Excellent trip! We went up to see polar bears and other wildlife and we got MORE than we even hoped for! The bush pilot was excellent and Alain our wildlife guide was amazing. The lodge was also extremely comfortable for being out in the “wild.” Food was wonderful. I would highly recommend Rapid Lake Lodge if you are interested in viewing wildlife. Be sure to come as many days as you can in case the weather is bad for the bush flights. Rapid Lake Lodge’s fishing guide taught me how to fly fish as well, he was an excellent and patient teacher!

Just a short note to let you know what a wonderful experience it was for Cheryl & I to visit Rapid Lake Lodge. It was fascinating walking around the lodge and exploring the tundra while looking for bear and picking berries. The two days of “fly outs” to visit the Torngat mountains, northern Quebec and the Labrador coast were also highlights of the trip. I never thought that Cheryl and I would be approaching both black bear and polar bear on foot but we felt very comfortable since we were in such good hands.
The highlights for us were the close views of the huge black bear when we were hiking on the other side of the lake, the fishing polar bears, seeing the caribou, the amazing fjord scenery in Torngat Mountain Park and visiting Hebron Fjord. All the meals were great but the one with fresh baked bread, hot smoked arctic char and fresh picked/fresh baked blueberry pie was one of the best meals we have every had anywhere (and we travel a lot).
In short – Rapid Lake is a great lodge in a great location with great food and great hosts. Everyone who has seen our photos has commented on the spectacular scenery and wildlife.
We both hope to be able to come back some day!

Despite the bad weather, we had a great time with you. We will always remember the calm and professional way, you guided us on the polar and black bear photo safaris. The sneaking up behind you into great observation positions was an exciting experience. You also found the right spots where we could, unnoticed from the bears, observe them for extended periods. Well done!! I hope we can come again soon. Kind regards.

Approaching those animals on foots and observing them without being detected is always a very exciting moments. Thanks to our guide!

We saw lots of black bears, an arctic wolf, and osprey in our travels… We were treated with sighting five polar bears, tidal rapids, and incredible scenery. This is an incredible part of the world; we were able to experience a small part of it. I am looking forward to returning next summer to explore further.
