I always thought that 90°N was the geographic north pole. This would make more sense, as the magnetic pole is constantly shifting, but I'm not feeling I'm educated enough on the matter to make such a change. -(WT-en) Neil 22:04, 11 Aug 2005 (EDT)

I love the "Get out" section. : Most visitors to the North Pole head south. 66.57.218.7 14:22, 4 June 2009 (EDT)

Alternative banner for this article?[edit]

Banner currently used in this article
Suggested new alternative banner

I created a new alternative banner for this article (I initially created it first and foremost so that it would be used at the top of the parallel article in the Hebrew edition of Wikivoyage, yet I later decided to also suggest that the English Wikivoyage community would consider using it here as well). So, which banner do you prefer having at the top of this article? ויקיג'אנקי (talk) 04:27, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

I thought polar bears didn't actually live that far north. Is that incorrect? Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:42, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
I agree with Ikan, I think they don't. Can the newly suggested banner be used for Islands of the Arctic Ocean instead? I just noticed that the North Pole banner is used for that article, as well, for some reason. Danapit (talk) 12:01, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
According to this credible source, they do live in the north, though unclear whether as far north as the North Pole (which isn't on continental land). Either way, I'd agree with Danapit about keeping the original and using the new banner on the islands article. James Atalk 12:55, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
I agree with this idea, too. Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:20, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Bears so up north is suspicious. On the other hand, I don't think we should start using old maps of destinations, especially if this old map is not in a library of the destination. Current but hoping for a better one, I will take one next time I go haha Syced (talk) 07:53, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Joke[edit]

Is this a joke article? --Jd52102 (talk) 21:37, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Does it look like one to you? Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:06, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
I've backed off slightly on the Santa silliness, as we have Santa Claus and North Pole (disambiguation) now to list Santa's Village theme parks in various southern towns. We don't need to link Bracebridge and the like here as they're in the Santa Claus or Christmas and New Year travel articles. They're also nowhere near the Pole.

Polarflug[edit]

I removed this listing because it looks like these tours have now ended. If anyone wants to check in future then details below Andrewssi2 (talk) 10:12, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Deutsche Polarflug. North Pole sightseeing flights, starting in May 2007, 11-hour sightseeing flights departing from Germany in an Airbus 330, cruising over Norway and Svalbard, riding low over special sights, and getting all the way up to the North Pole. Most passengers switch during the flight between center-section seats to pairs of outer-section seats, giving everyone in this class a window or next-to-window seat for half of the flight; a small number of tickets are center-section or outer-section only. Informative in-flight programming. €555–1190 economy, call for first-class.
