About the Igloo

This is one of the normal types of holiday accommodation you might choose to stay in. This epic igloo sits on one of two horse farms. You ski in or out of it. You stay in freezing temperatures, inside a real life igloo. There is an apartment on hand, should you get too cold. You may get hypothermia… this is one of those stays that is best for the thrill seeker. You must be mobile. You wouldn’t want to take your kids here, either. Having said that – it’s our most epic stay so far.

A Bit About Airbnb

Airbnb are a huge name in multinational travel. They operate all over the world, with their western market particularly strong. Airbnb uses an innovative model that allows you to stay in someone’s house, rather than in a hotel or other accommodations. Sometimes the owner rents out a room and sometimes you have the whole property to yourself. No matter what happens, though, you stay with a local person who has in-depth knowledge of the local area.

Airbnb hosts work hard to earn 5 star reviews. This makes for an excellent experience, most of the time. Traveling with them means your local guide can pass on information to help you make the most of your trip. They can leave you the best takeaway menus from the area, gift you literature on local attractions, and even put together welcome packs for you.

Airbnb began in 2007 when two hosts in San Francisco rented out their properties. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength to become a worldwide guest hosting firm. Users can sign up to rent out space in their own homes or sign up as guests. A review process helps keep everyone aligned.
