Best places to stay:

There are two things that make the Iglu-Dorf stand out among Zermatt’s many hotels. Firstly, the views – guests are treated to front-seat views of the Matterhorn as it turns pink and orange in the setting sun. Secondly, the sense of adventure. Located at 2,700m, just off the Riffelhorn piste on the Gornergrat sector, the igloo village is accessed by foot via a snowy path, or by skis via the slopes.

The igloos are basic but fun, and there’s a dining igloo for supper (meats, cheeses and fondue). It’s best for families with older children – rather like camping, with a wintery feel.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...
