Heritage Angus Beef

Heritage Angus Beef

Regard as one of the best quality Angus beef producers worldwide, Heritage Angus supplies Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge with the finest product available.

"At Heritage Angus Beef, how we work is how we live ‚ close to the land, in harmony with nature, connected to the highest quality standards possible". We are a group of western Canadian ranching families who are committed to working together to produce quality beef that is ecologically and economically viable. Our values reflect our agricultural heritage - honesty and integrity, trust and respect. Most important, our business is built on a healthy respect for relationships in everything we do. We believe the way plants, animals and people relate in a healthy, sustainable environment is crucial to the health and wellness of the world we all share. Heritage Angus Beef sets the highest of standards by paying close attention to animal welfare, food safety, traceability, environmental stewardship and rural Canadian values.

We continually test equipment, always looking for the best products available on the market. The team at Arctic Watch continually requires equipment that is durable, high quality and can always be relied on, while out on the tundra. That's why we choose to use Arc'teryx. Simply the best.



We're always testing equipment, in search of the best available gear on the market. We're proud to partner with Suunto to have the best wrist-watches for our guides: watches that provide up-to-date information while we're out on the tundra, and allow us to make better decisions.

I have been to Arctic Watch 4 times and am returning this summer for my 5th visit. If you are a lover of the wilderness, a fan of the North, or just generally curious about the more extreme portions of our planet, Arctic Watch should be number one on your "must visit" list.

there are many ways to see the Arctic but none so unique as Arctic Watch. You don't need to be an athlete or even particularly fit and yet Youspend the day experiencing wilderness at the most intimate level. Then pass your evenings sipping a cocktail, having a delcious dinner and sleeping warmly and comfortably under a down covering. The early Arctic explorers could not have imagined it. 

For wildlife afficianados there is no better way to get up close and personal with Beluga whales, musk oxen snowy owls and even the occasional polar bear. Photographers can have a field day. Gull Canyon alone is worth the trip.

the Weber family and their staff work tirelessly to ensure that their guests are safe, comfortable and having more fun than you'd think possible in such a remote location. There are few travel opportunities that offer a better travel dollar value proposition and I heartily recommend it to any serious traveler.
