Igloo

A skilled, experienced Inuit can build a sturdy igloo in as little as 40 minutes, using nothing but a knife and their hands.

The University of Calgary offers a two-day course in igloo building.


For 100 years, the flag of the tropical Turks and Caicos Islands in the West Indies mistakenly featured an igloo.

An enterprising New Yorker built an igloo in Brooklyn following the 2016 Winter Storm Jonas and listed it for $200 per night on AirBnB.

A quinzhee is a shelter made by hollowing out a pile of settled snow, while an igloo is made from stacking blocks of hard snow.

There’s an igloo village at the base of the Matterhorn Mountain, which is home to the world’s largest snow igloo.
