Ellesmere Island is an island in Nunavut, Canada.


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.

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.
