An Arctic Romance: Arctic Watch named to World’s Most Romantic Adventures by National Geographic

A trip to Arctic Watch is among ten destinations to have recently been named one of The World’s Most Romantic Adventures by National Geographic. Our lodge, situated on banks of the Somerset Island in Canada’s High Arctic, is not your conventional romantic getaway but offers visitors a unique and unforgettable experience under the midnight sun. Listed alongside other trips for two such as hiking in Slovenia, dog sledding in Russia or whitewater rafting in Colombia, Arctic Watch is humbled to be recognized as a great destination for the adventurous couple. The National Geographic article, written by Michaela Trimble offers a great array of destination opportunities for those looking to plan their next getaway. 

The diversity of activities offered at Arctic Watch allows for an action packed week exploring the arctic environment on foot, kayak, and bike. Depending on the season, guests can find themselves fat biking on the frozen Arctic Ocean, kayaking down the Cunningham River, listening to thousands of belugas gurgle and splash in the bay or hiking the vast and open tundra in search of wildlife. Our private cabins face north towards the northwest passage, and offer stunning views of Cunningham Inlet where thousands of beluga whales congregate during the late summer months.

Located 500 miles north of the Arctic Circle, guests experience the beauty of the north under twenty-four-hour daylight. A visit to Arctic Watch a unique adventure for all. Popular among couples seeking an unforgettable experience, Arctic Watch has also had the pleasure of hosting couples on their honeymoon.
