How To: Create Your Own Cosy Igloo Retreat

Last year was the year of the igloo. All over UK cities, this cool outdoor structure popped up for use as cosy winter dining spaces, cocktail areas, and even alternative Christmas markets. The rising fame of the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finland, where you can sleep in a glass igloo under the stars and (hopefully!) catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights, has also played a part in the explosion in popularity of this dome-shaped structure.

But if you can’t afford a trip to Finland, or you missed out on booking one of the in-demand igloos along the Thames, don’t despair – you can now bring the magic of an igloo to your own backyard, where you can enjoy it exclusively throughout 2018 and beyond. The Garden Igloo 360° Dome is the actual igloo used by many London pop-ups, including the Coppa Club last winter, and it can be yours for less than the cost of a 4 night stay at the Kakslauttanen. N-ice!

3 steps to create your igloo retreat:

1. Assemble your Garden Igloo. This should take 2 people approximately 2 hours.
2. Add comfortable seating, and a table for your evening Prosecco.
3. Finish with faux fur and warm lighting, for a cosy feel!

So, what are you waiting for? Whether you want a romantic dining space, a quirky party base, a cheaper alternative to a conservatory, or a luxury hot-tub cover, there’s no solution more on-trend than an igloo. It’s a snow brainer!
