Harbin Ice and Snow World is by far the largest ice and snow art exhibition in the world. It is commonly referred to as possessing four of the key ‘mosts’: the most art attractions, the most beautiful night views, the most recreational activities and the most forms of entertainment. The festival is constantly evolving and each year brings with it a new theme, providing visitors with a totally unique experience from one year to the next.
The ice carvings at the ice festival are regarded as some of the world’s finest examples of ice art. Each of these ice carvings is designed to relate to the festival’s theme, allowing travelers to sample a variety of cultural flavors.
One of the highlights for any visitor to the festival is to visit the site at night when multicolored lights set underground illuminate the sculptures, revealing a whole new colorful dimension to the exhibits. The contrasts of the bright and dazzling lights against the dark night sky make the works look all the more spectacular.
The ice festival is also a center for various forms of recreation and entertainment. Visitors will be amazed by the magnificent ice buildings, including an ice maze, ice bar, and even an ice hotel. Participate in activities such as ice rock climbing, skating, skiing, sliding, snow fights, ice golf, and ice archery. Take in the special performances based on the festival theme put on throughout the event.
