Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge- Churchill Wild

250 km south of Churchill by plane

57° 07’ 22.4” N / 91° 39’ 52.0” W

Situated next to pristine Arctic waters on Hudson Bay with Canada’s Boreal Forest as its backyard sits Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge, one of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World. 

Nanuk is open August through November and shares the coastline with Canadian icons such as polar bears, black bears, wolves, and moose.

Custom built, low-impact ATVs are used for tours up and down the coastline that traverse the many rivers and creeks that flow towards Hudson Bay.

Though white for much of the year, summer brings lush greenery and colourful berries to the landscape, while September tells the story of impending winter as the trees change to hues of yellow and orange. 

In addition to world-class wildlife viewing, guests can enjoy fly-fishing and wellness adventures. Or, for the hardiest of travelers, a visit in March can result in sightings of mama polar bears with their newborn cubs. 

From the safety of the fence surrounding the Lodge, view the northern lights or get up-close-and-personal with the polar bears and other wildlife that meander past, as curious about you as you are about them. The eight guestrooms with en-suite bathrooms are housed in two guest wings and connected to the main dining room/lounge area. Private, cozy sitting areas outside each room overlook the Bay and are perfect for downtime. After a long day trekking the tundra, kick back in our lounge and enjoy an informative presentation by our guides or simply relax and enjoy conversations with new friends.
