Two curious polar bear cubs watch our boat passing by from the shore of a remote island at Ungava Bay in Nunavik Canada. They have probably never seen anything like that before! Photo taken by client Lessli Strong. Lessli writes:

"This was my second trip with GCWA and was even better than my first trip in 2015... We spotted six polar bears on our very first day and then over the rest of the trip saw more bears, musk ox, seals and some of the group saw wolves circling a group of musk ox."

LIVE FROM THE FIELD [September 14, 2017]: A pair of curious polar bears cubs watch from the sea-washed shore of a remote barren island in Ungava Bay, Nunavik. Photo taken by client Lessli Strong during our 'Polar Bears, Musk-ox, Icebergs & Seals' wildlife expedition. Lessli writes:

"I enjoyed the tour immensely and learned so much about the wildlife and the local environment. The arrangements made by Tom are excellent and must take many hours of hard work and organization. The guides were very knowledgeable and very respectful of the wildlife and the environment. They were careful to ensure that guests understood the need for care in how the environment and the animals were approached."

LIVE FROM THE FIELD [August 18 2017]: A group of clients hiking along the sea-washed shores of Ungava Bay are surprised by a pair of musk-ox bulls on the ridge above. The rest of the herd was nearby over the hill.

LIVE FROM THE FIELD [August 15, 2017]: A polar bear sow and her two cubs swim between coastal islands on Ungava Bay in Nunavik Canada.

Although blanketed by coastal fog for the first few days, the first group saw several herds of musk-oxen close up, and four polar bears. It was a fantastic expedition! Our second trip start today.

"The Autumn Musk ox and Northern Lights adventure was a magical experience.. I went in hopes of seeing the Northern Lights, and was delighted on my first night to have them come out and dance across the sky. It was an amazing welcome to the camp where the next 10 days were filled with new discoveries... We had other thrills; coming across the musk ox, a bear, [Arctic fox] and bringing in lake trout for dinner. The food was plentiful, but there was something special about being in the wild and being able to gain sustenance from it. The dramatic sunsets, the Northern lights.., the wildlife, stunning vistas, the pure air and water... and the very competent and friendly staff made it a truly magical adventure. This is Inuit territory and we were fortunate to touch their world."

"...Looking at the wolf through my camera and telephoto lens was a sight to behold. His head, face and shoulders filled the entire image as he peeked over the top of the ridge searching for my exact whereabouts. He seemed to sense I meant no harm or danger to him so he descended the small ridge, crossed over in front of me and headed for the shade of the esker pine trees that were below me and to my left. There in the shade sat this great white wolf, intelligent, inquisitive and extremely social. No fences, no enclosures, no platforms, no blinds, no vehicles-just the beauty of this wilderness and the two of us enjoying each others company as any two friends would do. Finally the wolf got up and started crossing yet another ridge. There he paused and looked back at me one more time before disappearing over the backside. Today my photographs stand as testament to what was for me a true spiritual experience..."
