I recently returned from a photo trip to both Barter Island in the Arctic Ocean and Katmai National Park, AK.  Kaktovik, is the village on Barter Island and is about 220 miles north of the Arctic Circle.  It has a population around 300.  We were in a 16 foot open boat for 16 hours over four days with an Alaskan native skipper and another guide.  This allowed us to take the polar bear photos very close to the level of the bears when they were in the ocean.  The runway elevation on Barter Island is 5 feet.  It is 113 miles north of Prudhoe Bay Deadhorse Airport, AK and is 1,257 miles from the North Pole.  There is no airport terminal on Barter Island.  We were picked up just off the runway in an old yellow former school bus.  There are no tourist items to purchase such as a T-shirt or baseball cap with Barter Island on it.   At Katmai we photographed brown bears.  The viewing season is from September through maybe the third week of October.  When if freezes the bears head north.  There were five boats with about five people on them.  Airfare from Anchorage to Barter Island is $1,000.00.  I am guessing only 1,000 people over the 7 weeks get to do this.  A day on Barter Island will easily cost over $1,000.00.
