Arctic Watch is Canada's most northerly wilderness lodge, located on Somerset Island, Nunavut. A visit to Arctic Watch is an all-encompassing arctic safari. Visitors see thousands of beluga whales, roaming musk oxen, polar bears, arctic foxes, snowy owls, archeological sites, and more.

The lodge features a main complex housing a kitchen, dining room, lounge, gear room and shower house. Arctic Watch features 16 private cabins, which are equipped with warm duvets. The cabins are set in an outback silence so profound it will lull you into the deepest sleep. The lodge can accommodate up to 20 guests plus staff. The gourmet food, served daily, is direct from Josée's Kitchen and is hearty, tasty, and appropriate for the environment.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
