Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge in Northern Manitoba offers a pristine, wilderness area for viewing and photographing polar bear mothers with cubs while in a comfortable, just-remodeled lodge setting.
Leaving from the tiny outpost village of Gillam, we have a chance to spot beluga whales from the air as we fly over the mouth of the Nelson and Hayes Rivers.
This is a great wilderness area for a variety of wildlife to view and photograph.
Our base, Nanuk Lodge, is located on the Hudson Bay shoreline. The area is fenced off for safety but still allows for great observation and photography. Plus, daily excursions from the lodge onto the taiga and tundra will allow us to walk among the bears and other wildlife. Our experienced guides are well-versed in bear safety and use great care in not disturbing the bears.
This is a great polar bear tour for those wanting to see and photograph mothers with cubs as they congregate along the bay shore, waiting for the fall freeze-up. Other willdife can be seen such as caribou, foxes, moose, wolves and ptarmigan. It's also a great time to see the fall bird migration in full swing!
