Harbin Ice Festival

Officially the Harbin International Ice & Snow Sculpture Festival, this month-long celebration of all that is cold and wonderful is the largest gathering of its kind in the entire world. Ideal for travellers who’ve already crossed China’s other highlights off their lists, this four-day adventure grants you access to the festival’s wintry wonders, including traditional ice-lantern exhibits, alpine skiing events, and the world’s largest ice sculptures. (The tour works as a perfect add-on to further adventures in China, too!)
