Grandvalira has become the first ski resort in the Pyrenees to build an igloo village. Set at 2350 metres altitude, the Iglu-Hotel Grandvalira is entirely made of snow.

The accommodation boasts nine igloos, some with private bathroom and hot tubs, and all individually decorated and equipped for extreme conditions. Additional leisure amenities include a bar, restaurant, terrace, and hot tub. The igloos offer panoramic views over the surrounding mountains.

Grandvalira is the sixth ski resort in Europe to have constructed an igloo village based on Swiss specialists Iglu-Dorf. The resort joins Engelberg, Gstaad, Zermatt, Davos-Klosters, and Zugspitze.

A stay at the Iglu-Hotel Grandvalira also offers guests the opportunity to try night snowshoeing and enjoy the first ski run of the day. Prices begin at €99 for a standard igloo, €166 for a romantic igloo, €199 for a romantic plus igloo (private bathrooms), and €309 for a romantic suite igloo (private bathrooms and hot tubs).

The temperature of the Iglu-Hotel is around 0 degrees centigrade so guests need to come fully prepared and bring warm snow clothing, comfortable warm shoes, gloves, sunglasses, a torch, and a towel and swimsuit for the hot tub. The accommodation also does not accept credit cards so remember to bring cash.
