Trip Itinerary:

This is a sample itinerary that can depart any time from the beginning of October to mid-November.

Day 1

Spend the night in a 4-star boutique hotel attached to the Winnipeg airport.

Day 2

Fly commercially or privately from Winnipeg or Churchill, Manitoba to Arviat, Nunavut. Travel by snowmobile, UTV, or truck across the tundra to the cozy and remote Nanuvik Polar Bear Cabin. Settle in and enjoy views of the tundra and possibly even polar bears and of course the change to see Northern Lights at night.

Days 3-4

Safely view and photograph polar bears from behind an unobtrusive electric fence that surrounds the cabin – they are known to wander right up to the fence! Get the chance to see polar bear mothers and cubs, as well as other Arctic wildlife including the Arctic fox.

For days when there are no bears near the cabin, enjoy hikes on the tundra or snowmobile rides in search of polar bears. These activities are guided by Arctic Kingdom Expedition Leaders and Inuit guides. Our expedition staff are experienced in polar bear safety and know the land well. They always make sure to keep all travellers a safe distance from wildlife, and strictly adhere to the Wildlife Policy of Nunavut – keeping our guests and the animals safe.

At this time of year there is also a great chance to view the Northern Lights after a full day of discovery. If the conditions are right, witness a spectacular light show at night.

Enjoy gourmet meals prepared by an Executive Chef, with menus customized to your tastes.

Daily itineraries can also be customized to you, depending on conditions and wildlife.
