A luxury pop-up hotel is offering guests the chance to sleep under the stars in the North Pole — if they're willing to part with $100,000.

Would-be guests can reserve a stay at the North Pole Igloos — which will be the northernmost hotel in the world — throughout April 2020, the only month in the year when it's safe to travel to the region.

A stay at the igloos starts at 95,000 euros ($105,055), which includes two nights in the Norwegian islands of Svalbard and one night in the North Pole. Flights between Svalbard and the North Pole are included, as well as meals, security and travel guides.

The camp itself is comprised of heated glass igloos, which have been tested in extreme Arctic weather conditions and will be moved around the area as the weather changes. Transparent ceilings and walls allow visitors "to be one with the nature and experience the Northern Lights," according to the hotel operators.

The resort is operated by Luxury Action, which runs a string of five star retreats in the Arctic. Its founder and CEO, Janne Honkanen, told CNBC the company worked to offer sustainable vacations that raise awareness around the impact of climate change.

"The North Pole is one of the most exclusive travel destinations on Earth," he said. "All our guests (are concerned about) Arctic nature and the climate crisis. I believe they are also the best messengers to spread word of how climate change affects our lives in the Arctic and its effects on Arctic animals and nature."

The North Pole Igloos is set to become the latest competitor in the increasingly crowded industry of unconventional hotels.
