Perched on the rugged coast of Hudson Bay lies Seal River Heritage Lodge, one of the early members of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World collection. Seal River Heritage Lodge is located 60 km and 30 minutes north of Churchill by plane, deep in the heart of polar bear territory.

This lodge is in a prime location for observing polar bears as they wander the coast during the summer and fall, waiting for the bay to freeze. Its location near the Seal River Estuary also makes it ideal for viewing beluga whales in July and August. It has a fenced-in compound, viewing platforms, and a tower that lends itself to unique photography opportunities for the northern lights and the wildlife that approach to check out the sights, sounds, and smells of the lodge.

After a day of trekking the tundra, relax in the cozy lounge, watching for wildlife through expansive picture windows, sharing photos, or talking with new friends.

Lodge Features:
  • Eight guest rooms (queen, king, twin and family rooms), each with their own ensuite washroom
  • Cozy common area with fireplace
  • Fenced compound surrounding the lodge
  • Outdoor viewing tower and decks
  • Library
  • Gift shop
  • Full-service meals
  • 24h electricity via solar power, natural gas, and wood heat
  • Radio/Telephone
  • Satellite wi-fi

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
