North Pole Travel Guide

Although there is more than one definition “of the Pole of north”, most popularly allowed is geographical: a place fixes in the Scandinavian hemisphere at the axis of the ground of rotation, latitude 90°N (nonapplicable longitude). With the difference of the Pole of the south, which is located on the continent of the Antarctic, the Pole of the true north is covered per nothing but a sheet ice of shift on the surface of the Arctic Ocean. There is thus no permanent dwelling nor even an official marker for the position, because the ice moves year by year. Although it was in the past an evasive goal which took the lives of many explorers, thanks to modern aviation and any other technology, it is now the destination in commercial forwardings of voyage.

A somewhat arbitrary definition is the Scandinavian Pole of the inaccessibility, the most remote point of any littoral. It is a fixed place (except the principal changes of sea level which could redefine littorals) with 84°03' NR 174°51' W.

The ground of ice at the Pole of north tends to being rather flat, although some interesting formations of snow and ice can be found. There is only one sunrise prolonged and to lay down sun every year (which will not be during your visit). The organizers of voyages stick a post of sign in the ice, but it is semi-official and purely for photographic goals. In spite of their name, the polar polar bears do not dare usually this remote north (preferring the “coastal” parts Southerners of the Arctic hat of ice, with better occasions of swimming.
