Polar Bear Provincial Park

Remote, and accessible only by air, Ontario's largest and most northerly park features unspoiled low-lying tundra.

Sub-arctic conditions prevail in the park, which is the domain of woodland caribou, moose, marten, fox, beaver, goose, black bear, and polar bear. Seals, walruses, beluga and white whales frequent coastal and esturial areas. As many as 200 polar bears lumber through coastal areas at certain times. The peak period is early November. In late spring, hundreds of species of bird descend upon the region. White geese can be seen rising gracefully above the sear barren.

 

Until roughly 4000 years ago, the mid-Silurian limestone bedrock (450 million years old) here was submerged beneath the Tyrrell Sea, a massive body of water that has retreated into the present Hudson and James Bays. Post glacial gravels and sands are overlain by a layer of sedimentary clay.

There are no visitors' facilities. Landing permits must be obtained in advance for each of the park's four airstrips.

The only evidence of human habitation in the park is an abandoned radar station, part of a former military defense line. It consists of squat metal buildings, oil tanks, radio towers, and a few radar dishes and a landing airstrip.

Visitors to Polar Bear should be prepared for any eventuality. They should bring at least one week's extra supplies in case their departure is delayed due to bad weather. Tents should not rise any higher than necessary, due to the possibility of strong winds.

Location: On the western shore of Hudson Bay, above James Bay, in the far northern area of the province
