Don't let the chilly weather put you off visiting South Korea in winter. Take the opportunity to experience a unique Korean winter festival, in celebration of Mountain Trout, the Hwacheon Sancheoneo festival! Follow the locals on their annual pilgrimage into the beautiful mountainous countryside away from the city. Dig holes into the hard ice and fish for fresh trout as part of this hundreds of years old tradition. When you've made your catch, have it cooked up for consumption at the festival kitchen. Afterwards, spend some time trying out the numerous ice activities on offer such as sledding, bobsled, ice soccer, ice sculptures and much more wintry fun. With transportation to and from the festival included, this activity comes highly recommended for anyone looking to venture beyond the city and get a unique insight into Korean culture.
