Natural Habitat Adventures and Great White Bear Tours operate one of the most incredible wildlife viewing spots on Earth. Tundra Lodge camp Manager Jason Luoma, who by the way, manages Natural Habitat’s Greenland Base Camp as well, took these photos over the past few years. The first pic, sleeping bear, is from this week. The view from the lodge is so serene and breathtaking that polar bears become just part of the landscape…especially when they are sleeping. Photographers and wildlife enthusiasts come to this place for unimaginable chances to capture polar bears and other Arctic wildlife in action. And, most times expectations are exceeded beyond belief!
