December 22 to February 25

Pyeongchang isn’t only home to world class athletes. It’s also famous for having some of Korea’s tastiest trout populations. While taking a break from the slopes, you can visit this Korea winter festival for ice fishing. You can also live like your primordial ancestors and catch the trout with your barehands (you’ll have to wear shorts and a t-shirt if you want to participate). For those that want a bit of blockage from the wind, you can sign up for the tents where you can catch fish in relative comfort. Of course, the highlight of the festival is to take your fish to the nearby stalls where they’ll serve fish right there for you either grilled or raw. And of course, it tastes better when you’re the one who caught it.

In addition to all the fun fishing activities, there are also other fun activities such as bobsleighing, ice biking, ice sledding and snow rafting.
