So you’ve mastered the art of snowman building… in Formigal you can learn to build an igloo and work the snow like a pro!

An igloo or snow house is a shelter built with blocks of snow to form, in general, a dome. This type of construction is associated with the Eskimos; hunters used them as temporary shelters during the winter. They are not difficult to build and are very economical, making them a useful housing alternative for the inhabitants of the tundra.

If you want, you can also spend the night in the igloo you have built – a unique Pyrenean experience! And everything is provided to ensure that you get a good night’s sleep.
