Our packages are built around the changing of the seasons. Summer and fall happen all too fast – within ten weeks a year. Needless to say, it’s a short window to experience mother nature’s striking beauty. The seasons are short and intense – that’s life in the Arctic. We invite you to come and experience this spectacular place while staying in the comforts of our lodge. The experience may very well inspire you to return to do it all over again, just like George. We’re open July through September.

We were able to host two private groups and offer two staycation packages, including our new Explorer’s Package and our Arctic Photography Workshop to local residents.
