On the Landing Strip at Resolute Airport


On the runway at Resolute Airport. Rather pleasingly for this leg of the journey the airline was called "Canadian North" and had a picture of a Polar Bear on the tail. The landing strip was made of compacted gravel and you walked from the plane to the terminal building while the plane was tendered to by vehicles that looked like they had come from a building site.

We were now above the Arctic Circle (Latitude: 66° 33' 44" N) where we would stay for most of this 14 day trip which was spent in near constant daylight.

Air temp: +5ºC Latitude: 74º 38'N Longitude: 94º 45'W

 

These are pictures from a cruise to the High Arctic in August 2010, from Resolute Bay Canada to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland.
