Fire & Ice Trail
Follow the magical fire and ice trail around Durham’s historic city and enjoy 10 beautiful hand carved ice sculptures and flame beacons. The first ever Fire & Ice InDurham sees sculptures inspired by exploration of the North and South Poles.
Sculptures are created using traditional techniques by the leading ice artisans at Glacial Art, international ice sculpture champions and creators of ice sets for HBO: Games of Thrones.
