Nanuk Operations

In 2017, after a decade of working with polar bears and wildlife on the ground, Caleb Ross combined his past work in the film industry and new experience in Northern Canada and started Nanuk Operations with the aim to provide ground level tourism and guiding services in the Churchill, Manitoba area. Originally the business focused on photographers and film crews, but we have since branched out to include adventure travellers, and those wanting to experience small group, intimate tours for wildlife, polar bears, northern lights and more.


We now offers tours during four seasons of the year, have won an award for our Nights Under Lights aurora product and are the recipient of Tripadvisors "Travellers Choice Award" for 2024, putting us in the top 10% of "Things To Do" worldwide. We are constantly expanding with new, unique and exciting adventures to grow the local tourism experience.

At Nanuk Operations we strive to provide exciting, informative and sustainable experiences to our guests, and look forward to continuing to do so for years to come.


As well as running Nanuk Operations, Caleb also works off the coast of Baffin Island, running Arctic sea ice tent camps for polar bear and ice berg tourism with Arctic Kingdom for the last 3 years, being in charge of everything on the ground from logistics and tours to full staff, guiding and camp operations as Expedition Leader.

Among many other adventures Caleb was also a part of a 4 month dog sled expedition that departed from Churchill, MB on January 22nd 2018 and arrived in St John NB in May of the same year. Transport included dog sled, snowmobile and vehicle while winter camping across the north. Filming this expedition for a CBC doc, Caleb was both team member of the expedition and sole crew member for the doc, acting as cinematographer and field director. This expedition put them through some of Canadas most beautiful, and in some cases extremely remote, landscapes and areas, including the Polar Bear provincial park in Northern Ontario.
