In early May, with the arrival of spring, the barren-grounds Arctic treeline comes to life. Predatory animals such as wolverines, bears and wolves emerge from a winter of survival. The Qamanirjuaq caribou herd begins to gather together and the call to reach their calving grounds 300 miles to the north drives them northward. The Qamanirjuaq caribou number in the hundreds of thousands and are one of the healthiest herds in Canada. Big lakes such as Ennadai are natural corridors for the migration. Large numbers of Caribou walk up the lake past the lodge.
This arctic photographic safari adventure starts in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories where our private plane flies you to Arctic Haven Lodge on Ennadai Lake.
This spring wildlife and caribou migration is described as a life-altering experience by the biologists and people who have witnessed the wolverines, bears and wolves as well as the caribou migration. Springtime on the barrenlands at Arctic Haven is the best time of the year to see wolves, grizzly bears and wolverines.
