    The festival had a lot of activities and there was enough time to do and see everything at the festival. The package was a good deal since the trip on the bus was quite long, food was cheap when we used the coupons, and the activities besides the fishing were also free (bobsled and ice slide). It was very cold in the early morning but it warmed up as the sun came out, and even if it was cold there were heated rooms off the ice with free lockers to safely store your things. water is even provided. Olivia, our tour guide, was funny and very helpful. I highly recommend this package.

  • RUSMARIA 18 Jan 2019
    Very sad because i cannot make it! I was lost on my way to the lotte hotel. To me the meeting time is too early~ 7:30am and on that time the subway crowded with people going to work.
  • Yap 17 Jan 2019

  • Lim 17 Jan 2019

  • Janine Olga 17 Jan 2019
    We had so much fun at the Ice Festival. My dad was able to catch Salmon. We bought a 1+1 promo which is a great deal! This is highly recommended.

    We are glad we purchased this ticket through KLOOK. Hassle free, and this event is a MUST go. An immaculate experience. 미랏씨 (Mira) is an excellent guide, warm, jovial, friendly, helpful and gives clear instructions too. A very responsible guide - She didn’t want to keep us waiting for 2 more persons who were extremely late, she entrusted us to another guide from Bus 1 to ensure we get to the Ice Sculpture safely from the Ice Fishing, until she arrives with the 2 late comers. She is very responsible. Throughout the ice fishing activity, she ensured we had fun trying our hand in fishing, she moved from around and spoke and took pictures of us all. 감사합니다 미라씨!!! We also get to play Sledding (3 times) included in the ticket price. Hope to see you again in other tours and next time when we visit Korea again.

    This festival only happens once a year in the winter season and we were glad to have been part of the unique experience! Our pickup was convenient, guide was clear in instructions, and the overall organisation was smooth! Ice fishing was very fun and we also had a chance to do ice sledding! The best part was having yummy hot grilled mackerels after our fishing activity!
  • YILING 14 Jan 2019
    Good Experience to try out ice-fishing and other activities like the snow sleigh. However, one downside is we cannot eat/grill the fishes that we caught and is allowed one grilled fish per person only.
  • Jasmira 13 Jan 2019
    First of all, our tour guide, Jamie was a nice girl & her English are good so its easy to communicate & understand. For the view, this place have a nice view which is you can fishing on top of freeze river. Its is exciting when you can fishing and eat your grill fish at the same place. Plus, they have sliding, and korean traditional ski. Overall its good but quite boring if you stay for long hours because not more to offer.
