Spanning 11,475 square kilometres, Wapusk is incredibly diverse with everything from arctic tundra to boreal forest, but there’s so much more to it than that!

Traditionally used by the Cree, Dene, Inuit, and Red River Métis peoples, Wapusk National Park is also one of the world’s largest polar bear maternity denning areas.

Sounds incredible, right? Well, don’t think about visiting without doing some serious research first!

Due to its significance, all activities in the park must be accompanied by a licensed tour operator.

From aerial tours to visits via companies like Wat’chee, those interested will need to plan way ahead if they want to get a glimpse of those beautiful baby cubs.

There’s also a live cam that broadcasts from Cape Churchill and it’s magical!
