• Fat Biking On The Northwest Passage

Arctic Watch Lodge Discovery Experience –  Adventure and Wildlife at 74°N |  11 days

Here at the most northerly fly-in lodge on earth enjoy gourmet meals and adventures of a lifetime in the company of world-class polar guides and wildlife photographers.

The Weber family who own the lodge really know the Arctic, having led some of the first polar expeditions to reach the North Pole and set speed records at both poles. They have skied, kayaked, hiked and explored right across Canada’s far north.  Join them for fully guided excursions ranging from wildlife photography and hiking to fat biking the frozen Arctic Ocean, exploring by all-terrain vehicle, sea kayaking alongside beluga whales and more besides.

You'll spend a week at this unique Canadian Arctic wilderness lodge and world-class beluga whale observation site situated 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Observe musk ox, polar bears and other wildlife in their natural habitat with comfortable accommodation and superb food, all just a short flight from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, to Somerset Island in Nunavut.
