Have you ever been to an Arctic safari?

Kayak with Beluga whales, watch polar bears on an Atv tour or hike to the Triple waterfalls and explore the canyon!

Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge at Cunningham Inlet on Somerset Island, Nunavut. Canada’s twelfth biggest island, Somerset Island has no permanent residents on its 24786 square kilometers (9570 miles sq).

Located 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle and 50 miles from the nearest town, Arctic Watch is a permanent wilderness resort that offers hotel-like accommodations in a remote Arctic setting. Our guests experience the beauty and wonder of this fabulous place, while enjoying the comforts of home and delicious meals.

Accessed from Yellowknife by private charter aircraft and a 1,500 km (900 mile) flight. While the lodge is located just one kilometre from the beluga whales’ favourite summer hangout, a visit to Arctic Watch is much more than just about whales. It is an all-encompassing Arctic safari. Visitors see muskox, polar bears, arctic foxes, birds and archeological sites. They travel across land and water by foot, sea kayak, raft, mountain bike and ATV (all-terrain vehicle). Guests can climb mountains, fish lakes, and hike through canyons, across tundra and around waterfalls. The vistas are immense and, since the lodge only accepts guests in the summer, it’s daylight 24 hours a day.
