Toilet: There is a compostable toilet in the Igloo. We recommend to use a toilet on shore, but it can off course be used if needed. Please sit down when you use the toilet.
Lifejackets: There are 2 lifejackets in the igloo in the storage behind the toilet.
Flashlights: There are two flashlight in the igloo, one in the locker on the right side when you enter the igloo and one hanging on the right side in the kitchen.
The heating is set on +20 C. You can adjust the heating on the panel in the kitchen. There are three heat sensors in the igloo. One by the floor, one by the bed and one in the roof, please do not cover them, they are not cameras.
In summertime we need to cover the glass roof. Otherwise it will be too hot in the cabin. We recommend that you cower the glass walls with the curtains when it is sunny. This will help the igloo to stay cold.
You can access the free Wifi system by scanning the QR code with your camera.
To use the radio simply push the on button on the radio. You can link it to your phone with Bluetooth by pressing the left button on the panelradio.
There is a first aid kit in the last drawer in the kitchen.
Relax and enjoy the nature. If you want to try some fishing, the fishing rod is in the small hatch at the right side when you enter the igloo.
Summertime there is a rowing boat at your disposal. Remember to fasten the lines so the boat won’t drift away. Also wear a lifejacket when you use the rowing boat or the SUP boards.
