Alert, Nunavut

Alert, about 500 miles from the North Pole, is said to be the most northerly permanent human settlement in the world. It gets continuous sunlight from late spring to mid-summer. Snow covers Alert pretty much year-round and average temperatures are usually below freezing. The Canadian government uses Alert as a military base, restricting access to personnel.
