Travellers will soon be able to spend a night sleeping at the top of the world, literally. The North Pole is receiving its first glamping experience featuring helicopters & glass ceilings.

North Pole Igloos Hotel will open next year as the most northerly hotel in the world where travellers receive a unique stay surrounded by the region’s glaciers. However, it’ll only pop-up for a month.

While travellers are there, they can also try applying to be one of Santa’s elf, which BTW is actually an existing role.

North Pole Igloos Hotel has 10 heated domes that can be transported should weather conditions demand it.

Each pod has glass ceilings for incredible night sky views and en-suites equipped with personal toilets.

Luxury Action, the company behind the pop-up resort, said pods are “completely safe, [and] eco-friendly”.

“[They] pose no threat to the Arctic environment as everything that is taken there is brought back again.”

Of course, but pods have been tested to ensure they can withstand the harsh environment.

“North Pole Igloos hotel concept is movable and sustainable, but still a little extreme,” Luxury Action explained. “The igloos have been tested in extreme Arctic weather conditions and are heated.”

The experience begins in Svalbard, Norway where guests will spend two nights before taking a two-hour helicopter ride to the North Pole. Once on top of the world, travellers will spend a night at the resort.

You know the deposit you’ve saved up for a house? That!

The unique glamping experience will pop up in April next year and costs around £85,000, which equates to AU$154,000.

However, the cost comes with two nights in Svalbard, one night in the North Pole, flights to and from Svalbard and the North Pole, all meals, access to guides and more.
