Sitting on the edge of Hudson Bay, this remote outpost is a mecca for wildlife. From seasonal resident polar bears to renowned birdwatching to thousands of migrating beluga whales, you’re surrounded by a flurry of bucket-list wonders all year round.

Come in the summer to be outnumbered by the many beluga whales on zodiac boat rides, or in October to see the star attraction of the mighty bears.

Watch these fluffy but ferocious creatures hunt for ringed seals from the frozen bay as you ride tundra buggies across the endless arctic majesty and realise just how far you are from the rest of the world.
