Narwhal and Polar Bear Safari

This exhilarating Narwhal and Polar bear tour will take you to the northern reaches of Nunavut when the sea ice is melting and marine mammals along with other Arctic wildlife can be found travelling north along the floe edge where food is concentrated. Pods of Narwhal can be spotted resting only meters from the edge while an incredible variety of sea birds, including Thick-billed murres, kittiwakes, guillemots, and Ivory gulls, fly overhead. Polar bears and seals may also be spotted at times swimming or resting on ice packs during 24 hours of sunlight. If you are lucky, you may also observe Bowhead and Beluga whales that also frequent the area.

"Narwhals are very shy. They have a sensitive nature and excellent echolocation. You can see hundreds passing by the ice edge, but when you slip into the water, you may never see one."

- Paul Nicklen on assignment with National Geographic

Premium Safari Camp

Inspired by African mobile safari camps, the Premium Safari Camp brings elegance and comfort to the Arctic.
The modern, specially designed yurt-style safari camp structures have double walls with insulation to provide a warm and inviting home in one of the world's most remote, yet breathtaking places.


Nestled between the majestic mountains of Baffin Island and Bylot Island, our Arctic Safari Camp provides a comfortable home-away-from-home and a perfect respite after an exciting day spent out on the floe edge. Located just outside of Sirmilik National Park, (which means “place of glaciers”) near Pond Inlet, our camp enjoys a striking backdrop of towering granite cliffs and glistening glaciers. 


Sleep quarters are spacious and warm with over 10’ cathedral ceilings. The yurt-style safari sleep structures are 16’ in diameter and are entered via a lockable door. Configurations with either two twin beds or one king size bed are available. Each bed is complete with mattress duvets, pillows, and a warm comforter. No detail has been overlooked - from large windows that give a 360 degree view, to coat hooks, cozy rugs, and heaters for those that would like it a little toastier, our Premium Safari Camp provides the perfect home away from home.


Other Premium Safari Camp Features:



  • Large and spacious dining/lounge area with central fireplace, stove, and 24 hour buffet with snacks and drinks.

  • Shared washroom facility with on demand hot water sinks and showers.


This camp may be set up on land or directly on ice, depending on location and time of year.
