The Thorndike Peaks are a mountain range located south of the entrance to Makinson Inlet, on the east coast of Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada. They are part of the Arctic Cordillera and are virtually unexplored.[1] There are no trees or wildlife in the Thorndike Peaks because the mountains are north of the Arctic tree line and because of the harsh cold climate.
