Arrive at Arctic Haven
Having arrived independently to Yellowknife, the capital city of Canada’s Northwest Territories, you will join your two-hour private charter flight to Arctic Haven in the remote Canadian Arctic. Upon arrival you will be warmly welcomed and shown to your comfortable room, your base for the next 6 nights. After settling in and exploring your new surroundings you will meet your team and have an introduction into what to expect over the next few days. After a delicious gourmet dinner you may wish to wind down in the wood fired sauna, enjoy your first of many walks along the tundra or relax outside in the Arctic wilderness on the lookout for an appearance from the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).
The following day you will enjoy your first full day of adventures, designed to allow you the best access to observations of the iconic Arctic wolves of Ennadai Lake. After breakfast you will head out on the water to reach the northern reaches of the lake in search of Qamanirjuaq caribou, wolves, and wolverines. Hiking around 5kms inland across the beautiful tundra you will hope to reach a wolf den to quietly observe the wolf pack hunting the migrating caribou to nourish the new pubs before winter sets in.
In the early evening you will be collected by helicopter for an exciting and scenic return to the lodge for a gourmet dinner and an after-dinner talk from explorer Richard Weber who will recount tales of his famous North Pole expeditions.
Exploring Around the Arctic Barren Lands
Over the course of the next four days you will enjoy multiple activities and excursions designed to allow you to observe the area’s unique wildlife up-close and to provide you with unforgettable photographic opportunities. Some mornings will start with an exciting early morning helicopter flight to Grayling rapids - a natural corridor used by migratory wildlife and hunting wolves. After disembarking, your group will set off for a hike across the caribou trails and on towards the wolf den for more observations of the Ennadai Lake wolf pack. As you soak up the sights of the autumnal tundra and watch the cute wolf pups frolicking in the afternoon sun the photo opportunities will be endless.
Another morning may start with a boat ride to the North Arm and far reaches of the lake to look for caribou swimming between the islands. You could hike up to Big Bear, the highest point on the lake, to search for memorable sightings of grizzly bears, take helicopter flights to the wolf dens and practice your photography skills, and enjoy hikes along the landscapes surrounding the lodge.
Each night you will return to the lodge for a delicious dinner, informal after-dinner lectures and chances to see and photograph the unforgettable Northern Lights.
On your final day at Arctic Haven there will be time for one last adventure as you take a short boat ride up the Kazan River to look for sightings of moose and tundra swans. You may enjoy a final hike to see the contrasting tundra here, where forest and birch, black spruce and tamarack trees dominate the landscape, or partake in some fishing in the river.
Later in the afternoon you will join your private charter flight back to Yellowknife where your itinerary ends.
