Located in Nunavut Territory, Canada
Wildlife abounds here!
A few of the Types of Wildlife
Polar Bear Family
There is a large polar bear denning area on Wager's Bay south shore.
The caribou here are curious and often come very close to the lodges and cabins.
The snowshoe hare is not often seen like the wolverine and the muskox.
There are guided tours offered of the park and boating tours as well. You can visit tent rings and qarmaq as well as relics of the Hudson's Bay Company and Roman Catholic missions. You can visit the Wager Bay Islands, Ford Lake and the reversing falls, and Hudson's Bay Company outpost.
Usually visitors aren't allowed into the park until the beginning of July to the beginning of August. Before that date, Wager Bay is covered in to much ice to be accessible by boat and in the autumn there is a local saying, "During summertime you may watch polar bears. Afterwards, polar bears watch you!" The park is only accessible by a hired plane or a motor boat but ice problems may slow down your boat progress.
