Waking up to clear blue skies, icy breaths of wind and sunshine that has not left the sky since early April, when it rose for the first time this year. You wonder for a brief moment where you are and then are hit with the memories of yesterday. The helicopter drop-off, strapping on your skies, attaching your sledge to your back, and setting off on the adventure of a life time.
And here you are now, at the North Pole. On top of the world, both literally and emotionally. You recall making a call home on the satellite phone when you reached 90 degrees North – telling your family that you made it, the pride in their voices.
You pull on some clothes, venture outside the tent, gaze in wonder at your surroundings and marvel that you are one of very few who have ever made it to this remote corner of the Earth. The snow is glistening in the sunlight and there is total silence. Soon, this will be punctuated the purring sound of the helicopter returning to collect you all and fly you back to base camp, where a traditional celebratory feast of Champagne and caviar awaits you.
With this imagery strong in your mind, if I asked you to imagine that you are on a stag weekend, I assume you would be shocked.
This is a stag weekend with a difference. Designed for the discerning groom-to-be, who wants to celebrate his impending nuptials with an unforgettable experience, and is not interested in the generic stag weekend to Las Vegas or a European destination.
The cherry on this delicious cake of a trip is that there has never been a stag weekend at the North Pole before. The first party to book up will have the opportunity to make history as the first stag group ever to visit this stunning part of the world.
Naturally, a trip of this exclusive and luxurious nature doesn’t come cheaply. At a cost of £14,999 per person, excluding flights to Longyearbyen, this trip is certainly the most expensive stag weekend in the world. However, we are sure that it will be worth every penny when you are standing triumphantly at the North Pole, secure in the knowledge that you have gone where no stag has gone before.
