Join us in June-July 2021 for an exploration trip to the heart of the territory of polar bears and black bears in Quebec-Labrador. In the summer of 2021 we are continuing our exploration of wildlife habitats that we undertook in 2019 and this time at your request, you can join our team!

During this trip we will explore the most promising areas to document and understand the behavior of polar bears and black bears that feed on arctic char and salmon (fishing bears). We will also document all the wildlife that coexist in this same arctic region: caribou, wolf, fox, snowy owl...


  • The wildlife which has never been in contact with man and which presents a remarkable natural behavior of curiosity.
  • Rivers frequented by bears where Arctic char and salmon migrate.
  • The dens of wolves and foxes.
  • The observation camp located on the migration route of the George River caribou herd and near its calving site.
  • Float plane outings to explore the coastal rivers of the Labrador coast.

General Itinerary

Flight between Montreal and Kuujjuaq in Arctic Quebec "Nunavik". Charter flight from Kuujjuaq to Wedge Hills Lodge (magnificent 5 ***** lodge located along the George River).

The next day we depart by float plane for the Moraine Desert Valley where we will spend six (6) days exploring the behavior of the wildlife from a bivouac observation camp.

Three (3) days are dedicated for exploring the polar bear territory by the sea and the rest of the week we will explore the Moraine Desert Valley for its black bears and wildlife in general.

This trip is for photographers, observers and nature lovers who have a sense of well-organized adventure and who are looking for a trip where everything is to be discovered – flora, fauna and natural wonder.
