Mount Thor, officially gazetted as Thor Peak is a mountain with an elevation of 1,675 m located in Auyuittuq National Park, on Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada.
This mountain consists of solid granite. The rock making up this mountain has been metamorphosed multiple times throughout the earth’s history, causing this granitic layer to be pushed through other layers. The age of the rock ranges from 570 million years to 3.5 billion years (Pre-Cambrian), making it some of the oldest rocks on earth.
Despite its remoteness, this feature makes the mountain a popular rock-climbing site. Camping is allowed, with several designated campsites located throughout the length of Akshayuk Pass. For climbers looking to scale Mount Thor, there is an established campsite a few kilometers north of its base, complete with windbreaks and emergency shelters.
