Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge

Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge is located on Somerset Island, Nunavut. It is an off-the-grid basecamp built to withstand Arctic weather and protect the fragile environment, all while providing guests with a high standard for accommodation and comfort. In addition to the main lodge’s common area, dining room, and showers, there are sixteen private guest cabins with en-suite marine toilets and sinks.

Lodge Cabins:

Sixteen private guest cabins welcome adventurers who visit the Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge. With a small group focus and an average of 1 to 1.5 staff to guest ratio, the lodge provides an intimate environment. Thick duvets are provided atop queen beds and each cabin has a private wash facility equipped with a marine toilet and sink. Due to the extremely sensitive natural environment, private showers are located in the main complex. A generator provides electricity to the cabins from early morning until 11:00 p.m. There’s no electricity at night, not that you need it under the midnight sun.


Our talented chefs bake breads and make yogurts, ice creams, and other delights to satisfy you at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Experience gourmet fare inspired by every Canadian province, from locally sourced Arctic char, Alberta Organic Beef, Okanagan Valley wines, and more.

Food sensitivities, special diets, and personal choices can be accommodated with advance notice.
