Roald Amundsen is perhaps best remembered for beating Captain Scott to the South Pole. Before the great adventure though he completed one of the most epic expeditions of modern history. Amundesen set out on 16 June 1903 for a three year mission to find a route through the Northwest passage and in the process measure the Magnetic North Pole. The Gjoa expedition, as it come to be called, was a resounding success.
Amundsen found a natural harbour on King William Island where they spent two years. In the course of their investigations they discovered and measured Magnetic North and remarkably determined that it does not stay in one place, but in fact moves. They spent the last winter of the expedition trapped in pack ice but finally made it to port (San Francisco) on 19 October 1906.
