Hwacheon Sancheoneo Ice Festival
Sancheoneo is a species of trout, living in 1st-grade clean water. In winter, the river freezes over and the fish disappears under 40 cm of ice. If you are looking for unique things to do in Korea in winter, you need to experience ice fishing! In this festival, besides ice fishing, there are many other fun activities like bare hand fishing, ice sled, snow sleigh, ice skating and so on. You can also find large-scale ice sculptures at the ice plaza. You can also play traditional Korean folk games and make memorable photos at a photo zone.
Over 1 million visitors partake in the Ice Festival to enjoy activities like Ice Fishing, Ice Sleighs, Bobsledding, Ice sculptures, and many more!
