Booked your accommodation for Christmas and New Year yet? Ever thought of something a little different and close to the slopes? How about staying in an Igloo? With all the snow falling outside at the moment it might feel that you’re already surrounded by snow – but there are some “igloo villages” in Switzerland located on a number of ski slopes.
I’m sure many of you are familiar with having a drink at one of the Igloo bars at some of the ski resorts, like the one pictured below in Davos, but did you know that you can sleep in them too?
Certainly, for a unique and memorable experience in the mountains this is second to none. And don’t worry, you can even find some igloos that are heated too! The igloos are rebuilt every season from 3,000 tons of snow – but they are eco-friendly too – CO2 neutral and sustainable! The igloos themselves are beautifully designed, made up of glistening snow crystals and as well as a bar you can have a fondue dinner in some of them too!
The Igloo-Villages open up their snow-doors from 25th December and they are located in four areas in Switzerland – Davos/Klosters, Engelberg, Gstaad and Zermatt. The offer a variety of different type of accommodation and you can book overnights stays and even buy vouchers to give as presents. For more information.
