    It was a very enjoyable experience to fish in the ice! There were English signages all around, this easy to navigate around the area.

What To Expect

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, plus the useful addition of an informative English or Chinese speaking guide, this activity comes highly recommended for anyone looking to venture beyond the city and get a unique insight into Korean culture.

    It was a very enjoyable experience to fish in the ice! There were English signages all around, this easy to navigate around the area.

    We were having fun on Last day of the festival that we had fishing, sledding, skating and having barbecue fish even though the weather was cool. Btw Korean tour guide was a little bit boring...
  • andrew vun soon 4 Feb 2018
    had a great and memorable experience to fish in ice-fishing festival, though its freezing cool yet worth for the experience.
  • siew hao 3 Feb 2018
    value for money bought it during buy 1 free 1. not easy to get a chance to have ice fishing especially I am malaysian. We allow to catch fish for 5 and return to restaurant to cook. with the given 5000 won and use to redeem anything around but i use it to redeem food for our lunch that mostly fill with fish meals.

  • Kia Cheng 23 Jan 2018
    Good experience for first timer in fishing and love playing the sled it’s so excited
  • Hoi Kin 21 Jan 2018
    Totally worry-free hassle-free trip that is an amazing experience and unforgettable. Lots of fun. Though it is a very early start, it is actually better as you miss the crowd and you get the best fish too! You have time to rest on the coach there and back so it was fine. Weekday trip is better with less people.

    Overall the activity was interesting & fun but perhaps the tour guide could have given a better & clearer instructions prior start of the activity because we only receive briefings & instructions only at stages of the activitues. It is always good to let us know of the day's itienary again so that some pf us can plan ahead when we reach our destination. There are always occassions where we have to clarify with the tour guide on what's next etc...what time we should come bck n where..I thought these are understood instructions to be given by a tour guide themselves. Hope this area can be improved to allow travellers a better experience. Thank you Regards Meiqin
