Activity adventure | Natural world | Sports & activities | Wildlife

Arctic Haven is a wilderness lodge sitting on the tree line of the Canadian Arctic Barrens. Open from April to mid-September, the activities are designed in conjunction with the seasons. In May touring takes place by snowmobile and from August touring takes place on the water. The lodge is a co-owned by Josee Auclair and Richard Weber – Richard is one of the most travelled North Pole explorers in the world.

Eat

All meals are included and local delicacies on the menu can include muskox and Arctic char – produce tends to locally sourced meats, vegetables and fish. A typical day will start with fresh hot muffins and a hearty breakfast and end with a chilled glass of wine shared amongst fellow explorers, as stories of the day are exchanged.

Sleep

The lodge is a beautiful post and beam construction with 12 ensuite guest rooms. Each of these rooms is well-maintained and appointed, providing a tranquil retreat after a day packed with wildlife and adventure activities. Rooms are simple yet comfortable, equipped with all the amenities required for the stay,

Do

Alongside the hiking, fishing, kayaking, cross country skiing and snow mobiling this region is a haven for wildlife with wolves, grizzly bears and wolverine often sighted. Early May is when the caribou are on the move north and then from late August they begin their journey south with vast numbers spread out over the tundra, this is when you are likely to see mothers with young calves and males with fully grown antlers full of velvet. It’s during the autumn months that the lights of the Aurora Borealis can often be seen dancing above the lodge. Arctic Haven is located on the shores of Ennadai Lake and sits in the path of one of the great caribou migrations, directly on the peninsula. Along this treeline, deep, dense forests lead south, filled with spectacular flora and fauna. Access to the lodge is via a four hour private charter flight from Yellowknife; this, along with a pre- and post-night hotel in the town is included in the tour price.
