The North Pole is not the most hospitable place on the planet, but that isn’t stopping Luxury Action, a private travel company, from wanting you to take your next vacation there. The company has unveiled plans to create the northernmost hotel in the world out of a series of movable, heated glass igloos.

The igloos have been tested in extreme arctic weather conditions and all contain their own toilet, bed, and a glass ceiling and wall to connect with the surrounding landscape and experience the Northern Lights. Guests would arrive at the North Pole Igloo Hotel ( which includes a camp manager, an arctic wilderness guide, a chef, and security) via helicopter.

The peripatetic igloos would only be located at the North Pole on request in April, the only month suitable for guests to safely travel to the location. For the other 11 months, the igloos would be moved to a glacier in Svalbard, an archipelago between mainland Norway and the North Pole.
