A Luxury Hotel Is Opening in the North Pole — and It Promises Breathtaking Views of the Northern Lights
If you’re a hardcore traveler you’re likely always looking for the next big thing. Be it the newest hotel, the most luxurious suite, or climbing the highest mountain, you’re down for it all. And that makes this new hotel, located in the North Pole, the perfect fit for you.
This winter, guests will have the unbelievable opportunity to stay in the northernmost hotel in the world known as the North Pole Igloo Hotel. However, it does come with two rather large catches. The first is that it will only be available for an extremely limited amount of time. The second being it will cost about $100,000 for a three-night trip.
But, that $100,000 certainly comes with a few perks.
“North Pole Igloos hotel concept is movable, sustainable, but still a little extreme,” the hotel explains on its site. “Depending of weather conditions we move the heated glass igloos to most safe places around the arctic glacier. You can join the group of very rare people who have spent a night at the North Pole’s glacier.”
It further notes, the hotel is only open on request in the month of April, however, guests can also stay at another location on other dates.
So, what do you get for the money? According to CNN, the hotel comes with a two-night stay in Slavbard before embarking on a two-hour helicopter ride to the North Pole ice camp. Guests are then transported to the glacier and to check into their igloo hotel.
"We provide all of the equipment," Janne Honkanen, founder of Luxury Action, the company behind igloo hotel, told CNN. "But you definitely need to have the spirit of an explorer or scientist."
As a little bit of an added to this journey, CNN noted, guests are “almost guaranteed” to get a great viewing of the Northern Lights as they are still incredibly active in the area throughout the month of April. If you’ve got the money to burn and the spirit to match book it now. And maybe bring us as a plus one.
