Visit Beechey Island National Historic Site

Pay your respects at one of the most notorious sites in the Arctic: Beechey Island. Learn about the famed site where the ill-fated Franklin Expedition overwintered from 1845–1846.

See the graves of three of Franklin’s men (along with one of a fourth man from a later Northwest Passage expedition) that are a haunting memorial to the heyday of European Arctic exploration.
