What We Love:

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 (Hwacheon Sancheoneo)! 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 ice sledging, 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 speaking guide, this activity comes highly recommended for anyone looking to venture beyond the city and get a unique insight into Korean culture.

Our guide was patient and professional in attending to the needs of an international group. She led us to the activities that had the least queues first to optimise our time there. Kudos to her!


We got confused with the meet upstation, but winterfriend has managed to help us to get on the destination by another car. The festival was awesome because of the winter activities, you should not miss this. Thanks winterfriend you are really a friend during winter
