The Gjoa was the small, wooden-hulled sailing vessel used by Roald Amundsen and a small crew, for the first complete traverse of the Northwest Passage.

The expedition was frozen in for three winters during the voyage. Gjoa Haven, one of the places the expedition over-wintered, is now named after the vessel.
