Luxury Action Pods

Well, this certainly gives a whole new meaning to the word luxury.

For those who dream of taking a trip beyond the wall (the one about to surround post-Brexit Britain) to experience the grandeur, wilderness, mystery and beauty of the North Pole, youre in luck, because new luxury pods are about to pop up right in the middle of the planet.

The only bad news is the price: they cost $105,000 (£83,959) per night to stay in. Advice: start saving.

Ten heated (thank god!) Igloo hotels will pop up for one month in April next year. All come fitted with glass dome roofs so you can watch the wonders of the Northern Lights from the comfort of the sack.

Janne Honkanen, founder and CEO of travel company Luxury Action, told CNN Travel: I wanted to create a more comfortable way to experience the North Pole as it is, by bringing cozy facilities to extreme conditions.”



At present, roughly only 1,000 brave the spine chilling -45 degree temperatures of the deep north. Under usual circumstances, trekkers would need to pack everything from a tent to the most advanced adventure kit on sale.

We provide all of the equipment, Honkanen says. But you definitely need to have the spirit of an explorer or scientist.

In addition to all the equipment, anyone who forks out the hefty price tag will be awarded the added luxuries of an en-suite bathroom, an-on site manager (just in case), a wilderness survival guide, chef and top notch security.

If you are remotely concerned for your safety, dont be. Honkanen knows the weather in the North Pole can turn very bad, and very quickly, and in anticipation has built his little luxe pods to be portable.

With threats such as climate change so drastically changing the face of the earth, his team hopes that those who do visit will be able to share with others just how we are all affecting global weather patterns.

Were not just providing the experience, we want to spread the word on whats happening: How the climate crisis affects local culture, local food and the Arctic animals, Honkanen says. Its transformative travel.

So what are you getting for your money? Aside from the experience of a lifetime, the super expensive package includes a two-night stay in Svalbard, Norway before you head up to the pole.
