Earth actually has two north and two south poles.
The geographic North and South Poles are the northern and southern points of Earth’s axis. The magnetic north and south poles mark the strongest points of Earth’s magnetic field.
While near each other, the two northern poles and the two southern poles are in different spots.
Finding the Poles. Many explorers tried—and failed—to find the exact location of the geographic North and South Poles. Weather conditions at the poles made the discovery difficult.
The North Pole is located in the Arctic Ocean, making it especially hard to find amid the shifting ice and crevasses. Robert Peary and Matthew Henson finally reached it in 1909.
In 1911, Roald A. Amundsen found the South Pole on the frozen continent of Antarctica.
