Boothia Peninsula and Larsen Sound, Canada

Boothia Peninsula is a large peninsula in Nunavut's northern Canadian Arctic, south of Somerset Island. Larsen Sound is located west of Boothia Peninsula.

The peninsula was named by the Scottish explorer John Ross in 1829 after Felix Booth, the patron of Ross's second expedition. Ross encountered a large Inuit community whom he described as living in "snow cottages" (i.e. igloos).
