Booking start Igloo Villages

15 July 2019

Even though the Igloo season is still a long way off, live capacity checks and online-bookings are already possible from now on. Weekends are usually very popular, so our hot tip is to book now for the coldest night of the year.  Or better: for the coolest night of the year. Because thanks to our expedition sleeping bags, it's not cold at all in the igloo rooms.

Igloos in summer?

9. July 2019

Heat, ice and sunshine. What a summer dream, the temperatures spread 100% holiday feelings. Who thinks of igloos? We, of course. Our Igloo Villages still defy the sun and have not yet completely melted away. Unfortunately it is not possible to stay overnight at the moment. We will let you know in time when it starts again.

Canyoning instead of Igloo Night

1 July 2019

If you are looking for an adrenalin kick, a canyoning tour is just the thing for you. Our partner Outventure offers tours with different difficulty levels, bookable for two people or more. In a wetsuit you jump, slide and swim through the beautiful landscape of the gorge. Abseiling is also part of it. Everything you need, you get from us of course.
A good igloo adventure alternative for everyone who loves nature.

Igloo feeling in the living room

3 June 2019

Igloo feeling in the living room:  It's best to take a quick look at the video, immerse yourself in the igloo world and look forward to the coming winter.

What happens to the igloos in summer?

27 Mai 2019

Nothing on the one hand and a lot on the other. The snow slowly melts in the sun until not a single piece of the igloos can be seen anymore. Then everything begins to grow again and in some places even cows graze! The cycle of nature takes its course until it starts snowing again - and we jump for joy, because then we can start building the igloos again. But we have to be patient until November. ;-)

Setting operation Igloo Village Schilthorn

20 Mai 2019

The Igloo Village Schilthorn is closed after two years of smooth operation. The reason is that the "Skyline Snow Experience" project of the mountain railways cannot be realised in short to medium term due to approval problems. The Igloo Village was planned as an integral part of this snow-area and cannot generate a sufficiently high frequency without it and its slightly decentral location. We regret this decision very much, we will miss the already loyal guests, the good cooperation with the cable cars and all employees as well as the unique location. We are looking forward to create and operate Igloo Villages in Davos-Klosters, Gstaad, Stockhorn, Zermatt, Kühtai in Austria and on the Zugspitze in Germany in the coming winter season.

Iglounge - Igloo feeling in summer

13 Mai 2019

If you feel like igloo feelings in hot summer, the Iglounge is just the thing for you. An inflatable igloo tent that can accommodate up to 150 people. It is very easy to set up in almost any location. For club occasions, birthdays, anniversaries - there are no limits to the ideas! Please send inquiries to info@iglu-dorf.com.

Thank you for a great igloo season

6 Mai 2019

This Sunday the Igloo Village Schilthorn was happy about its last visitors. Now we say goodbye to the well-deserved summer break. We had a fantastic winter and that thanks to all the overnight guests and day visitors. If you didn't all exist, our work wouldn't make sense. Thank you very much! We wish everyone a super beautiful summer and say goodbye again soon in winter.

Telemark only

29 April 2019

Last Igloo Weekend on the Schilthorn
 
Telemark Only is from Wednesday, May 1 to Sunday, May 5 at the Schilthorn. The slopes open for the last time this season - and only for Telemark enthusiasts. Of course, the igloo bar must not be missed at this event: From Friday to Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., there will be cool drinks and hot music. The igloo village is within easy walking distance even without skis. A great spectacle even for non telemarkers.

Heart-safe igloos

24 April 2019

Did you know that every Igloo Village is equipped with a ZOLL AED Plus Defibrillator? In this way, first aiders can professionally resuscitate in case of emergencies on the spot until the rescue service arrives. This significantly increases the chances of survival. Thankfully, the defibrillators have never been needed so far. And of course we hope this stays that way!

Iglu House Party

15 April 2019

Good Friday, 19 April the igloo will be heated up again. From 12:30 - 16:00 DJ About Clint and DJ Jan Penarrubia will be playing at the Igloo House Party. The Igloo Village of Schilthorn can be reached on skis, snowboard or on foot. Let's fetz!

Last chance for a bed in the snow

In the Igloo Village of Zermatt there are still a few places for the unbeatable combination of winter and spring feeling. On the following dates: Thurs. 18.4., Fr. 19.4., Sa. 20.4. and So. 21.4. So why not spontaneously book a cool igloo night for Easter week? There's still enough snow. But after Easter the igloo village closes and slowly but surely melts towards summer...

Behind the scenes of the Igloo Office

1 April 2019

Sophia or a colleague of the igloo team answers the calls of the service hotline with a happy smile. For over six years now, Sophia has been answering all your questions about the Igloo Villages. The most frequently asked questions are probably: "Is it cold there?" and "Are there showers?" Both can be answered with a lauching "no".

