Ellesmere Island is an island in Nunavut, Canada.

Understand[edit]

The world's tenth largest island, Ellesmere Island only has one small community called Grise Fiord. All other communities on the island are either militarily or scientifically based.

Get in[edit]

The community of Grise Fiord is can be reached by flying there from Resolute Bay on Cornwallis Island.

Get around[edit]

Because Ellesmere Island has such a small population and is such a remote place, there are no highways that go around the island.

See[edit][add listing]

Ellesmere Island is a polar desert, meaning that it almost looks like Martian landscape with the exception of the ice sheets and glaciers.

Do[edit][add listing]

People do some hiking on the island and there is a national park at the northern end of Ellesmere.

Buy[edit][add listing]

Sleep[edit][add listing]

You'll probably want to bring camping equipment with you, if possible, especially if you want to hike around parts of the island.

Get out[edit]

  • Greenland is not far away; it's just across the strait from Ellesmere.
  • Baffin Island is to the south and has a much higher population.
