Seeing Exotic Wildlife 

With over 20 years of providing Arctic adventures we have learned a lot about the best places to see some truly special things. But getting the chance to see some of the animals that only live in the Arctic is unforgettable. 

Each of us can still remember seeing our first polar bear or whale. It was a moment of joy and excitement and provide that experience to our guests is our passion. 

Explore the different wildlife you can see on all of our Arctic Safaris and find out more about each trip.  

 

 

Polar Bears

Polar Bear Mother & Newborn Cubs 

This trip takes you to the polar bear denning habitat of Wapusk National Park. This is the largest denning area for mothers giving birth. This is your chance to get to see and photograph newborn polar bear cubs in the first couple weeks of leaving their maternity den.  

 

Spring Polar Bears & Icebergs of Baffin Safari 

Travel to the northwest Baffin Island and explore the frozen world where polar bears walk among icebergs and rest atop snow mounds. Here you can see solo polar bears or mothers and their cubs. 

 

Narwhal & Polar Bear, A Floe Edge Safari 

Even though this trip focuses on seeing narwhal, it is also a great chance to see polar bear exploring the hillside while you travel to the floe edge. 

 

Polar Bears & Glaciers of Baffin Island 

Enjoy the warmer weather of summer as you explore Baffin Island’s coastline by boat and visit known polar bear locations. Find them resting along rocky beaches or wondering across hillsides. If you’re lucky you might catch a polar bear swimming! 

 

 

Polar Bear Migration Fly-In 

Take a chartered plane to our polar bear cabins located next to a beach on the edge of the tundra. Perfectly situated along the route of the Hudson Bay’s polar bear migration. Watch as polar bears walk nearby and take remarkable up-close photos. 

 

Arctic Whales 

Narwhal & Polar Bear, A Floe Edge Safari 

This trip can seem like it has it all since it has polar bears and narwhals but if it couldn’t get any better, this trip also is known for beluga whales appearing too. We invite you to stand right on the floe edge while narwhal and beluga whales migrate right past. Witness the narwhal’s famous tusk as they burst out of the water. 

 

Polar Bears & Glaciers of Baffin Island 

This trip takes advantage of the open Arctic water to explore coves looking for polar bears but also travelling to well known bowhead whale sites. The bowhead is a colossal whale that lives year-round in the Arctic and can live to 200 years old.  

 

Arctic Foxes 

Polar Bear Mother & Newborn Cubs Safari 

Arctic foxes can travel incredible distances over the year and can often be found roaming the tundra. They are known to follow in the tracks of predators like polar bears in the hopes of getting their leftovers so that means you might even get a photo of them together. 

 

 

Polar Bear Migration Fly-In Safari 

Our secluded cabins seem to attract Arctic fox when they’re in the area. They are curious creatures and have been spotted wondering through the camp. Not to worry, they are as friendly as a kitten are don’t mind being photographed.
