Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge

Nanuk's star attraction are the polar bears. You are likely to encounter more here than anywhere else on earth. This is due to the fact that Nanuk Lodge is located in very close proximity to significant polar bear denning activity.

Manitoba Conservation officials recently discovered a large number of denning females in the area that may be equal or greater in number than those found in Wapusk National Park.

The lodge itself has just eight rooms all with ensuite facilities. There is a large dining area with communal tables and panoramic views across the bay where the wildlife is frequently sighted during meal times. After a walking safari or taking a low impact ATV buggy ride return to the cosy living room with is roaring fire, for storytelling and wildlife presentations.


Around 250 KM southeast of Churchill and close to historic York Factory Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge is situated on the edge of the Hudson Bay.


Dining room and lounge with panoramic windows for optimum viewing.
