December 12 to February 18th

Just a short ride away from Daejeon and Sejong City, the Chilgapsan Mountain Ice Fountain Festival is a popular winter festival in Korea that’s great to visit if you’re coming with children. It boasts large snow and ice sculptures with well-known  cartoon characters such as Ppororo, and at night the sculptures are lit up with night lights making for winter wonderland lighting. There’s plenty of experiences for the children to have fun, such as sledding, bob sledding, horseback riding, zip lining, and ice fishing. If you want a weekend getaway in the snow with the kids, this is a great place to visit in Korea for the winter.
