Igloo Åre offers a unique and unusual accommodation experience and is located up on the mountain edge. Offering breathtaking views of the entire valley lies the Igloo Åre, among birches, grouse and metres-deep snow. Deeply embedded and perfectly adapted to the demands of nature and the opportunities we have, where the tree line starts and birch forest ends. A bit of shelter from the wind, but the sun due south.
Every year in November and December, we build up this years igloo construction, for accommodation, dinner and weddings. This means that every winter is different. The design, placement, artistic decoration and sizes designed for snow conditions.
We are Katarina Lidberg Hising and Håkan Hising and our corporation is named Igloo Experience AB. Welcome to us!
IGLOO ÅRE RESTAURANT
We, at Igloo Åre, love food of all kinds, but mainly with fresh ingredients. Therefore, we try wherever possible to find local produce from the region. We can almost always offer the news in a mixture of local specialties from local suppliers.
At almost 1,000 meters above sea level, in one of Scandinavia's harshest climates, we placed two spa from Viskan Spa, with room for 14 people (7 each). Here you can enjoy the starlit sky, or minor storm when you are protected in the warm water.
WHERE IS IGLOO ARE?
Igloo Åre is located in Åre ski resort in the middle of Sweden. You have to take a ski lift (VM 8, the gondola) to reach us on the mountain. It takes about 7 minutes from the valley station of Åre village and you can go with or without skis. Our facility is located approximately 300 meters from the mountain station, at the World Cup Plateau (VM-platån).
WE WHO RUN IGLOO ÅRE
Igloo Åre was a topic of discussion at the dinner table with us a long time. Winter 2012, we decided to look closely at what you could do with snow and ice, and where we could build something that became a tourist attraction.
Now we had to find the right place. Beautiful view, good local services, good communications and a high and snow-sure location was basic requirements. After some searching, we found the place up at the VM: 8-gondola in the Åre ski systems. In spring 2012, we built a smaller edition of Igloo Åre, with the help of friends and partners. Now, some years later, the business has grown and we are working hard to create an exciting activity wich our guests will never forget.
