Those whose taste runs to the exotic might be tempted to check out the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. The hotel already offers dog sled and snowmobile safaris but it will now sell space flights. Virgin Galactic will be offering trips from nearby Kiruna which is the northernmost city in Sweden. The trips should begin in 2012 and tourists can choose a summer trip in the ceaseless light of the midnight sun or a trip during the dark winter highlighted by the luminous aurora borealis. Tickets will likely cost around $200,000 for the trip.
