Sam Ford Fiord

Sam Ford Fiord is a stunningly beautiful fiord located in the Qikiqtaaluk Region of Nunavut, Canada. It is situated along the eastern coast of Baffin Island, just to the south of the Arctic Circle. The fiord is approximately 50 kilometers in length and is surrounded by an impressive array of mountains, glaciers, and icefields.

The fiord was named after British explorer and Royal Navy officer, Sir Samuel Ford, who led the first expedition to traverse the fiord in 1822. The expedition was part of a larger mission to explore the coast of Baffin Island and map out potential trading routes. During his journey, Ford encountered the local Inuit people, who were friendly and hospitable.

The fiord is home to a variety of wildlife, including polar bears, seals, walruses, and whales. It is also a popular destination for fishing and kayaking. The fiord is also known for its spectacular scenery, which includes towering cliffs, spectacular waterfalls, and stunning glaciers.

The crew discovered the remains of a whaling vessel, the Isabella, which had been wrecked in the fiord in 1851. The remains of the Isabella are now a popular tourist attraction in the area.
