Lazy Bear Expeditions

January 17, 2020 Success Stories

Wally Daudrich, owner and Founder of Lazy Bear Lodge, was a local Polar Bear tour guide who saw the potential of turning two tragic forest fires into a positive experience for visitors to the Arctic. His plan was to create an eco-friendly lodge that would reflect the history and beauty of its surroundings. With construction beginning in 1995 and completion in 2005, Wally says: “It took a long time and was a tough go, but it’s all worth it when we see our guests’ happy faces as they return from a great day of exploring the wonders of the natural Arctic world around us.”
