Our Location

This is polar bear country!

Churchill Wild operates four luxury ecolodges, three of which are located deep in the heart of polar bear territory on the Hudson Bay coast in northern Manitoba, Canada.

The only physical lodges located on the “polar bear highway” that the bears traverse from May through November as they wait for Hudson Bay to freeze over, our polar bear lodges are ideally situated to provide unmatched access to polar bears and a great variety of Arctic wildlife.

Seal River Heritage Lodge, a recent inclusion in the prestigious National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, is located 60 km north of Churchill near the Seal River estuary where thousands of beluga whales congregate every summer. Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge is situated 250 km southeast of Churchill near the historic York Factory and newly discovered polar bear denning areas. Dymond Lake Ecolodge is 30 km north of Churchill on a strip of land bordered by Dymond Lake and Hudson Bay, and North Knife Lake Wilderness Lodge is 200 km southwest of Churchill in the boreal forest.

These exclusive locations are part of what makes our safaris the most unique polar bear, beluga whale and northern lights viewing adventures on the planet. A rare combination of four varied eco-systems, with a southern climate modified by a vast cold ocean, creates conditions where polar bears, black bears and grizzly bears co-exist, where caribou meet moose, and where birds from the Arctic share the skies with their counterparts from the prairies.
