Went as a group of three (with a 7 year old), stayed in a 6-person igloo.
Nothing to see nor do at the so-called igloo-village. A cluster of interlinked igloo rooms, a bar and a custom built sauna and that's it. Some carvings on the walls to try to make this interesting but after half an hour, we were like "that's if??!. The igloos are built using giant balloons, machines, so nothing to marvel at really.
We are English speaking. The English briefing session lasted five minutes, while the Swiss-German briefing went on for 20 minutes (most of guests were local Swiss). We found out later from our Swiss room-mates that certain tips were not passed on/translated to us e.g. do some jumping jacks before you tuck yourself into the sleeping bags, so that the sleeping bags warm up faster.
And yes, concur with other reviewers. This is really cold, especially if you are a tourist from a tropics. I had lived a few years in the Europe previously, but still found it very cold.
Dinner was swiss fondue (with bread).
One of those experiences that sounds more interesting when you re-count it back to friends, family back home, than it actually is. As some others have said, will not do this again.
