National Geographic Resolution spent the day at Gjoa Haven. This is the site where Roald Amundsen over-wintered his vessel, Gjoa, on the first completed navigation through the Northwest Passage. Here he trained under local Inuit, learning how to travel and survive in harsh Arctic winter conditions. These lessons helped him later become the first to successfully travel to the South Pole. Since that time, a sizable community has grown in Gjoa Haven, which we were privileged to visit today.
