The Arctic is the northernmost part of Earth. It can be defined either as everything within the Arctic Circle, or all northern areas where temperature never rises above 10 degrees C. In the Arctic, the cold, snow blindness, and desolation are the main dangers. Cold weather is potentially lethal. In the Northern Hemisphere, several homeless people die from hypothermia every winter. The only way out of the Arctic is south.
