A well-rounded company that lived up to all its promises. The tundra buggy drivers an our guide were relentless in seeking our bear and they succeeded beyond our expectations as we had multiple sightings on both of our outings. The frosting on the cake was a superior dog sled presentation and ride.

We spent 2 consecutive days on the tundra buggy. We were lucky to get the same driver both days. We saw at least 4 Polar bears each day. Got great pictures both days... Although it is nicer with less people... Kevin was our driver and found the bears for us. Also saw other small animals.

Once in a lifetime experience. The Lodge is minimal but environmentally sensitive and allows you to sleep out the tundra surrounded by Arctic animals. We had a polar bear hang around the whole time we were there. The food was delicious and the staff professional,friendly and helpful. It is only there the 5 weeks in October and November when the...

Hi floodnik, We agree, the Lodge is a completely unique experience. Thank you for your review and fingers crossed for colder weather so the polar bears can head out onto the ice to hunt. Taylor

I recently spent two nights/ three days with Frontiers North in their tundra buggy lodge from October 18 - 20. They're a very well organized company, considering that they've got tours going on non stop at this time of the year. I flew up with 6 others from the same tour and we met the other members of our tour...

Repeating what others have said, this was a wonderful trip and so much fun! Besides seeing polar bears, foxes, and ptarmigans, there was the experience of staying at the lodge with other like-minded travelers. The lodge is warm, clean, and comfortable. There are 3 bathrooms per lodge, but it somehow works out. You can get up early for a shower...

Frontiersnorth tundra buggy tours is a trip of a lifetime bucket list experience. I went with my 78 yr old mum & 32 yr old daughter, a three generational girl thing. The buggies are big, plenty of room. If you can request a driver, Neil is an absolute legend. He shares so much knowledge, jokes and makes the whole experience...

The experience of seeing arctic wildlife in their own environment is breathtaking. The lodge was quite comfortable, offering good food and drink, even working with special diets. Here's our tips for the best experience: Request bunks at the far end of the lodge. You will have no one walking past you to use the facilities so sleep is quite restful....

Frontiers North Adventures take very good care of you. Staying on the Tundra Buggy Lodge was a wonderful experience. Not as rustic as you might think: real flushing toilets, real showers, beds and pillows are very comfortable, food was excellent and the staff very attentive. They are the only tundra buggy company allowed to have their lodge that far out...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tundra Buggy(R) Lodge, situated in the heart of polar bear country, offers an unique, immersive experience where guests can fall asleep and wake up with polar bears right outside the window. The lodge consists of two brand new (2012) accommodation units, a lounge and cafe, and staff quarters. Viewing platforms connect each unit and allow for outdoor photography. Situated far from the lights of town, the Tundra Buggy(R) Lodge is the perfect place to view bears all day long and have optimal northern lights viewing at night (weather permitting).
