Description

Jointly organized with Korea Tourism Organization & our Korean Partner NTC.

South Korea seems to be more famous for its food, culture, drama & handsome & pretty actors/actresses than it outdoor adventure & nature. Adventure travel may not be the first thing you think of when going to South Korea - but perhaps it should be.

A brief summary of all our past trip in this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pITQ57RwMF0

Feedback on some of our trips:

K - NATURE
*************
South Korea is a small country with a lot of people, so there is a huge demand for space. As a result, many of the country's natural habitats have been squeezed into smaller areas. There are 21 national parks, but the only areas of true wilderness left are the mountain forests.

Quoting -> https://www.nomadasaurus.com/5-scenic-hiking-spots-south-korea/

Hiking is more than just a pastime in South Korea—it’s a way of life.

In a country where mountains make up about 70 percent of the total land area, it should be no surprise that hiking is one of the top choices for recreation. In fact, according to the recent findings from a survey by Gallup Korea hiking is the most popular pastime in South Korea among natives 13 years and older.

If you're the kind of person who enjoys the great outdoors, you are in for a treat. There are 20 national parks in Korea for you to choose from, including three marine parks. The first designated national park also happens to be the largest, Jirisan National park (지리산국립공원) located in the southwest (1,915meter sea level high). Parks are home to a variety of wildlife and have been kept in remarkably pristine condition. Korea is truly a hiker's paradise, but there are other activities that can be enjoyed besides hiking. For example, you can take part in watersports or visit ancient historic sites. At the Muju Resort (무주리조트), located in the Deogyusan National Park (덕유산국립공원) skiing can also be enjoyed. Overnight accommodation can be arranged within the parks, including hotels, camping, temple and farm stays.
