In the afternoon I return to the Snow Village. A campfire was lit on the square in front of the main igloo and comfortable chairs were set up all around. A group of Snow Village visitors have just returned from a wintry torchlight hike. My question about showers in the Snow Village was answered with no.
But there are heated washing facilities with toilets and washbasins - perfectly adequate. After a drink at the campfire, we are called to the table. There is cheese fondue. At this point, one thing must be said: even if you are not a fan of cheese fondue per se, you should not miss this fantastic dinner in the Snow Village.
First of all, the cheese fondue tastes different in this environment than elsewhere. I give you my word of honor. Second, it's about the atmosphere and the togetherness, which is phenomenal at candlelight in an igloo. Just in case you don't like cheese at all: a Tirolean snack platter is also on the menu. Dead tired, I'm falling on my skins in my own little igloo. Literally. Cuddled up in my sleeping bag, I spend a dreamless night at over 2000 meters above sea level.
