Polar Bear Watching at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge | Hudson Bay Odyssey

Holiday Duration: 6 Nights

"We would just like to say a massive thank you"

We would just like to say a massive thank you to you and Frontier as we had a wonderful time in Canada and saw some amazing sites/experiences. All the travel arrangements were perfect and ran really smoothly. We have used Frontier twice to Canada and on both occasions you have produced amazing packages that have matched our requirements and expectations. We have again recommended you to family and friends and when we next look to book travel to North America you will be our first point of call.

Hudson Bay Odyssey

Hudson Bay Odyssey

Your exclusive wildlife adventure to see polar bears – and the largest concentration of mothers and cubs – will take place on the coast of Hudson Bay, within the Cape Tatnam Wildlife Management Area.

Churchill Wild has been the premier eco-outfitter in northern Manitoba for over 40 years, and Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge offers a unique adventure with a high concentration of mother bears and cubs in particular. These are pure, wild polar bears living the way they have lived since time began.

Northern Manitoba is one of the most pristine wilderness areas left in the world. Only a two-hour plane journey north of Winnipeg lies the coastline of Hudson Bay – an area so remote that it hasn’t changed in thousands of years. During your breathtaking flight east from Churchill to the lodge you will fly over the Northern Taiga Forest and follow the mighty Nelson River to the plains and tidal flats of Hudson Bay. Stay alert for a chance to see beluga whales as you fly over the mouth of the Nelson & Hayes Rivers.

The trips run between August and the end of September – ask us for exact dates.

This itinerary can be added to a tailor-made holiday to suit you. If you want to add extra days at the start or end please talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.

Lodge details

Lodge details

Situated next to pristine Arctic waters on Hudson Bay with Canada’s Boreal Forest as its backyard sits the remote wilderness ecolodge Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge.

The diverse ecosystem surrounding Nanuk is home to wildlife such as polar bears, black bears, wolves, and moose. Keep your eyes open for these and other Canadian icons during your daily treks out from the lodge!

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.

Relax in the cozy sitting area outside your guestroom or curl up in front of the fire in the main lounge overlooking the Bay. After a long day of walking with wildlife, you’ll enjoy the casual atmosphere as you relax and enjoy conversations with fellow adventurers.

There are eight guestrooms (queen, king, twin and family rooms), each with their own ensuite washroom, there is a cozy common area with fireplace, fenced compound surrounding the lodge, outdoor viewing tower and decks, library, gift shop, full-service meals, 24h electricity via solar power, natural gas, and wood heat, radio/telephone and satellite wi-fi.

"Thank you for the adventure of a lifetime!"

Thank you for the adventure of a lifetime!!! Two years ago we used this company for a holiday to BC and it was fantastic. This year we went to Alaska and the Yukon and Heidi organised the most wonderful trip, that went as smoothly as is possible. From the Arctic Circle to Kodiak Island everything was PERFECT (so rare in this day and age!!!) As for wildlife...wow! She arranged for us to travel by several different means of transport and to stay in a wide range of accommodation all of which gave us an idea of life in this vast area of North America. We are left with wonderful memories and thousands of beautiful photos.
