Hotel Opens at the North Pole
Today's elite super-spender luxury travellers increasingly seek exclusivity, unspoilt nature and sustainability. All of these criteria will be catered to at the North Pole Igloo Hotel, opening for one month only in April 2020.
Run by high-end Finnish travel brand Luxury Action, the hotel will be located on Arctic ice at the North Pole. It will comprise 10 heated dome tents with glass sides, enabling the guests to easily view the aurora borealis.
The glass igloos will feature en-suite bathrooms and the guests will have access to a team of wilderness guides, a chef and security.
The package, including a two-night stay in Svalbard in the Norwegian archipelago, helicopter flights to and from the camp at the North Pole, and one night's stay at the temporary camp with meals and experienced guides, will cost $105,000 per person.
For an additional charge, guests can stay for a few nights at the company's five-star hotel in Finnish Lapland and receive North Pole training prior to their trip.
The glamping site, which can be picked up and moved should conditions become unsafe, has a leave-no-trace policy and poses no harm to the Arctic environment.
