Head for northern Canada if you want to see Polar Bears. This untouched wilderness where forests meet the Arctic around Churchill, Hudson Bay is the only place where there is an opportunity to glimpse polar bears in their natural environment. The Nanuk Polar Bear lodge is located in the heart of polar bear denning territory and visitors are taken out on guided walks to places where the bears are likely to be seen.
In addition to the polar bears, the area is also home to a vast range of wildlife including black bears, wolves and herds of moose. Among the treks organised from the lodge are opportunities to explore the pristine landscapes of Cape Tatnam Wildlife Management Area which offers once in a lifetime photo opportunities. It is a silent world, interrupted only by the sound of the wind and waves and visitors have to keep together, walking as quietly as possible.
Other sites operated by Nanuk provide the opportunity to stay in a Tundra Camp on the Barren Lands which is the ancient migratory ground of the caribou, as well as the Seal River Heritage Lodge. Camping out and being in this pristine environment far from towns and cities provides an additional magical opportunity to appreciate the environment.
It is not unknown for visitors to glimpse the spell binding enchantment of the Northern Lights, the Aurora Borealis flickering and dancing in spectacular colours across the night sky.
