Igloo village Zermatt
The glittering Igloo Village is located in the ski region between Riffelberg and Gornergrat. It offers a 360-degree view of 29 peaks – including the Matterhorn – towering 4000 metres above you. A piping hot fondue tastes even better against this backdrop − whether you are with your soulmate, family or simply with good friends.
In addition to overnight accommodation in the igloo at 2727 m above sea level, the igloo village is an ideal stop for lunch or an après-ski stop on the large sun terrace.
A lunch fondue in the Igloo Village is the ideal excursion destination for nature lovers and culinary connoisseurs. After an impressive ride on the Gornergrat Railway, you will reach the Igloo Village with a 10-minute hike from Rotenboden.

Between February and April, the Gornergrat Railway takes you daily to Rotenboden for lunch fondue in the igloo village. After visiting the Gornergrat you return to Rotenboden by train. Then a 10-15 minute walk takes you to the igloo village. There awaits you the legendary igloo fondue with a hot drink at the outdoor bar. After visiting the igloo village you will return on foot to Rotenboden and the Gornergrat Raiway takes you back to Zermatt.
Après-Ski Tip: Sun loungers with a view of the Matterhorn
After the lunch fondue, you can enjoy a view of the Matterhorn from a reclining sunlounger and bask in the sun with a refreshing drink. We also recommend a tour of the Igloo Village, including the Igloo Bar, Igloo Restaurant and Igloo Hotel.
