We have chosen to call our igloos SNØHUS. We currently have two different versions of the igloo.

Big Snøhus Igloo

We have created a 360⁰ observatory for nature, or for the surroundings. The igloo only leaves a mark on the people who experience it.

The large igloo is basically designed as a spacious "hotel room", where you will have room for a bed, as well as some other furniture and a heating/cooling source. It is very special to sit safe and warm in the front row behind 5 mm polycarbonate when nature plays up to a concert.

The igloo is also used in various contexts such as meeting place, pop up stage, restaurant or conference room, for nurseries, events and various health purposes, or for exhibitions and/or events for teams and associations.

Safe, durable and sustainable

Inspired by techniques used by the Inuit for centuries, snow houses are designed to perfection. It withstands the most extreme weather conditions. We do not use ice as a resource, but the most durable and sustainable polycarbonate. Its properties surpass ice, glass and steel. The material is 100% recyclable. No foundation. No footprint.


Snøhus are adapted to different climates, and can withstand a lot of weather and variations in temperature. It can be left outside in nature for a long time, in sun, rain, heat or frost. From warm, delicious summer days to cold, windy winter days.

The round shape is based on the traditional igloo and gamma shape that has been used by people on the Nordkalotten for several thousand years. The shape means that strong gusts of wind find nowhere to take hold, and that the wind therefore easily slips over. Utilizing multiple experiences provides new advantages in this modern igloo.

How is an igloo built?

An igloo consists from the top of; a roof with a valve. 12 plates in polycarbonate which are attached to the ceiling and floor. The floor consists of 12 "pieces of cake" with a joining circle in the middle. The floor consists of a water-resistant floorboard. It is insulated with 3.94 inches of Rockwool and a layer of air. Above there is a veneer top plate. The floor is self-supporting. The igloo is screwed together with acid-resistant screws.

There are four valves in the igloo


We need a relatively flat, stable surface to mount the igloo. The terrain and personal wishes in the project will often determine the type of foundation. The most common is to make a foundation similar to a terrace on which the igloo stands. It is important to attach the igloo securely to the ground.


We recommend a heat pump for heating and cooling the igloo, when you have access to electricity. Otherwise, you can use any type of heat source. Electricity, pellet stove, wood stove, gas stove with pipe or possibly fossil fuel.


Furnishing according to your own wishes and needs. Norwegian eye can assist with furnishing if desired (See Snøhus Service)


The igloo comes with 12 dense curtains that block out the view.


When buying a complete igloo, transport from the factory to the assembly site (driveable road) is included.


Norwegian Eye has its own carpenters/fitters who set up the igloo. It takes 2-4 days to assemble an igloo.


Depending on the location and use, the construction you want sometimes has to be applied for. Norwegian Eye is happy to assist in the process. We have very good partners we use who have specialist expertise in the field. The team is at your disposal if desired.


Arla Plast (which supplies the plates) has a 2-year guarantee on cracking and yellowing. The laboratory test corresponds to 20 years without change.
