In April 2020 you can camp at the North Pole, but that costs a ton ... A big bomb, therefore, but then you also have something! Travelers can spend the night in one of the ten heated domes at the North Pole next spring, so that they sleep under the starry sky. This way you know for sure that no one has more unique holiday stories than you.

Such a camping holiday costs around 95,000 euros per person, including two nights in Spitsbergen, flights and all logistics between there and the North Pole and an overnight stay at the North Pole in the igloo hotel. As a guest you also have access to a camp manager and an arctic wilderness guide. Nice and exclusive. A stay at North Pole Igloos can only be booked in April because it is safe to travel there in those months. According to Janne Honkanen, founder of Luxury Action, who offers high-end, customized travel experiences in Finland, Lapland and other Scandinavian countries, the igloos can also be placed on the glaciers of Spitsbergen - the archipelago halfway between Norway and the Arctic. When the igloo hotel is on the isolated Arctic tundra, such a cool vacation starts from € 48,000 ($ 52,792) per person for a three-night stay. The heated igloos have been tested in extreme arctic weather conditions and have their own bathroom. The glass roof and the glass wall ensure that the guests are one with nature and can experience the northern lights. "Depending on the weather, we move the heated glass igloos to the safest places around the Arctic glaciers," says Janne, who also exploits the five-star private wilderness Octola.

No worries, there are also plenty of nice other options for which you have to spend a little less change in your holiday pot. Stay for example in a glass iglo at the Arctic resort Kakslauttanen in Finland (northern lights!) Or the Jukkasjärvi Ice Hotel in Sweden, where everything is made of ice: beds, couches, ice bars.
