Overview

About Iglu-Dorf Engelberg

Engelberg Igloo Hotel. An Igloo world in white !!!

Facebook

Adrian Günter built his first igloo in 1996, to better enjoy the mountain and first powder snow of the day. Following an avalanche of interest from friends wanting to sample an igloo night, he increased the number of igloos and opened the "small world in white" in 2006, with 7 villages across Andorra, Switzerland and Germany now accepting guests.

Moving three thousand tons of snow every December to build each village, Adrian invites artists from all over the world to craft sculptures inside each village. With only an ice pick, motor saw and shovel, artists produce seals, arctic wolves, polar bears and whales as well as swirling designs and patterns illuminated by candle light to look over the guests from the walls.

The villages are open from Christmas day through to the beginning of April each year, snow conditions permitting. With 10,000 visitors in 2010, all ages have enjoyed the cosy hospitality of an expedition sleeping bag and sheepskin rug, from the youngest 19mth old baby to an 83 year old lady guest.

I can recommend everybody to stay one night of your life in an igloo. It is amazing how peaceful the mountains can be at night and the stars seam sudenly so close. The whirlpool is awsome and the sleeping bag you get warm and cozy. I am sure you are going to love it.

This place is amazing. I went there with my fiance just after we got engaged and we spent midnight on New Year's Eve in our own private hot tub looking up at the stars. Brush up on your German before you go though!

What a cool idea. My son loves to snowboard. I have an idea though. There was a guest that said she didn't sleep too good, have you tried air mattresses under the sleeping bags. Wishing you much success.

I stayed in Engelberg, which was really easy to get to. Train from Zurich airport to Lucern, changing trains onto the rack and pinion railway to Engelberg. All the details were on the (typically efficient) Swiss railways website. Total of about 2 hrs easy transfer from the airport raiway station to the cable car. LOVED the igloo and snowshoe walk. Jacuzzi in the snow was great fun. Good hosts - thanks Geraldine and team!

Just awesome, but sure looks cold >>UHOTW reply<< It is about minus 4 celcius inside the igloo (i.e much warmer than outside), and is very warm inside the provided sleeping bag. Best of all is to sit in the jacuzzi, them run through the snow in your towel to the hot sauna room. You feel really warm then getting into your private igloo suite!
