The polar bear is one of Earth’s most magnificent predators. These great bears are superbly camouflaged amongst the ice and snow, even though they are undeniably top of the food chain. Each season they migrate through Canada’s “polar bear alley” in search of the first sea ice forming on Hudson Bay. With Journeysmiths, you can join them on their journey.
A private charter flight over the arctic tundra takes you to Arctic Kingdom’s strategically placed Polar Bear Cabins. Remote, rustic, and accessible only by air, the cabins offer a privileged window into one of the world’s most awesome predators. The cabins are protected by an unobtrusive electric fence, so you can see the polar bear clearly but remain perfectly safe.
The four simple cabins each sleep two guests in twin beds, and however freezing the temperatures outside, they are always gloriously warm. The bathrooms are en suite, power comes from an on site generator, and the food is wonderfully warming, exactly what you want in this epic arctic wilderness.
When you stay at Polar Bear Cabins, you will spend your days observing and photographing the polar bear. Aerial photography is sometimes possible as you fly in and out, but you will get much closer to the great white bear when you take short treks across the ice with local Inuit guides.
On these walks, you might well also see Arctic fox, Arctic hare, and wolverine, and the willow ptarmigan and snowy owl are equally beautiful. The Arctic truly is a wildlife lover’s delight, and so far from human habitation, you can guarantee that each encounter will be natural and also unique to you.
