When you can no longer stand the sweltering summer heat, make an escape to Hudson Bay, Manitoba. The average June and July highs usually hover just below 60 degrees and is a welcome retreat from the hot summer weather.
A trip to the Hudson Bay region provides an opportunity to experience truly unique adventures. You’ll get to see the beautiful tundra and taiga of the Manitoba coast. Among some of the wildlife home to the Manitoba landscape are Canadian Polar Bears, Caribou, seals, arctic hares and foxes.
A stay at Manitoba’s famous Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge is highly recommended. The lodge can only be reached by plane and gives you a tremendous opportunity to observe Hudson Bay’s polar bear habitat. The lodge itself offers lectures and instruction on Canada’s polar bears and other wildlife of the Hudson Bay region. You also have the option to take an ATV excursion to the Bay’s tidal flats. Although you may encounter polar bears while you explore on your own, it’s not uncommon to see them wandering close to the lodge. All day polar bear photography trips allow you to get close enough to take unbelievable photos of these awesome creatures.
You definitely do not want to miss out on a scenic night of watching the Northern Lights. The bright dancing lights of the aurora can be seen nearly 300 days out of the year.
