The Osborn Range is a small mountain range located on the northwest flank of Tanquary Fiord on north-central Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada. It lies just outside Quttinirpaaq National Park and is one of the northernmost mountain ranges in the world forming part of the Arctic Cordillera.[1]

The only named summit in the Osborn Range is Mount Townsend 1,235 m (4,052 ft) at the southwest edge of the Osborn Range near McKinley Bay, formed by the Chapman Glacier.

A well-known glacier called Gull Glacier lies in the Conger Range.
