Arctic Circle Map

The Arctic Circle is the imaginary line located at 66°, 30’N latitude and marks the southernmost boundary of the Arctic region.

The Arctic's ice holds about ten percent of the world's fresh water. This vast, shimmering expanse of ice not only creates breathtaking landscapes but also acts as a massive reflector, bouncing sunlight back into space and helping to maintain the region's cool temperatures.

The Arctic region has an intricate ecosystem where life thrives in extreme conditions. This dynamic environment boasts a diverse food web, supporting various species specially adapted to the cold.

It's no wonder the Arctic is one of Earth's most biologically productive regions, providing habitat for abundant fisheries and hosting vast numbers of migratory birds during the summer breeding season.

What countries are in the Arctic region

Norway, Sweden,  Greenland,  Finland,  Iceland,  Russia, the USA (Alaska) and Canada are the eight countries that lie either wholly or partly within the Arctic Circle
