info-winter Igloo Building

 
Is there anything nicer than trekking through snowbound landscapes and then building your own igloo in a secluded spot? Stay the night over in the midst of winter? Yes, of course! It is not as crazy as it sounds! Possible with the helping hands of our experts and their bag of tips.
 
Build an igloo without having to stay overnight? This too is possible. We build our igloos near our Suvorov alpine cabin. So, you have a choice: alpine cabin romance, dinner and enjoying your torch lit night cap, while gazing at the starry night. Then off to sleep in your own igloo – or would it rather be in the alpine cabin...

more Info


info-winter How can suitable accommodation be built from snow? Inuits are masters in the art of building igloos and we will show you how. After a short snow shoe trek through the magical and wild romantic winter landscape, we arrive at our building site. Our Specially trained Trekking Team guides will commence in the building. First of all a snow field has to be created, then, under supervision, separate snow blocks have to be precisely cut and stacked. Shortly afterwards your dwelling for the night is ready. 

But first of all we get together in our Suvorov alpine cabin – complete with additional infrastructure (running water, toilet facilities, etc.) – for a rustic Muotatal Alpine fondue dinner. This will more than warm you up for your overnight stay in your own igloo. A swig of white wine and hot wine punch as a night cap under the starry night and you will sleep like a log.

Should you prefer not to venture back out in to the cold? Just stay overnight indoors, and enjoy the following morning a hearty breakfast.
