On Saturday, 9th February, the exhibition of the photographer Stephanie Beer will open in the igloo village Stockhorn. It presents large and small exhibits on the subject of architecture. The photos impressively capture the play with light and shadow. This exhibition complements the art theme "50 years Stockhornbahnen" in the igloo village. Guests can read excerpts from the old hut book and admire pictures of the transport of the Stockhornbahn and the old bow lift. The snow art is also under the motto "50 years Stockhornbahnen", as is e.g. the view from an old gondola on the winter landscape shown, with the original control panel incorporated into the snow. Igloo opening hours: Saturday & Sunday 11a.m. - 4p.m.

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.
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.
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. Thanks to advance reservation, guests can return to the valley as late as around 10:00 pm.
Even the Igloo Villages with hotel often offer late night fondues. In Gstaad, this experience can even be combined with a torchlight descent. For more information: Igloo Bar & Restaurant.

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.

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".
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.
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.

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

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

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.
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.

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.

Juhu, the first snow is here and we are already busy at work. Up to 2000 tons of snow are needed for each Igloo-Village. It is shoveled, milled and carved. Whether at minus 10 or minus 20 degrees, our teams are building at daytime and sometimes even at night, so that the snow hotels can open in time.
26 November 2018
Going to the mountains and New Year's Eve in the snow – every Igloo-Village offers a small but nice New Year's Eve program.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

During the annual Kick-Off meeting, the Igloo-Village crew was thrilled during caving organised by Outventure.
28 August 2018
Igloo-Village Engelberg is closing down. Unfortunately one season earlier than planned, the Igloo-Village Engelberg will not re-open again. Due to climate change with warmer days during winter and rain on the location of the igloo situated below 1,800 metres above sea level the closing had been foreseen for a while.
After a total of 13 winter seasons, Engelberg was one of the oldest destinations after Zermatt and Zugspitze. We have fond memories of Engelberg and thank everyone who helped and supported Igloo-Village Engelberg during its time!

What are you doing in summer at the Igloo Village?
Sure, the igloos have melted, it's warm – and we are enjoying it. This does not mean that a smaller team is not busy working in summer.
Above all, we are also working for our partner company Outventure: In Central Switzerland we offer the Engelberg rope park, 140 meter bungee jumping Engelberg, canyoning, yoga and corporate events "for everyone", "with thrills", "with team character" and "for gourmets". Get inspired!

One of the most common questions is whether we have igloos in the summer.
Yes we do, but not made out of snow but in the form of an inflatable event tent – this is the Iglounge. It can be used in summer as well as in winter, in rain and in sunshine, always and everywhere.
For further information and questions please contact our partner company Outventure AG on +41 41 611 14 41.
