Make the North Pole Your Vacation Spot
Even if I had the $25,000 to $30,000 to visit the North Pole, I would bow out.
Growing up in the Chicago area, I have had my fill of snow, ice, biting wind, and below-zero temperatures.
Now if you are a hardy soul, and have a lot of cash, then you can contact Quark Expeditions to fly you to the North Pole, or you can have them reserve you a spot on a nuclear icebreaker.
You can fly to the North Pole by way of helicopter. This trip is a four-day one that will allow you to spend one night at the Barneo ice camp. You can talk to the researchers at the camp and learn a thing or two. Your short trip by helicopter to the North Pole will be the highlight of your four-day adventure!
If you would prefer traveling to the North Pole aboard the nuclear icebreaker, 50 Years of Victory, it will take you two weeks to get to the North Pole, and sadly, you will only be spending one day at the North Pole. Maybe the folks aboard the 50 Years of Victory are a rowdy sort who like to party for a couple of weeks!
If I had $25,000 to $30,000 to blow on a vacation, I would pick a tropical clime.
