Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance beginning in North Pole. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- North Pole) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for North Pole. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from North Pole

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in North Pole. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 64.7514, Longitude: -147.3319     [Map].
