Resolute

Resolute, home to 215, is located in the High Arctic on Cornwallis Island facing Barrow Strait.

Resolute provides a jumping off point for charter flights to Canada’s most northerly park, Quttinirpaaq National Park, hundreds of miles away on the northern tip of Ellesmere Island. The area is full of beautiful wildflowers, and in June, thousands of birds come to nest on nearby islands. The community looks south towards Somerset Island which each year draws one the largest gatherings of beluga whales in the world to Cunningham Inlet for calving. http://www.arcticcircle.ca/Baffin/Res/ http://www.brosha.com/resolute/, http://www.innsnorth.com/html/inns-acc-nun-resolute.htm
