Wapusk National Park

April, 2014

Wapusk is Cree for “White Bear” and earns its name because this 11,475-square-kilometre (4,430 sq mi) park protects one of the world’s largest known polar bear maternity denning areas.

Bordering on Hudson’s Bay, it includes a large part of the Hudson James Lowlands, a subarctic natural region where the soil beneath your feet is permanently frozen. The park protects a spectacular transition zone between boreal forest and tundra.

If you visit Wapusk you will find yourself in one of Canada’s wildest and remote places.
