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.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
