The igloo was very beautiful, the staff was young and friendly and the fondue was quite good. A negative point is that we had to wait from 7PM to 7:30PM to get a table and a blanket, we were quite freezing and we didn't get...More

We enjoyed fondue in the igloo on New Years Eve. Although the igloo rather looks like a huge messy amount of snow on the outside, it's very nice inside. After entering, you first get into some kind of "arrival room" with snow and ice sculptures......More

Unlucky due to lack of snow. Igloo is fine, though not as impressive as similar ones in Finland. Fondue is mediocre, but slightly more expensive than it should be.

My wife & I (aged in our 60's) walked from Adelboden village down to the river at the bottom of the valley and then along it to a beautiful big waterfall (Engstigenfalle). This took a little more than an hour and was fairly easygoing. Alternatively...More

To have a fondue in an igloo is really a unique experience. Despite being a little far from the village, it is still worth it. You'll spend around 18 CHF (round trip) for the taxi to the lift, around 20 CHF for the lift itself...More

This is an original and nice way to eat a cheese fondue (other meals if you are not too much on fondue). An experience which will please everyone, the best is to go in a team. The decor is nice, the setting well organized....

Took in an evening upon recommendation to have traditional swiss fondu in the amazing setting of a real igloo! You need to like cheese and bread to go here, because thats all thats on offer. For our tastes, I would say the fondu isn't the...More

The igloo appears smaller from the outside, but is large inside with many rooms where you can enjoy lovely glutwein or fondue. The ice statues are amazing, with some containing a single rose or gladioli. Tables and chairs are also made from ice blocks and...More

Actual visit was in April 2013. We pass by Adelboden which was extremely beautiful place with streams, pine trees and mountains. We reached Engstligenalp and took a cable car which was a short duration to the top. We did husky ride and ate cheese fondue...More
