Introduction
Hwacheon Sancheoneo Ice Festival takes place in Hwacheon-gun, Gangwon-do with plenty of snow and ice, perfect for a winter getaway. Since 2003, the festival has been visited by more than a million people, attesting to the festival's charm. Various festival programs include ice-fishing, ice sledding, bobsled, and more are available.

The main event of the festival, ice fishing, takes place on the frozen Hwacheoncheon Stream. Ice fishing is only possible when the stream has frozen to at least 2 meters thick, although the water is clear enough to see the bottom of the stream. In order for all guests to enjoy the fun and unique experience of ice fishing, thousands of sancheoneo (ice trout) are released into the stream every day of the festival.
