Polar bears, muskox, iceberg safari in northern Quebec


Travel to the remote norther Nunavik region of Canada’s Far North. Encounter musk-oxen herds, seals, icebergs - and experience awesome sightings of polar bears along the Arctic coastline of Ungava Bay on this wildlife safari from a base camp in northern Quebec.

The little-explored and remote wilderness of Ungava Bay Nunavik is hauntingly beautiful, historically significant and wildlife-rich. The skies here are often filled with a variety of seabirds, shorebirds, migratory waterfowl and birds-of-prey. Seals and beluga whales wander up Leaf Inlet from the open sea. Musk-oxen range and graze along the shores and hills. Polar bears spend the summertime on the numerous coastal islands as they wait for the sea ice to return.

Prehistoric musk-oxen herds roam and graze year-round along the shores on the lush, rolling tundra landscape and semi-mountainous terrain: there are thousands of musk-oxen in dozens of herds in this region along Leaf Bay and the Nunavik coastal plains of Ungava Bay. Herd sizes can range from a single bull to more than 30 animals.

Compared to many of the big commercial polar bear trips available out there, this is an altogether new, little-explored and photographed polar bear region that offers a completely different experience. We do not offer trips that involve large groups of people in big ATV's or similar machines... Instead we quietly travel in small groups on the coastal waters along with local Inuit guides who live, trap and hunt here year-round, and who benefit directly from our activities. We gently visit the polar bears and other wildlife in their natural habitat and environment. It's the real deal....

Come travel and explore with us to this magnificent remote wilderness area on a special boating / camping expedition. Over several days we will explore our way up Leaf Bay and into the coastal islands of Ungava Bay Nunavik. We will travel in safety using quality power boats piloted by local Inuit guides who are highly seaworthy and familiar with the area, history, wildlife and tidal fluctuations.

SUGGESTED CLOTHING

Your equipment must be carefully chosen to be durable, weather resistant and insect-proof. Layered clothing for temperature control is best. Outer garments such as cotton or wool are advisable when approaching to observe wildlife, as they are much quieter than plastic or nylon. All clothing should be dull colour or camouflage. Bright coloured clothing or fluorescent are a NO-NO when stalking animals. Boots should be worn in and suitable for hiking off trail over sand, rocks and wet terrain. Rubber boots or sneakers are sufficient for canoe paddling. You should have waterproof rain gear that you can comfortably hike in.

Bring a variety of clothing for both warm and cool weather, warm clothing that you can layer (fleece or wool is good) rain gear, hiking boots, hat, gloves, warm socks, rubber boots.

SUGGESTED ITEMS

Camera and photography equipment, day pack, water bottle, flashlight, sunglasses, sunscreen, binoculars.

ACCOMMODATIONS

Accommodations are in shared tents at the camp.

The overnight camps are not set up in areas frequented by polar bears, but rather built further up the inlet in musk-ox country. Weather and sea conditions permitting, we will travel out from the camp to look for polar bears by extended day-long boat trips. Depending on where the musk-oxen are, we will set up a professional tent camp to use as our main base to launch daily wildlife and exploratory trips overland and by boat. These are very comfortable camps with large stand-up 2-4 person shared sleeping tents complete with cots, rugs and heaters.

The camp kitchen serves up scrumptious and abundant meals daily. Also on site are watercraft, satellite and radio communications, firearms, GPS and emergency equipment. Depending on exactly where the musk-oxen herds are from season to season, we are sometimes able to use existing cabin facilities.
