We usually look at the world globe with the Ecuador line in front of our eyes. In the same way, we use to represent the maps in two dimensions. But if what you want is to take a journey all around the world more or less through the
arctic cercle line
, and having as a reference the North Pole, there is a much more interesting perspective:

Pol nord, 1746-1747

Map by William Moor and Francis Smith, 1746-1747

Pol nord, 1882-83

Mapa of the international polar stations, 1882-83

 

Pol nord, actualment

The North Pole nowadays, with red line that indicates the 10°C (50°F) isotherm in July, sometimes used to define the Arctic region border
