In December, do you remember hearing the song “Winter Wonderland” around Christmas? Well, there’s a place in Fairbanks, Alaska, that will be transformed into a real winter wonderland of ice sculptures February 24th through March 30th, 10am to 10pm daily.
“Ice Alaska” is the name of the event in Fairbanks, where ice art competitions and exhibitions take place at George Horner Ice Park.
Over 70 teams of ice artists from around the globe come to Fairbanks to construct elaborate works of art, built by ice, and illuminated in the darkness.
This year is Ice Alaska’s 25th anniversary, so it’s going to be the best one yet. Besides single and multi-block ice sculptures, the event features a kids’ park with big slides and an ice skating rink.
1st Alaska Outdoor School is offering VIP tour packages of this amazing ice experience. The guided tour includes narrated transportation along the single and multi-block classic displays and a visit to the kids’ park.
The VIP package starts with free guest pickup from your Fairbanks’ accommodation, and because you’re VIP, you won’t have to stand in line like everyone else to get tickets. Furthermore, because you’re traveling VIP, the opportunity to have an ice artist create a special sculpture just for you is available. How cool is that?!?
The end of this once-in-a-lifetime tour ends at the Ice Alaska souvenir shop, where you can enjoy complimentary hot beverages.
