Hwacheon Sancheoneo Ice Festival is held from January 7 to January 29 in Hwacheon. It is one of the four great winter festivals in the world and selected as the best festival in Korea by the ministry of culture, sports, and tourism.

The festival will be filled with many fun activities, such as Sancheoneo fishing, snow sledding, ice bobsleighing, ice sculpture plaza, and various light tunnels.

Sancheoneo is a fish that only lives in clean water. There are three ways of fishing Sancheoneo in the Hwacheo Sancheoneo Festival. The first is ice fishing, the second is lure fishing, and the last is barehand fishing. The best part of this fishing is that you can directly grill and taste your fish in the food center.
