Want To Sleep In An Igloo – At The North Pole?
Well, the answer for anyone who suffers from “Wanderlust” is easy:
Yes, a company is opening an “Igloo Hotel” at the North Pole, where you can sleep under the northern lights, surrounding by snow and polar bears!
As Newser reported, it’s not cheap – $100,000 for up to five nights!
And The Washington Post reported:
“Called North Pole Igloos, it will allow travelers to sleep in one of 10 glass-ceilinged, heated domes and spend the day marching around in temperatures between minus 20 and minus 40 degrees. “It’s not for the fainthearted,” says a research scientist.”
Guests at the North Pole Igloos will stay in one of 10 heated, glass-walled igloos at night. It’s a travel experience so unique, it only takes place one month every year – but for who knows how long.
A Finnish luxury travel company is set to open a movable hotel at the North Pole that offers a rare and eco-conscious experience for the adventurous traveler who can swing the roughly $100,000 price tag for up to five nights’ stay. The North Pole Igloos are slated to welcome its first guests in 2020 and will operate yearly every April.
Janne Honkanen, who created Luxury Action—the company behind all this—admits it’s not for everyone. “We provide all of the equipment,” he tells CNN. “But you definitely need to have the spirit of an explorer or scientist.” Honkanen also hopes visitors will become “messengers” to the world about climate change. “I’m really worried about the climate crisis on the planet,” he says. “Because of climate change, we don’t know how many trips we can do up there. The North Pole is a glacier.”
