A frozen fairy tale awaits you in North Woodstock, New Hampshire!

After a mild start to the winter of 2019, it's time to kick this season into gear with a visit to New Hampshire's Ice Castles. However, this year, they are in a brand new location in North Woodstock!  Also new this year...SLEIGH RIDES!

This has to be one of the state's favorite attractions. It draws thousands of people from all over New England and beyond to see the wonder of these frozen structures. This year you can explore Ice Castles in New Hampshire at 24 Clark Farm Road in North Woodstock, NH. The new location is just a few miles from it's former home in Lincoln.

The expected opening date is Friday, January 11th. According to their website, the hours for their 2019 season will be:

Tuesday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Fridays from 4 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Saturdays 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
They also plan to be open to the public on Monday holidays during the months of January and February.

Tickets will be available through the company's website, It's highly recommended that you purchase your tickets in advance.

Wear Boots! The walking surface inside Ice Castles is made of crushed ice. Walking in boots is definitely best.

Buy Tickets Before You Arrive! When you buy a ticket, you buy an arrival time. We ask that you arrive within your 30-minute time window. Once you are inside Ice Castles you can stay as long as you’d like!

Save some trees! When you buy your tickets online we’ll send you an email with a unique QR code, so there’s no need to print your tickets. We can scan the code right from your phone!

Photos are encouraged (and we want to see them! #icecastles) but we ask that you please leave photography equipment such as tripods and lights at home. For information about commercial or specialized photo sessions please email us at

Sleds are better. We highly recommend bringing a small sled to pull children instead of a stroller. It is extremely difficult to push a stroller through Ice Castles (think of it like trying to push a stroller on a sandy beach).