HINTS FOR A PERFECT IGLOO-NIGHT

25 March 2019

Actually, an igloo night is always perfect and guests can be happy that the igloos are still open until at least 6 April, Zermatt event until 21st April. To make the night even more perfect, we recommend - from experience - that all snow enthusiasts pack two pairs of socks and a second cap in case a sock gets wet or a cap falls into the whirlpool. And another thing: don't forget the sun cream in spring for the "bath" in the deck chair!

SNOWFEELING UNTIL APRIL

22 March 2019

All igloo villages are situated at over 2000 metres above sea level, in the midst of beautiful snow-covered ski resorts in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The experience is topped off with a mountain panorama that makes you speachless.

Do you fancy a nocturnal mountain adventure? Then this is for you: An extra trip will take you from Mürren to Birg station below the Schilthorn. There you will be equipped with headlamps and the adventure Thrill Walk begins. The Thrill Walk is a 200-meter-long steel structure that hugs the vertical walls of the imposing rock massif.

Igloo opening hours: Saturday & Sunday 11a.m. - 4p.m.

Celebrate Valentine's Day in the igloo!

1st of February 2019

Nowhere are there nights with more romantic feelings than in an Igloo Village in the middle of the mountains. Therefore, on February 14, escape everyday life and spend unforgettable moments in the igloo. Together you can hear the snow crackle under your feet, bubble in the 38-degree warm whirlpool water, look at countless stars in the night sky and cuddle in the romantic two-pack sleeping bag. There are still some free igloo rooms in Switzerland and Austria, but the igloo village on the Zugspitze is already fully booked on 14 February.

Back to the roots: The Love Nest - building an igloo by yourself

18th February 2019

How is an igloo built to be comfortable and safe? Exactly this question answers the Igloo Village offer: Love Nest. With professional support, guests have the opportunity to build their own, romantic igloo. Snow block on snow block arises the igloo accommodation for an unforgettable night. Even as a team event, building igloos is a great and sustainable experience.

Craft and thrill in the igloo villages

25th January 2019

Each Igloo Village offers an extra snow experience, especially for groups. In Davos you become a snow artist, in Gstaad a snow blower and in Zermatt and in Kühtai an igloo builder. At the Schilthorn, the Evening Thrillwalk offers pure thrills, while the Stockhorn organises winter games and the Zugspitze igloo championships.
All experiences have one thing in common: unforgettable moments in the snow.

Unforgettable igloo evenings – even without overnight stay

21January 2019

The igloo villages on Stockhorn and Schilthorn offer „igloo luck“ even without overnight accommodation. The bar and restaurant are not only open to visitors during the day, but also on special dates in the evening.

Igloo in Inferno fever

18 January 2019

When it comes to the end of January, at the "Schilthorn" regularly the "inferno" fever takes over. The Inferno race is held since 1928 and is considered the largest amateur ski race in the world. Because of its popularity, the number of participants had to be limited to 1,850! The start is below the Schilthorn at 2790 meters above sea level, the destination is in Lauterbrunnen at 800 meters. Good skiers need about 3/4 hours for the beautiful descent, the winners can do it in less than 15 minutes. This year's race will take place on January 26th. The folk festival around the Inferno begins on January 23rd. And the Igloo Village is right in the middle of it, providing socializing and culinary delights with the best views on the race and a perfect mountain panorama.

New in our family: the Igloo Village Kühtai

14 January 2019

For the first time we run an Igloo-Village in Austria this winter. Exactly in Kühtai near Innsbruck. We are happy that Joris Vermeulen keeps all threads in hand. Already last winter he worked in an Igloo-Village and is therefore no longer a "whitehorn". Wonderfully playful and cuddly, the Schneehotel presents itself to the guests with the art theme "Art Nouveau".

An island paradise - from Greenland to the dream island

11 January 2019

Not quite as big as Greenland – the largest island in the world, is the Igloo Village Davos Klosters, but also made entirely of ice and snow. A big walrus appears next to the ice bar, wales frolic on the walls and birds fly high in the snow sky. Other islands, such as Japan, Crete or Madagascar, are represented in the art theme as well. One thing is certain: The Igloo Village is varied and colorful with this art theme - even if snow is actually only white.

Six times open house

4 January 2019

In January, six of the Igloo Villages open their doors and offer a peek behind the scenes for a whole day. Davos Klosters starts on the 5th of January, followed by the Stockhorn on 6th, then Kuhtai on 12th, Gstaad and the Schilthorn on 13th of January. The final is Zermatt on 19 January. Everywhere a small program is offered and usually there is also a drink on the igloo house.

On 6th of January, the annual igloo hockey tournament will take place in Gstaad.

