Victory Point, Nunavut
Victory Point is located on the north coast of King William Island, in the Kitikmeot Region of Nunavat, Canada. The only community on the island is Gjoa Haven. The island is known for its large populations of caribou who summer there, before walking south over the sea ice in the autumn.

While searching for the Northwest Passage, a number of polar explorers visited, or spent their winters on, King William Island. These included John Ross, John Franklin’s 1845 expedition and explorer Roald Amundsen.
