tour details

Harbin’s annual Ice and Snow Festival is celebrated from 21 December to 28 February and is the world’s biggest winter festival. Experience the magical snow sculptures and excellent skiing during this winter wonderland.

Your tour guide will be waiting for you with a nameplate and warm smile as you walk out to the arrival hall of the airport. Transfer by private car and driver to your hotel to check in.
Meet your tour guide in the hotel lobby to start today's excursion. First, ride in a bus protected by a security cage through the Siberian Tiger Park where about 100 purebred Siberian tigers roam freely. Ligers (the result of a lion and a tiger breeding), pumas, lions and leopards are housed in a caged area. You can purchase meat or live poultry at an extra cost to feed the animals. Next, stroll leisurely along Harbin's ‘architectural art gallery', Central Street, lined by western-style buildings constructed in 1900. This is also a good spot for shopping and dining. Lunch will be arranged at the town's most popular dumpling restaurant, Dongfang Jiaozi Wang (King of Eastern Dumplings). Enjoy a dumpling feast of different textures and flavours.Afterward, explore the north bank of Songhua River, which is home to two major sites of Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival, the Sun Island Scenic Area and Ice and Snow World. Here thousands of ice and snow sculptures are made by artists from both China and around the world and you're likely to see some artists still working on their icy creations.
Today you'll hit the slopes with a day of skiing at Jihua Ski Resort, which is about a 1.5-hour drive from the Harbin city centre. Suitable for beginner and medium level skiers, the resort boasts eight ski slopes and an equipment centre with good facilities. The experience includes transfers and admission to the ski resort. Other expenses, like skiing and rental fees, are on your own. After skiing, transfer back to your hotel.
As you have come to the end of your vacation, your driver and guide will meet you at your hotel and take you to the airport. They will assist you with your luggage and check-in to ensure that you will have a stress-free departure.
