Situated 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle, the lodge offers fully-guided opportunities for hiking, kayaking and exploring the Arctic tundra in all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). The Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge is located in Cunningham Inlet, on Somerset Island, in Nunavut, Canada’s largest and newest territory, which formally came into being in 1999. Arctic Watch offers a range of unique adventure travel experiences.
During this distinct Canadian adventure, you experience Arctic safaris, raft the Cunningham River, sea kayak with hundreds of beluga whales, hike the tundra, spot polar bears roaming the Northwest Passage, investigate the mysterious Thule ruins crafted from giant whale bones, fish for Arctic char and more. Led by experienced kayak guides, paddle among icebergs, on the watch for ring and bearded seals and beluga whales.
