Bathurst Inlet Lodge

Activities: Fishing, Nature, Photography, Hiking

ESCAPE TO THE ARCTIC. Come to a land beyond the reach of all roads, to a land that throbs with life during the brief northern summer. As your aircraftcircles to a landing 30 miles north of the Arctic Circle at Bathurst Inlet, the immensity of this land becomes reality. The lodge and small community of Bathurst Inlet are located in Nunavut, some 360 air miles northeast of Yellowknife, on a deep inlet of the same name. Yellowknife is easily accessible in a single day from most southern Canadian cities and some US cities as well.

In summer we travel on the Inlet in a stable and comfortable 40 ft. pontoon boat, which permits wildlife observation and on-the-spot lectures. We dock the "Blue Loo" and hike on the land, exploring, birdwatching, or watching for wildlife. We visit islands of ancient algal limestone, crowded with arctic poppies, cinquefoils and saxifrages, where glaucous, herring, and Thayer's gulls nest in safety from hunting foxes. Peregrine falcons and rough-legged hawks nest on glacier-carved cliffs, and golden eagles soar in lazy spirals against the dark summits. The pace is casual; you can hike to spectacular waterfalls, or gasp in excitement as an arctic char lunges at your lure. Watch as caribou wind their way over ancestral trails, or musk oxen pound over the tundra, their hoofbeats like echoes out of the Pleistocene. Seek a perfect specimen of amethyst, or capture a "pet rock" on an arctic beach.

You'll be lodged in a historic Hudson's Bay Trading Post and Oblate mission which have been transformed into a haven for naturalists. Our dinners are served cafeteria-style with all hot foods kept hot in a steam table. After a day in the open air, appetites are usually healthy, and our food is tasty and plentiful. We usually serve arctic char twice during the week because it is such a treat for our guests.

During most of the year, Bathurst Inlet residents live in the old ways, hunting caribou, musk oxen and seal, fishing, trapping, and travelling on the land and sea. A unique aspect of a visit to the Lodge is the opportunity to get to know the gentle people who make this harsh land their home.
