A true adventurer always looks for ways to get to the wildest regions of the world, searching for unique and unbelievable experiences. Understanding this radical spirit, a Scandinavian luxury travel company will offer guests the opportunity to spend a few nights in one of the world's most hardest-to-reach places, the North Pole.
In April 2020, the company will open the Hotel Igloos pop-up, where guests will have the opportunity to spend a night in an igloo under the stars. However, such a unique experience will not cheap, as it will cost about $ 105,000 per person.
Unreachable for most of the year, the North Pole can be reached by helicopter in April and by ship during June and July. About 1,000 people visit the area each year, but they need to carry along extreme weather survival equipment and settle in uncomfortable tents. For luxury travellers, the company offers a slightly easier journey as they will arrive at the hotel by helicopter and will be greeted by ten heated igloos, each with a private bathroom equipped with state-of-the-art technology. In addition to the unique destination, guests will also be able to watch a spectacular light show, as Aurora Borealis is still highly active in April.
"The North Pole has been one of the most exclusive travel destinations in the world for years, but there are no pleasant and comfortable accommodation facilities there. I wanted to create a more comfortable way to experience the North Pole by bringing cozy facilities there,'' says Janne Honkanen, the CEO and founder of Luxury Action.
While the prices may seem outrageous, guests will receive a camp manager, arctic desert guide, chef services, and security guards. Besides, the price also includes a two-night stay in Svalbard, an archipelago between Norway and the North Pole, and commuting flights.
