An igloo is a temporary, dome-shaped shelter made out of snow blocks.

Welcome to the Igloo!

Sit down, lean back and learn along with us about the Arctic, Native culture, and traditional ways.

'Igloo' is updated with new pages as we move along seeing and hearing about stuff on the expedition trail.

So, check back every week!

During the winter, Inuit families would follow the hunt. They needed a shelter that would keep them warm, and protect them from the harsh winter weather. The most common winter shelter was a snowhouse, more commonly known as an 'igloo'.
