Day 1 - 09:00
At the meeting point we organize our equipment and walk comfortably to the location where we will set up the igloo camp. We will tell you one of our favorite places in the canton of Uri, lots of sun and breathtaking views included! Now the time has come for a lot of manual work and skill to set up a stable and beautiful construction where we will spend the night!
After a hard day's work, the time has come for a rewarding dinner. We'll cook warming camping style meals for you, enjoy the silence of the night, and stargaze. Winter nights are cold but crystal clear!
When the time comes, we slip into our sleeping bags and enjoy a restful night's sleep - the temperature in the Igloo is usually 0 degrees, this even though it is much colder outside!
Day 2 - 08:00
We wake up gently and enjoy another warm tea and breakfast. Now it's time to go snowshoeing again! We look for an avalanche-safe and beautiful peak, which we will summit. After returning to the base camp, we can have a snack, pack the pulka and backpacks and start our way back to civilization without any hurry. End of the adventure is at about 16:00
