Trek in the heart of polar bear countryManitoba, Canada

Exclusive access to one of the most pristine wilderness areas in the world you say? We're in. The remoteness of Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge means you can witness the beauty and brutality of Mother Nature up close on a Hudson Bay Odyssey tour, for there's no other human presence within 160 kilometres.

As the name suggests, this lodge is set in the very heart of polar bear country. Your daily excursions around the Cape Tatnam Wildlife Management Area that surrounds the lodge will not only bring you (safely) face to face with polar bears, but also with wolves and black bears. It's the unique convergence of eco-systems – where boreal forest meets the Subarctic beside the coastal waters of the Hudson Bay – in Manitoba that allows so much local flora and fauna to flourish.

  • Large picture windows overlooking the coast and passing wildlife
  • A cosy fireplace lounge
  • ATVs and touring trailers with emphasis on safety and environmental low impact
  • Ensuite bathrooms

From US$9125.
