Safaris bring to mind Jeep rides through the middle of the African savanna or airboats zipping along the tributaries of the Amazon, but Arctic Watch offers an entirely different safari experience. Branded as "the most northerly safari lodge on Earth," Arctic Watch is a permanent wilderness resort in Nunavut located 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle and 50 miles away from the nearest town.
Arctic Watch is on Somerset Island, the twelfth-biggest island in Canada. Despite its tremendous size (9,570 square miles,) the island has no permanent residents. As such, it is a haven for many different species of Arctic animals.
There are dozens of different safaris that the lodge offers. These include sea kayaking in the Northwest Passage, rafting the Cunningham River, fishing for Arctic char, and hikes to photograph foxes, polar bears, muskoxen, and beluga whales.
