The North Pole is the northernmost point of the globe, and is the only point through which the imaginary line of 90 degrees North latitude passes. The Arctic also includes Greenland, the Svalbard Islands belonging to Norway, the country of Iceland, and the island of Novaya Zemlya which is part of Russia. The North Pole is inhabited by animals that live in cold weather, such as polar bears, polar wolves, arctic foxes, seals, and many others.
