• Seal River Heritage Lodge, Churchill Wild, Canada

About Seal River Heritage Lodge, Hudson Bay

Accessible by flight only, the views as you approach the remote Seal River Heritage Lodge are breathtaking over the Hudson Bay Coast. This intimate family-run eco-lodge is one of the best places to see Polar Bears in the wild, not only that, but you might even see them at eye level.

Stay in authentic Canadian Wilderness style and be treated like a member of the family as you explore numerous nature trails, relax by the cosy fire or climb the watch tower for wonderful views. 

Not just great for bears, the lodge is close to the Seal River Estuary, where thousands of Beluga Whales gather in the summer months, a spectacular wildlife viewing opportunity.

Seal River Heritage Lodge details


Authentic Canadian wilderness living, but with the comforts of home.


Isolated on the Hudson Bay Coast, a 30 minute scenic flight from Churchill.

Accommodation & Facilities

Rooms are available as queen, twin or family and each one is en-suite. These comfortable living spaces have a real rural feel, with wooden panelling on the walls and comfy beds to sink into after a day out in the wild. Rooms and common areas have huge picture windows, so you don’t lose track of where you are, and you won’t miss any wildlife sightings. There is even a ‘pen’ outdoors, completely fenced in by wire, so we are the ones in captivity, watching the polar bears at eye level as they sniff around curiously.

There are lots of nature trails to follow, and a viewing tower for alternative views and some fantastic photo opportunities.


Gourmet cuisine is served by the Reimer family in the dining area, a large wooden panelled room. Cosy, but with huge windows so you won’t miss a thing…


The myriad of nature trails lead to some wonderful wildlife watching. The barking at the lodge is usually the dogs warning that a bear is making its way towards camp, but there are often sightings of wolves as well. In the summer months you can kayak in the bay, see and touch beluga whales from a zodiac boat or even throw on a dry suit and swim with them. Bear viewing is available from July to November. You might also be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights during your time here.
