Join us on our most unique Arctic Safari!

September - 9 days, 8 nights

Experience the magic of autumn in the Arctic at our most exclusive location. This trip has something to excite every traveler. Four nights of your trip will be spent at our remote, rustic, and luxurious Seal River Lodge, where you will have the opportunity to walk with polar bears, and see other wildlife like Arctic hare, and Arctic fox. Polar bears in fall colours? CHECK!

Venture further into the heart of nature with two nights at our Tundra Camp. Amidst the breathtaking fall foliage, engage in blueberry picking and jam making, fishing, invigorating hikes along the Esker, and perhaps even take a polar plunge for the brave-hearted. At night, you can cozy up by the fire or in your Arctic Oven tent to stargaze and soak in the northern lights. Don’t worry, the polar bears are not around the camp!

Adding an extra layer of excitement to your adventure, National Geographic photographer, Jad Davenport, will join you on this expedition, offering valuable insights into photography and storytelling. This safari is not just a trip; it’s a rare and special opportunity that only a select few get to experience each year. Get ready for a journey that is as rejuvenating as it is exhilarating, where the Arctic’s autumn magic unfolds in every step you take.

Seal River Heritage Lodge

Perched on the rugged coast of Hudson Bay lies Seal River Heritage Lodge, one of the early members in the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World collection.

This lodge is in a prime location for observing polar bears as they wander the coast during summer and fall waiting for the Bay to freeze. Its location near the Seal River Estuary also makes it ideal for viewing beluga whales in July and August.

Our fenced-in compound, viewing platforms and tower lend themselves to unique photography opportunities for wildlife that approach to check out the sights, sounds and smells of the Lodge.

After a day of trekking the tundra, relax in our cozy lounge, watching for wildlife through expansive picture windows, sharing photos or talking with new friends.

Barren Lands Tundra Camp

Nestled on the shores of Schmok Lake, just a few kilometres from the Manitoba-Nunavut border, sits our Tundra Camp. This camp is set up for just a few weeks each September to allow guests an immersion into the Canadian Barren Lands.

A double, electrified and alarmed fence encloses the compound that contains seven cozy Arctic Oven expedition tents. Each is equipped with a heater and can comfortably accommodate up to two guests. Within the compound is a heated bathhouse containing lockers, a shower, sink and toilet. Meals will be served in a larger expedition tent, or on the beach if the weather cooperates!

Enjoy an evening aperitif around the fire, perhaps watching the northern lights dance across the sky, before settling into your tent. You’ll sleep soundly, breathing in pure tundra air, ensconced in nature’s stillness.
