Arctic Haven: Autumn Arctic
Caribou, Wolves & Northern Lights 6 Nights
Observe one of the largest caribou herds in North American as they roam the Arctic Barrens. The Qamanirjuaq caribou herd passes by Arctic Haven Lodge as they migrate between the northern calving grounds and the tree-line. A herd in the hundreds of thousands strong, they can be seen grazing in small groups against the spectacular fall colours on the tundra and at times may walk within metres of you. Behold the majestic northern lights, and the spectacular reds, greens, and golds of autumn on the tundra.
One day of helicopter supported adventures allows you to access more terrain and make the most of what the Arctic Barren Lands has to offer. Weather permitting, a helicopter on site is used as a shuttle to extend our range and access remote points from where we launch the day’s excursion. Helicopter supported adventures include:
- Trekking & biking the winding caribou trails etched into the tundra.
- Fly fishing for Arctic grayling and lake trout in clear cold streams
- Photographing the caribou, wolves, wolverines and other wildlife that make their home in the Arctic Barren Lands.
Guests have the option to purchase additional flight time onsite if they prefer to utilize the helicopter for greater periods of time.
As part of our adventure toolkit, we also set off from the lodge in boats, on foot or in all-terrain vehicles, where we visit archaeological sites dating to pre-contact, search for wildlife and explore the stunning scenery of the tundra. At day’s end, enjoy a feast prepared by our culinary team followed by a sauna on the lake.
