The Moomin Ice Sculpture exhibit in the world opens December 26th 2019

This world belongs to somebody else whom I don’t know. Perhaps to the Groke. It isn’t made for Moomins. 

-Moomintroll, Moominland Midwinter

Enter Moominland Midwinter

What happened when Moomintroll woke up early from his hibernation? Journey to the Moominland Midwinter and see Moonminvalley's inhabitants in 16 beautiful ice sculptures.

Feel the magic of ice sculptures

The best ice sculptors of the world have created for you a frozen wonderland where the play of light lets your imagination run wild.

Are you afraid of the Groke?

Groke has brought eternal winter to the cave. It might be summer aboveground, but inside the ice cave you can experience the wonders of winter and console lonesome Groke.

Descend 30 meters into an underground cave
