Yes, it's finally here. We have an official date for the opening day of the New Hampshire Ice Castles.

This unique, magical experience is complete and ready to amaze you with new adventures for 2022.

And it all starts Friday, January 14, according to the Ice Castles website.

If you've never been, then make this your year. Think of the movie "Frozen" with mystical, jaw-dropping moments.

Even Oprah is all about them. According to the Ice Castles website, she describes them as right out of a fairy tale.

And there are so many things to do at the Ice Castles beyond, well, the ice castles.

Not convinced yet?  Fine, let's dive into 5 reasons why this should be on your list of winter activities to do this year.

1) Ice slides, crawl spaces, and caves

During your walk through the castles, you'll encounter a myriad of illuminated fountains, a snow tubing hill, and horse-drawn sleigh rides. And the mystic forest light walk will give you shivers of warmth from its beauty.

2) New Features for 2022

The ice artisans created a brand new ice sculpture garden and a fairy village that lights up at night, per the Ice Castles website.

As a matter of fact, the website states that these ice artisans grew, harvested, and hand-placed thousands of icicles a day to build this mesmerizing winter wonderland.

4) It is unique

With only 5 Ice Castles in the entire country, according to the Ice Castles website, how lucky are we to have one of these beautiful adventures in our own backyard, and not all of them are even open yet. But New Hampshire is.

Your Instagram-perfect photos will be the envy of everyone.

The others, by the way, are in Midway, Utah; Brighton, Minnesota; Lake George, New York; and Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
