Building an igloo and spending the night in it? For sure! All you need is the guiding hand of Cecilia Lundin, owner and guide at NatuLife in Jokkmokk, a couple of teammates and the proper tools. And lots of snow of course. But be aware of life-changing experiences.
Building an igloo is hard work and nothing you should do without a professional guiding you, making sure that it meets all safety requirements. It also requires a reasonably good physical condition since you’ll be working in the snow all day, enduring the cold and putting your teamwork skills to the test.
Starting to sound daunting? Don’t worry.
This will be one of those experiences you will not forget – ever. It’s about pushing your limits, working together and getting close to nature. Cecilia has many years experience of guiding guests from all over the world in the Jokkmokk mountain area, and is an expert igloo and bivouac builder.
– The majority of my guests are from abroad, many of them with little experience of snow and cold temperatures. Their common denominator is that they find my part of the world exotic and exciting, says Cecilia. I find it fascinating that ordinary people want to challenge themselves, experience something completely new. Push their boundaries. Willing to learn something about themselves. This is the best part of my job, getting to meet so many different people, helping them work together towards a common goal. Also, they have a lot of fun!
