The November Polar Bear Migration Fly-In Safari a huge success!
"It's a polar bear!"
Simultaneously exclaimed by Michelle and Leanne, two Arctic Kingdom guests at the start of our inaugural Polar Bear Migration Fly-In Safari at the beginning of November. The pair had just touched down after an 180km flight over the seemingly endless tundra, only to be greeted by a large male polar bear a mere 20 feet away from the cabin grounds.
Building on a decade of up close and personal wildlife safaris throughout the Arctic regions, Arctic Kingdom furthers our commitment to the arctic experience. We have partnered with the Inuit people of Arviat to deliver the best ground level polar bear viewing experience imaginable. One that will allow guests to truly feel connected with the polar bears, and the arctic, all while upholding the most stringent safety measures.
Over the next four days, Michelle, Leanne and other guests of Arctic Kingdom at the polar bear camp witnessed polar bears - large males, females and mother and cubs, from the safety of the cabin grounds, and under the professional guidance of Inuit guides from Arviat, Nunavut who are trained in close polar bear encounters.
"To be on the ground, only meters from a polar bear and, to look directly into its eyes is nothing short of amazing...and incredibly fun!" summarized Michelle of her trip to photograph the polar bears.
This is from Terry of Seattle who just sent us a write up of her experience:
"Looking at the photographs put me in the mood to type this travel log up. The truth is, this is something I'm still extremely emotional about. I truly left my heart in Nunavut."

We couldn't agree more with Michelle and Terry and are already excited to be booking for 2012.
