ARCTIC WATCH WILDERNESS LODGE, SOMERSET ISLAND

VISIT THE BELUGA WHALES, POLAR BEARS, ARCTIC FOXES, MUSK OX, AND VARIOUS BIRDS.

What greater adventure can there be than to explore the remote white wilderness, 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle and 50 miles from the nearest town?

The most realistic way of reaching the lodge is by light aircraft – and a 900 mile flight from Yellowknife. Arctic Watch is way inside the Arctic Circle; a place where few visitors venture, set on the bleak-but-beautiful vastness of Somerset Island. Not many people reach here on their luxury, tailor-made holidays to the Arctic, but you will not be alone.

Arctic Watch Lodge stands less than a mile from the favourite summer destination of huge numbers of beluga whales. You’ll discover – on a polar safari with one of the most travelled North Pole explorers in the world – that the surrounding wilderness is also roamed by hunting polar bears and herds of musk ox, Arctic foxes and a wide variety of wheeling birds calling noisily into the clear blue air.
