staffer, in an effort to create additional exposure for all our valued guests, stakeholders and evangelists. Of course, we’re also hoping you’ll follow @churchillwildsafaris on Instagram too!

A huge thanks to all of our guests, professional photographers, photo leaders and staff for sharing your incredible photos with us! Enjoy!

Say 'cheese'! 📷 It's World Photography Day! 📷

We've got the most amazing collection of polar bear photos thanks to all the talented photographers who've visited us over the years. This one, taken by @fast_dennis, is one of our many faves.

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!

Thinking about the weekend... or seals 😇 The polar bears are now back on the ice and all @churchillwildsafaris guests and staff have left Seal River Heritage Lodge, Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge and Dymond Lake Ecolodge. A big thank you to all the guests, guides and staff for another fabulous season! 📷: @robertpostmaphotography

Our friend, and fabulous photographer, @annfulcherphotography shared this photo the other day and reminded us how much we love it! She captured this polar bear at sunset at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge back in 2016. Perfection. 😍 .

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.” 💕

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 ...

Hey there, sleeping beauty! Our friend @jennsmithnelson, a talented travel writer and author, snapped this pic at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge a couple of weeks ago.
.
"We could see this lovely female dozing her days away from Nanuk Lodge. The whole time we were there, she hardly moved. However, the guides suspected she’s pregnant. Did you know that female polar bears can delay their pregnancies? It’s called embryonic diapause, where the store fertilized embryos in their body until their external environment (and personal health) are suitable for newborns."

Did you know that there are 19 populations of polar bears worldwide and 13 of those populations are wholly or partially located in Canada? Did you also know that if you join one of our dual lodge safaris you'll see bears from two different populations during your trip? 📷: @robertpostmaphotography

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.

Throwback to 2011, one of my favorite pictures from my flying career so far. I was flying passengers to the Hudson’s Bay coast in C-GSAD, Britten-Norman Islander. I dropped off a photographer and her crew at Nanuk lodge and we were greeted by this beautiful polar bear. Although I got to see many of them roaming around this lodge/runway, this particular bear’s calm nature allowed us to capture this unforgettable moment.

Moose on the moove! 😆

Bull moose shed their antlers each winter, but you can still differentiate them from a cow moose even after that happens. How? If you look closely, you can see the spot out of which the antler grows, called a pedicle!

It's a strange year for us and for all our fellow tourism operators. Each spring, we anticipate the re-opening of our lodges, we look forward to meeting guests from around the world, and when it's all over, cherish the memories that come out of a season. This year, all that has changed due to the pandemic. Our lodges are closed and we feel a little lost.

The importance of tourism to communities, economies and conservation efforts seems more apparent than ever right now. With World Tourism Day taking place on September 27, we decided to put something special together for you.

We've put together a collection of 20 guest photos that depict the magic of travel and tourism as experienced on our safaris. From now until World Tourism Day, we'll share one photo each day. Enjoy!

20. Photo by Christie Allen, @hudsonroadphotography, taken in August 2017 at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge

Did you know that polar bear cubs weigh just 16-20 ounces (about a 1/2 kg) when they're born? So teeny!! They pack on the pounds pretty quickly since their mama's milk is very rich, made up of 30 to 40% fat.
.
These little ones were photographed at our Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge last year by @bellacoola2014. They're only about four months old. 😍

📣 Watch for scenes shot at our Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge and Seal River Heritage Lodge on Wild_Life: The Big Freeze, airing tonight on Nat Geo WILD TV in the U.S. 9pm EST!
.
Repost from @bertiegregory // A polar bear sits watching us on west coast of the Hudson Bay, Canada. This male bear was in no rush. He was waiting near to the water’s edge in anticipation for the big freeze: an annual event when the ocean turns into a rock-solid ice pathway. This ice allows him to hunt his primary prey, the ringed seal. To see this guy in action and to learn more about polar bears’ incredible lives, check out my new online series, ‘Wild_Life: The Big Freeze’ at natgeo.com/wildlife or on National Geographic Youtube.