 

2019

2 January 2019

Happy New Year to all of you. Hope to see you soon in the Igloo!

World champion in igloo construction

28 December 2018

Did you know that since 2016 we are world record holder in building the largest snow igloo? For the 20th anniversary of the Igloo villages, we have taken up the challenge and built the largest snow igloo in the world in Zermatt. In about 2000 hours, a team of 11 built 1387 snow blocks, each block weighing about 35 kilos. After 11 days the world record was achived. The igloo had a diameter of 12.9 meters. So far the record is unbroken and we are happy about the entry in the Guinness Book of Records

Sharp teeth on the Zugspitze

24 December 2018

Dezember 28th the Igloo-Village on the Zugspitze will open its snow doors. This year's motto "World of the Seas" divides the Igloo-Village into an over- and underwater world. Here you are guarded by a large snow lighthouse and an origami ship invites you to dream while you cuddle together in the romantic igloo sleeping bag. Not quite so harmless presents the snow hotel entrance. A huge shark jumps out of the wall. Thankfully, his sharp teeth are made of ice and can not snap. In the restaurant, however, you must be careful that you do not fall into the clutches of a giant octopus. Fascination and adventure are guaranteed.

The motto in the Igloo Village Gstaad: "Let's go to old Rome!"

21 December 2018

How impressive the new art theme is realized is shown by the fact that part of the Igloo-Village in Gstaad will turn into the famous Coliseum of Rome. The plan is to make the restaurant visually multi-storey, so that the guests will have the feeling that are really in a snow coliseum. Throughout the hotel you will find Latin proverbs, e.g. matching the ice bar: "In Vino Veritas - In the wine lies the truth". There is no need for a trip to Rome anymore and we say now: All roads lead to Gstaad.

Opened: Wilderness in the Igloo-Village Zermatt

17 December 2018

This Friday the first guests had the joy to sleep in the Igloo-Village. The new managing director Daniel Wunderlin loves the adventure, not only in his new job as an igloo managing director in Zermatt, but also in his spare time. So it is probably not coincidental that the art theme in the Igloo-Village Zermatt this winter was chosen "Out in the Wild". To be fair, however, one has to say that the topic decision was made during Dan's absence. He was on a track in the wilds of Alaska and could not be reached.The fate was simply turned into a virtue and "Out in the Wild" chosen as the art theme. Much to the delight of all igloo guests who do not have to travel to Alaska to find themselves in the middle of the wilderness. And fortunately for young and old, the snow eagles will definitely not be dangerous.

Last minute Christmas present

14 December 2018

A coupon for an igloo night will definitely bring happyness under the Christmas tree. A hint, freeze the voucher in an ice block and hand it over with a small ice pick. This is definitely a lot of fun.
The voucher can easily be obtained by calling +41 41 612 27 28 or online.

New managing director in Zermatt

12 November 2018

Daniel Wunderlin now pulls all the strings in the Zermatt Snow Hotel. Already ten years ago he worked as a ski instructor and moved from Aargau to the beautiful mountains of Zermatt. In the Igloo Village Daniel started as an igloo guide, helped with the igloo construction and was also part of the world record team. In 2016, the largest igloo in the world was built on Rotenboden in 2000 hours out of 1387 snow blocks. Now it's time for Daniel Wunderlin to manage the entire snow hotel. Fortunately, a large part of the old team stays true to the igloo. "This will definitely be an exciting winter for me and for all our guests", laughs Danu and cannot wait to welcome the first visitors.

Igloo feeling for everyone

01 November 2018

At fixed public event dates, we offer fondue evenings in the Igloo-Villages for all snow enthusiasts. That means: you can enjoy the igloo feeling although you are not yet (quite!) ready for a whole night in the igloo. In the evening you take the gondola up to the Igloo, enjoy a delicious fondue and walk comfortably through the crackling snow back to the gondola to get down to the valley.

Marry all in white

25 October 2018

There is no better place for this wonderful experience than one of our igloo villages – with the bride and the snow chapel all in white. And the atmosphere is solemn in a very special way. Certainly not a classic way to marry (but classically everyone can). We look forward to accompanying you on this very special day.

Team building in the Igloo-Village

17 October 2018

Anyone who has built an igloo together as a group knows what a great experience this is. In the middle of nature - apart from the hustle and bustle - snow block is stacked upon snow block, until all at the end can proudly look at their self-built igloo. Another highlight of course: the night in your own igloo. This is guaranteed to be a team event that no one forgets.

Igloo fondue

12 October 2018

For our partner Intercheese cheese expertise comes first. Did you know that every igloo fondue is individually mixed with the cheese of the region? That makes not only a delicious fondue, but also emphasizes sustainable action by focusing on regionaliy. We are definitely glad having such a competent and experienced partner at our side.
