Devon Island is located in the Territory of Nunavut in Arctic Canada. Lying to the south of Ellesmere Island and west of Baffin Bay, Devon Island is the largest uninhabited island on Earth. The coastal areas of the island have steep sea cliffs indented with valleys and fjords cut by the ice 10,000 to 8,000 years ago. A substantial ice cap covers the easternmost third of the island. The rest of Devon Island is barren and rocky with valleys and clusters of small lakes. Dundas Harbour, a short fjord bounded by steep mountains, lies on the south-east coast of Devon Island where you may encounter musk ox.
There are also extensive Thule remains along the coast - evidence that the area has been inhabited for centuries. Radstock Bay on the southern coast has an impressive archaeological site and is beside Caswell Towers, used as a polar bear observation point. Here we’ll also find one of the best Thule sites in the Arctic which gives us insight into how the pre-Inuit people survived and lived.
