Bathurst Inlet, Nunavut: An Arctic Oasis

Imagine yourself in a place of rolling hills, snaking eskers, gently meandering rivers and awesome gorges, walking among a plethora of wildflowers, observing breeding shorebirds and songbirds up-close, perhaps seeing a Barren-ground Caribou with magnificent antlers across the horizon. From the moment you step off the plane at Bathurst Inlet, you will be in awe of the vastness of the land. Each rise in the tundra brings another discovery.

Bathurst Inlet is a wildlife haven on the mid-Arctic coast 50 kilometres above the Arctic Circle. The relatively mild climate encourages diverse and luxuriant vegetation providing prime habitat for northern life. More than 125 species of wildflower have been identified here. Some 80 bird species, including the striking Yellow-billed Loon, can be found here during the summer along with resident Muskoxen, Barren-ground Grizzly Bears, Arctic Wolves and Arctic Foxes.

In addition to wildlife, we will have unparalleled opportunities to delve into geology and will learn how to “read the land”. We will also discover ancient signs of human activity including fox traps, food caches, tent rings and caribou decoy inuksuit. In the evenings, we can relax at Bathurst Inlet Lodge, an historic Hudson’s Bay trading post. Our stay would not be complete without a chance to meet the modern Bathurst Inlet residents, some of whom have key roles in the operation of our lodge. Every encounter here will be a discovery!

“The program offered by dedicated, knowledgeable, friendly staff still makes Bathurst Inlet Lodge an Arctic experience like no other. A week on land in that diverse, expansive landscape turns up surprises every day. I don’t expect this will be my last trip!”  C.R.
