Weber Arctic

Adventures, by definition, should take you into far-flung places and give you unheard of experiences. They should push you and challenge you – but also reward you. Weber Arctic does just that. Three wilderness lodges dotted throughout the far reaches of Nunavut, each offering their own unique adventures and a chance to experience the unspoiled Arctic – how can you say no? Run by a family of polar explorers with more Arctic records and expeditions under their belts than we can count, you’re in good hands here. Spending time with polar bears, caribou, musk ox or beluga whales; the adventure starts here.

Location

Whether on the shores of Ennadai Lake, Clyde River or the Northwest Passage, we can guarantee you’ll be well off the beaten track with Weber Arctic with each of their three lodges fly-in only. So exactly how do you get here? From Calgary, it’s a three-hour flight into the Northwest Territories capital of Yellowknife, from where the team will pick you up and fly you into your adventure. For somewhere seriously remote, Arctic Watch sits 800km above the Arctic Circle as the most northerly fly-in lodge on earth and with no permanent residents.

Your Room

Committed to the fragile environments in which they stand, each of the three lodges at Weber Arctic strives to tread as lightly as possible. Powered predominantly by green-energy and with water drawn from the nearby rivers and lakes, they’re eco conscious but also indulgently comfortable and after a day exploring the Arctic, you’re guaranteed a cozy bed, warmed by a hot water bottle on those colder nights. The real star here is the cuisine though. Creative, responsible and mouthwateringly good, feast on the likes of Ennadai Lake Trout sashimi and Baffin Bay Turbot whilst sipping on the best Okanagan wines.

Why we like it

Weber Arctic is all about the experience. It connects you with the Arctic on such a deep and intimate level and gives you a sense of discovery nowhere else can. Join the pioneering team here as you kayak with beluga whales, paddleboard down the Cunningham River, hike through the Badlands, fish unfished waters – and even run a marathon if you so choose. Visit between April and May or August and September and pull up a chair to North America’s last great caribou migration at Arctic Haven. Or, in that great pioneering spirit, heli-ski at Baffin Island, down mountains with no name in the world’s most northerly spot for it.
