One Day Harbin Ice and Snow Fairyland Tour

The Essence of Harbin

Harbin, the "ice capital of China", presents Harbin Ice and Snow World's festival every year. The city becomes an ice wonderland, with everything in ice from modern architecture to traditional palaces, all carved by incredibly talented artists and made even more stunning with the use of lasers and sophisticated lighting.

This one-day tour includes the main sights of the Ice and Snow Festival and a foodie tour combined with a historical city walk. Taste representative Harbin and Northeast China dishes, get to know local people's winter life, witness the well-preserved Chinese Baroque architecture, and learn about the history of Harbin.

The opening ceremony of Harbin Ice Festival is scheduled to be on January 5th, 2024, but the ice and snow sculptures in the Harbin Ice and Snow World are open to public viewing from December 17th 2023 and lasts till early March 2024.
