Let the experts be our teachers. How do you build a proper Igloo? In this workshop we build real Igloos using design and knowledge of the Inuits. After a short snowshoe trek through the fairytale winter landscape we arrive at the location where we will build our house of snow. Stamping snow, cutting cubes, those blocks will be the elements for your igloo. Once completed it’ll be your housing for the night! There’s a block house with amenities needed as well – the choice is yours.
