Boothia Peninsula - Canada, Nunavut Highlights:
Northernmost point of mainland North America
Boothia Peninsula (formerly Boothia Felix) is a large peninsula in the Canadian Arctic, south across the Bellot Strait from Somerset Island. It is the northernmost point of mainland Canada, and thus, the northernmost point of mainland North America. It includes Cape Murchison. The peninsula was named by the Scottish explorer John Ross in 1829 after Felix Booth, the patron of Ross' second expedition. You may see caribou, whales and seals that have brought the Inuit to this region for hundreds of years. In fact Ross encountered a large Inuit community whom he described as living in "snow cottages" igloos and immortalized in the painting North Hendon. The north magnetic pole was at one point located here by Ross.
