I had an amazing time at this unique and remote lodge. I had amazing experiences with wolves and polar bears. The staff was amazing and I will keep in touch with some of them and I have never eaten as much good food as I did here. Overall an amazing experience that I would recommend to everyone and I will never forget. Top notch!

We LOVED Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge! The setting was spectacular, the lodge was cozy and comfortable, the food was delicious, the staff friendly and helpful, and the guides were very knowledgeable, and fantastic at scouting out wildlife for us to view.

We have been staying at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge before, albeit in winter. This fall trip was just as wonderful! As always, the lodge was cozy and the staff was very friendly and helpful and made us feel like coming home. The food is great, too! We spent a week at Nanuk in September and had many beautiful wildlife encounters: polar bears, black bears, wolves, geese and even moose! We‘ll definitely be coming back. Our thanks to the entire team of Churchill Wild!

I am frustrated with Trip Advisor asking if this Hotel requires masks and allows only a Yes or No answer. You cannot get into Canada without being vaccinated. Canada finally opened and we were able to take the Churchill Wild Fall Dual Lodge Safari. We were there October 8th through the 18th. In short, this is the place to be for Polar Bear safari’s. Both Lodges, Seal Lodge and Nanuk Lodge, are at the edge of Hudson Bay. Once the migration of the bears gets into full swing as the ice forms you are in the right spot. Both are comfortable, the rooms are well appointed and the public areas in the lodges are very roomy, with comfortable sofas, lots of picture windows, as well as porches to sit on or just get outside to see the bears. There are raised viewing areas at Seal Lodge on the bay side and both lodges have a tower you can get an elevated view from. The meals were excellent. We never ate the same thing twice. They are a combination of local and Winnipeg sourced food which they fly in weekly, the lodges are nowhere near Churchill so you and everything else is flown in, which is a fun way to arrive there. We had 10 people on our tour so we were 5 people in each plane that normally holds about 9. The windows are large and easy to get pictures out of as we did in Nanuk (more later). There are three meals every day and even with the 3+ miles a day you might walk you can easily gain weight. The guides are excellent with two assigned at each lodge and Seal had four because there were two trainees. But, in terms of knowledge it was hard to tell who was a trainee. Every one of them knew everything and they all know how to deal with polar bears. We got as close as 50 feet, maybe less, as one cub got curious and decided to walk over to us. But it is amazing how with words and a few small rocks thrown in their direction lessens their interest with us. Walking with Polar Bears was safer than walking down a dark alley at home. We saw our first bears within 6 minutes of getting off the plane and walking to Seal Lodge. A mother and her cub. The second day another mother with her two cubs joined us. So we had 5 bears, permanently, devoted to entertaining us. They were there when we got up, they were there throughout the day, though they did walk around and many time to the same places we were walking to. When we were behind our fences, or in back on the raised platforms you didn’t need a telephoto lens for your pictures of a lifetime. But, that was our allotment of bears. They were there all the time, but no other bears came. In a way that was a blessing in disguise. We also happened to be there during an unusual warm spell. Temperatures hit a high of the low 40’s and never got below 30 with most lows about 35 to 40. Then we flew to Nanuk where the departing group had seen no bears. They did see foxes, rabbits, moose and other wildlife, but no bears. We had less luck and did not see a single Moose. We spent of lot of time hiking about, and wore boots continually as there is a lot of water and muck to walk through, looking for Moose. We learned how to call a Moose. We never found one. But Nanuk too was a great lodge. The staff was excellent. The meals excellent. The organization excellent. The training and procedures were well thought out and everything ran smoothly. The owner of the company lives at Nanuk with his wife and children. And he had a gift for us. One of the planes they lease was headed back to Churchill but had no schedule set to leave. So he organized two flights for us. Five per flight. Everyone with a window seat. A guide up front as lookout. Each flight flew East for 15 minutes and then back West over the same path, low enough so one could the blades of grass. And through the flight we could hear the guide yelling out “Bears on the right”, “Bears on the Left”, “Moose, White Fox”, etc. In total we saw a dozen or more bears in groups, lots of Moose, and were able to get good pictures even moving at 140 MPH. It may not have been the best way to see them, but we did see them, and it’s just another example of the care for the customers that we saw throughout the tour. I can highly recommend Churchill Wild for an unforgettable trip. They are highly organized and everyone obviously cares for their guests. Weather is always a gamble and going later in October, or better in November will increase favorable weather conditions, but in the end animals are animals and you can’t always force them to show up. Go. You won’t regret it. And I cannot see getting a better experience than Churchill Wild provides.

We just returned from our trip with Churchill Wild's Dual Safari, visiting both Seal River and Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge. While we saw no wildlife at Nanuk, the staff and guides were excellent and the food was delicious. Everyone went out of their way to make the guests feel special. Since we hadn't seen any bears, moose or wolves during our daily outings, Mike arranged for our group to go out in a plane ride to find wildlife that wasn't too far away. We thank him for this special treat as we were able to see groups of polar bears and moose which we had been hunting for 4 days. Kevin and Jodie went beyond trying to locate the moose and her calf for us but they would not make a showing. Still, we all had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this place. We were fortunate to have 5 polar bears (including a 10 month old cub and twin 2 yr olds) during our stay at Seal River Lodge as well as northern lights rated a '10' . It was the experience of a lifetime.
