Map of Resolute

Welcome to Resolute!

Also referred to as Resolute Bay, this small northern community is located on the southeast corner of Nunavut's Cornwallis Island, about 800 km (1,118 mi) from the North Pole. It is a place of ancient glaciers, mountain ranges and unspoiled land. Originally established in 1947 as a weather station and military airfield, Resolute is now a small town made up of gravel roads, a police station and three hotels. With just over 200 residents, Resolute is one of the northernmost towns in Canada. This makes Resolute a gateway to the North Pole and a base for scientific research teams and polar expeditions. The adventurous traveler wanting to visit Resolute Bay will find opportunities for dog sledding, snowmobiling, and viewing the northern lights. Yet the most truly unique experience will be the midnight sun when the area experiences 24 hours of sunlight from the end of April to mid-August.
