This year, visitors will encounter a journey which begins in Jerusalem and ends in the Far East, travelling through rainforests, the fascinating lands of the east, the underwater world, children's world, and more. A visit to this year's ice festival is a excitement-filled challenge from start to finish with slides, mazes, tunnels, and more. In addition, this year's festival boasts an ice dance show, the first of its kind in Israel, with professional dancers in spectacular costumes.

The project, initiated by the Ariel company, aims to encourage tourists and visitors to come to Jerusalem and experience a unique adventure, from February 20 throughout the end of April, a date range which includes several holidays and vacation days including Purim, Passover, Independence Day. Hundreds of thousands of visitors are expected to pass through. Last year, over 300,000 people visited the Ice Festival.

The temperature will be set to ten degrees below zero celcius, and warm coats will be distributed at the entrance.

The first Jerusalem Ice Festival took place from March 3 - May 31, 2012. Click here to check out our coverage.
