Staying at Iglu-Dorf was a present from our family, and I truly feel sorry for the unfortunate waste of money (I couldn't help but check out the rates after our stay, which made me feel sad for them). And it's not like we stayed in the lowest room category, we stayed at the "Romantic Suite" with private Jacuzzi (sounds exclusive,... More

My husband and I went there for the "Fondue Night". It's a trip up to Iglu-Dorf via train, followed by a brief walk (I believe ours was cut short due to the heavy snow and poor visibility). Once there, you are given a tour of the grounds. Amazing work! definitely worth a trip up there. You can stay there, as... More

1: If staying in an Iglu is on your bucket list I highly recommend doing so....at a different location! Everything about our stay At Iglu-Dorf Zermatt was unpleasant (with the exception of the views--which are wonderful all around zermatt). The iglu village itself was in poor repair--chipping paint. crates with trash and empty beer bottles lying around in the snow,... More

Stayed with our 3 adult children. Was an experience but not sure it was worth it. Very cold even though we had all the right gear. Outdoor spa before bed was an amazing experience though. The sleeping bags were fantastic and kept you warm overnight - it was just getting in and out of them that was the problem and... More

Coldest weekend of the winter... -30C outside, but clear sky, unbelievable views of the Matterhorn, beautiful dark night with the stars.... scenery and weather could not be beaten... but, the place is highly overprice, having bad fondue in Switzerland is a crime... would we come back? no. Did I regret? no. Experience could not be beaten... but is way overpriced!... More

Having visited Zermatt several times over the last 8 years I have seen the Iglu-dorf grow from its infancy to what it is today. I've stopped several times to enjoy the fantastic white Gluwein they do there. This year I wanted to tick staying in an igloo off my bucket list. All I can say was I wasn't disappointed. The... More

My friend and I loved the idea of fondue in an igloo. Its certainly an experience, but definitely not worth the money. We spent 87 francs EACH on the evening and frankly thats a shocking amount for what you get. Ok, the experience was certainly interesting (its a very big igloo and we enjoyed seeing round it), but the fondue... More

We had enjoyed the bar at the Iglu during our ski runs in the Gornergrat area of the Matterhorn ski resort and learned that they had a fondue night on Thursday (starts in January) where you can take the train up just for the evening and come back down--not spend the night.
