Polar Bears & Beluga Whales

This trip combines the thrill of seeing and hearing beluga whales with summer polar bear viewing on the tundra. Thousands of beluga whales congregate in the Hudson Bay each summer, and you’ll see and hear hundreds of them both from the air on the flight to and from the lodge and on boat tours in the Seal River Estuary. You’ll even have the opportunity to swim with them! Also interested in the belugas are the polar bears, here to wile away the summer and provide us with fantastic viewing opportunities in the process. You’ll have the chance to see a whole host of other wildlife on this trip as well—including caribou, fox (red and Arctic), wolves, moose, and birds galore (such species as ptarmigan, Smith’s Longspur, Ross’ and Bonaparte gulls, and jaegers, etc).
