Day 11

Welcome to the Northernmost Permanently Inhabited Place in the World!

After walking 1221.75 km today, we have just reached Alert, Nunavut – being the northernmost inhabited place in the world, this means we’ve got no where to go now but south! Did you know – Alert was named after the HMS Alert, a British ship  that reached Ellesmere Island in 1875, and whose crew were the first recorded Europeans to reach the northern end of the island (where Alert is located).

Be sure to record your walking times today, and share any photos or stories about your walks using #WalkTheWorldSO on social media!
