 Thule Air Base


  Pituffik
Thule Air Base lies on a valley plain between to ridges called the North Mountain and the South Mountain. The plain slants gently towards the ocean where a habour has been constructed. The islands Saunders and Wolstenholme lies in the distance and further out you can get a glimpse of the small island Dalrymple Rock called  "Witch's Tit".

Close to the base the old settlement is placed at the foot of Mount Dundas proudly rising from the ocean. From here you can look into the fiord north of Thule. This is the only fiord in the world where three glaciers join forces and creates myriads of icebergs. At the innermost glacier the radar station BMEWS is placed.

Let's take a closer look at the base area...
