Jeju

A large island off the Korean peninsula's southern coast, Jeju Island was , for centuries, an independent realm. After it was subdued by the Koryo dynasty, Jeju became part of Korea - though the island's culture, customs, and peoples remained markedly different than the rest of the peninsula. Due to such disparities, Jeju rebelled in 1948 against the South Korean regime; this uprising was brutally suppressed, and the episode remains obscure and little-known, even within South Korea.

Today, Jeju Island, known as Jeju-do in Korean, is the Hawaii of South Korea. A large, volcanic island, Jeju features a fascinating landscape with a unique vibe distinct from the rest of South Korea. On Jeju, visitors can explore geological and cultural history, experience nature in its myriad forms, and simply relax and savor the beauty of the island.

Jeju Chusa Exhibition Hall

With your private tour guide, wander the Jeju Chusa Exhibition Hall. Opened in 2010, the hall is a memorial to Kim Jeong-hui, the great Joseon era (19th-century) calligrapher and Renaissance man who spent eight years in exile on Jeju.

Manjanggul Lava Tubes

Explore the Manjanggul lava tubes, cited as the finest such volcanic cave system in the world, and designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO.

Mount Halla

A sprawling, inactive volcano which forms the bulk of Jeju Island, Mount Halla is the highest mountain in South Korea. Ascend part or all of the 6,400 foot peak of Mount Halla and hike the various trails (ranging from 0.5 to 5 miles in length).

Sunrise Peak Tuff Cone

Embark on a dawn ascent of Seongsan Ilchulbong, or “Sunrise Peak,” the dramatic inactive volcanic crater rising out of the ocean off Seongsan. This amazing tuff cone was formed 5000 years ago by hydrovolcanic eruptions upon a shallow seabed. Sunrise Peak is part of Jeju’s triumvirate UNESCO sites of Mount Halla, the lava tubes and Ilchulbong tuff cone itself.
