The North Seal/Caribou Tundra Safari Adventure.

Enjoy the North Seal Wilderness Adventure PLUS an incredible adventure to the sub-arctic tundra.  You will take a scenic floatplane flight to Gangler’s Tundra Safari mini-lodge situated 90 miles north of our main North Seal River Lodge. The mini-lodge and camp on Courage Lake is on the edge of the 60th parallel bordering Nunavut in the tundra. The tundra (Barrenlands) is vastly different terrain than the sub boreal forest of the North Seal, and the Courage lake region is an great example of it. The terrain here is colorful and breathtaking in the fall. A short walk north of Courage lake camp lies a marker denoting the 60th parallel and border of Manitoba and Nunavut. Long eskers, raised sand formations created by the glaciers extend into Nunavut. One of the largest eskers is the Robertson esker which is just West of Courage lake camp. These were key travel routes for the annual caribou migrations and ancient peoples traveled them as they followed the herds throughout the year for subsistence. Some areas have historic trails carved into the Tundra, some over 1’ deep. The Courage Lake camp was built on the site of an ancient chipping station and you can still see one of the main pieces of quartz used for the ancient tools. On our tundra adventure you will experience a full range of tours, walking the land and traveling by boat, learning about the region’s history, wildlife, flora and fauna, and unique geologic formations. We find new artifacts all the time and will share these discoveries with you. On the south side of the lake lies a wolf den and beautiful river outlet. You will stand in the footprints of the ancient hunters and explorers as you breath in the scope of the beauty of this area and incredible vistas and terrain.
