Photo enthusiasts, this trip is for you! We are working with the only tour operator on the planet that specializes in ground level walking tours through the remote polar bear regions of Arctic Canada.
Wildly rugged and remote, this adventure provides the discerning photographer the ability to dedicate long days in the field getting up close and personal with Arctic wildlife. Ground level photo opportunities are offered for Arctic wildlife, including polar bears, in pristine wilderness setting in the heart of polar bear country. Polar bears, caribou, red and Arctic fox are in a backdrop of stunning sea and landscapes. The lodge’s shoreline location is ideal for photographing bears on ice and snow. After a long day out in the field, you will return to the lodge for a delicious meal and a relaxing evening spent by the fire and observing the northern lights!
