Iglu Village

Snow-art: Check out one of these igloo hotels!

By | Switzerland | No Comments

There are many different options for fun overnight stays during a skiing trip. However, I bet you have never seen something like this before! IGLU-DORF.com are igloo villages in Switzerland (Zermatt, Gstaad, Engelberg, Davos-Klosters) and Germany (Zugspitze) built from snow with beautiful snow carvings and ice sculptures. It’s purely fascinating how the team – within three weeks – has built rather a hotel than an igloo out of snow.

Even if you do not plan to stay overnight, have a look at one of these places and get yourself a drink or a fun cheese fondue dinner. It is a special and very uncommon thing to see!

This artful place has 9 bedrooms of different sizes and a fun bar and restaurant area. For those who are afraid of the cold nights, you can even book a hot igloo or jump in the hot jacuzzi. Last but not least.. believe it or not you can even have the whitest wedding ever, in the snow church.

Verzasca Valley: Most famous bungee jump

007 Bungee Jump

We had no idea, what we would run into, when we decided to take a day trip to Versazca Valley in Switzerland. The Valley is a beautiful remote valley along a turquoise river, where people and kids enjoy themselves. Driving towards the top of the valley, we came by an incredible and breathtaking dam. I could not believe my eyes, when I saw a person jumping down the steep dam with a bungee rope.
It’s the most famous bungee spot, since James Bond jumped down the Versazca Dam in the opening scene of Golden Eye. It is said to be the highest bungee jump in the world with 7.5 seconds “free-flight” and 220 meter hight of the dam.

For the crazy ones, contact Trekking Team AG for an unforgettable adrenalin shot (and led me know what it felt like, since I was too afraid I might not get out of it alive!)
