Spend a cosy night in a fully-equipped igloo, complete with an extravagant three-course dinner and a skimobile tour

Mount Hotham will be hosting the first and only igloo village in Australia. The Igloo to Skidoo is a unique vacation stay offered by Alpine Nature Experience and includes an evening snowshoe adventure through the snow gums to reach a fully-sustainable eco-village and central tipi.

Guests will learn how to prepare an authentic French cheese fondue and indulge in a three-course dinner, followed by a cosy night’s sleep in a real snow Igloo. Alpine Nature Experience’s Igloos are all furnished with a proper bed, negative 8-degree sleeping bags and fur blankets.

For additional comfort, guests have the option of staying in a Snowdome. These eco-conceived structures are wood-heated and have a sky view. Watch the stars as you fall asleep wrapped up in fur blankets and wake up to the smell of fresh coffee and a cooked breakfast; classics like french toast, bacon and eggs are on the menu.

Igloo to Skidoo will conclude with a scenic skimobile tour to complete the one-of-a-kind night in the snow. Bookings are essential and the tour is open Wednesday to Sunday from June 15th to September 30th. Prices start at $269 AUD per person for the full experience, including snowshoes rental, guided tour, glass of mulled wine, 3-course dinner, overnight stay, breakfast and skidoo tour.
