Not long ago, destination travel to the high Arctic meant staying in a tent on the tundra. In the early 1990s, the Arctic Watch team decided to build the Wilderness Lodge complex on Somerset Island, Nunavut, to bring a new level of comfort to ecotourism.
HOW SPRUNG DELIVERED
The Sprung structures at Arctic Watch Wilderness Lodge provide sleeping, dining and recreational facilities to the hundreds of guests who come throughout the summer season for the ultimate Northern experience. The two larger structures (30’ x 70’ and 30’ x 30’) make up the main complex and include a kitchen, dining room, audio-visual projection room, lounge, showers and more. The lodge also has 16 smaller Sprung structures (measuring 12’ x 12’) that serve as private cabins.
