About Arctic Watch Lodge
Located 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle and 50 miles from the nearest town, Arctic Watch is a permanent wilderness resort that offers hotel-like accommodations in a remote Arctic setting. The only way to access the lodge is by a private charter flight. Experience the beauty and wonder of this fabulous place, while enjoying the comforts of home and delicious meals. The staff are passionate, professional and experts in their field and will make your stay even more incredible. This is a haven and a must do for nature lovers and photographers. It is an all-encompassing Arctic safari. The wildlife opportunities are incredible and you can see muskox, polar bears, arctic foxes, birds and archaeological sites. There is an array of activities on land and water, sea kayak, raft, mountain bike and ATVs. Climb mountains, fish lakes, and hike through canyons, across tundra and around waterfalls. Enjoy 24 hour daylight too as the lodge only opens July to September annually.
