Every year, at several alpine locations, fresh new Igloo Villages emerge from the snow to create an enchanting winter wonderland. At Iglu-Dorf, bars, restaurants and hotel-igloos are all exquisitely crafted using ice and snow, with international artists adding ice-sculptures and interior touches to create a truly magical finish. At Iglu-Dorf, you can watch the sun rise behind snow-capped mountains, hit the slopes for some exhilarating skiing, and later sip mulled wine at après ski before returning to your own private igloo.
Here’s why our Editor chose Iglu-Dorf as her ‘Pick of the Week’:
‘Iglu-Dorf is really cool, in every sense of the word. The chance to stay at a resort entirely made of snow is an inner-child dream for most of us, and Iglu-Dorf brings this fantasy to life. They even have a paradoxical heated igloo (just don’t ask me how they do it…) What makes this place extra-special is its impermanence – come the changing of the season, the glittering world of ice and snow melts away, allowing the fragile alpine environment to return to its natural state.’
