Visit a Real Ice Castle at Loon Mountain New Hampshire

The Ice Castles at Loon Mountain is NOW OPEN in Lincoln New Hampshire! And it’s just  30 minutes away from Rabbit Hill Inn.  

Imagine the thrill of walking through the center of massive glacier-like solid pillars of ice, combined with ice tunnels, caves, slides, and archways.  All of it built out of solid ice.  At night, LED lighting makes the Ice Castles even more magical.

This is the first Ice Castle built on the East Coast. Built by Utah-based artist Brent Christensen using a latticework of icicles and a vast sprinkler system, Christensen has created a massive ice fortress for visitors to explore, with walls reaching 25 feet high. At night, multi-colored lights transform the castle into a frozen, glowing Narnia.  But you need to hurry, this Ice Castle will close on March 1st.

Important Tip: Wear WARM boots!!
