This map of the Arctic ( the area within the Arctic Circle ) looks straight down on the North Pole. The pole is in the middle of the Arctic Ocean - an ocean basin about 5 kilometres (two miles) deep.

Problem is... it only
works in one spot!

The ice cap remains frozen all year long, so even though the North Pole is in the middle of the ocean, people can still go there by travelling across the ice.

It was hoped that the Northwest Passage would be a short way from Europe to the Far East. It turned out to be not very useful - although there is no land to block the way, the permanent ice-cap and the icebergs and ice floes that fill the water make it too hard for ships to get through.
