Hmm. Settings menu in the top menu bar has an entry "Configure KOrganizer" (or similar, translating from a German localized oned). It opens a settings window that has a "General" section. In that I have four tabs, the last one is labelled "Calendar" It list both of my two calendar sources and it has a three buttons, one labelled "Add..." Through that I get a list of possible calendar backends, one of the being "ICal file". Selecting that lets me choose a .ics file as the calendar source. Help -> About Kontact says "Kontact shell 4.11.5" Debian unstable, but there might be a newer version in the archives now.
