The North Pole sits on a floating ice sheet which is called the Arctic ice sheet. There is no land underneath it, but the sea depth at the North Pole has been measured at 4,261 metres (13,980 ft). Because of this, the North Pole is incapable of supporting any plant or animal life on it.

There is no specific land. The north pole is just a geographic location.There are ice sheets that cover the north pole. These ice sheets are thick enough to be walked on. There are island that are close to the north pole but there is no land in the north pole.
