Jarasum Island in Gapyeong, Gyeonggi-do is holding the Singsing Winter Festival from January 1 to 31, 2017.
Singsing Winter Festival, which makes use of the cold winter weather in January, largely consists of ice trout fishing and a play zone. Ice trout fishing offers an experience of fishing trout through holes made through thick ice, Visitors can enjoy the fun of personally fishing for trout which live only in pure water. The ice fishing site is divided into four sections, and visitors can choose a site according to their preference. Reserving an ice fishing site requires a fee, but it refunds part of the fee in the form of a Gapyeong Gift Ticket. The ticket can be used at restaurants and marts or for accommodation in Gapyeong-gun.
Winter Land Play Zone offers various winter leisure sports such as snow sleighing, ice sledding, ice hockey, and snow rafting.
As another benefit, festival participants can get a discount for the admission fee of Petite France, another of Gapyeong’s tourist attractions.
