From late spring to early autumn, Korea offers a plethora of outdoor activities and adventures, ranging from skydiving in Ansan to windsurfing Seoul’s Han River to hiking on Jeju Island. Your journey will cover a significant amount of this diverse land, and along the way, decompress between adventures at Korean-style saunas, called jjimjilbangs. In addition, venture off the tourist path to take part in several unique, exclusive Remote Lands activities, thereby ensuring an unforgettable excursion into the soul of this beautiful land.
Begin your adventure in Seoul, windsurfing the Han River, the mighty waterway that splits the mega-city in two. Wake boarding and water skiing options are also available, although for Seoul residents, windsurfing is the sport of choice along the Han. Spend the night relaxing at a jjimjilbang, the Korean-style spa. Rest this evening at your luxury hotel-- we recommend either the Ritz-Carlton or the Conrad.
This morning, traverse the waters of the scenic Gangwondo province via canoeing, rafting, or kayaking. This afternoon, en route to the Gangwondo capital city of Chuncheon, cycle the hilly terrain with its stunning vistas. After your arrival in Chuncheon, take part in an authentic local meal of dalkkalbi, a savory chicken dish served family style.
Today, muster your courage and prepare youself for the thrill of a lifetime. You're going to sky dive in Ansan. Located on the western coast of the Korean peninsula, Ansan is the nation’s sole destination for this exhilarating activity. Attain a rare bird’s-eye view of this mountainous country from over two miles in the air. Spend the night back in Seoul.
Explore Jeju’s underwater world in a diving excursion. Jeju is a famous diving destination, with its tradition of haenyeo, or Jeju diving women, who are able to stay submerged for over two minutes without equipment. Of course, you will be given equipment for your dives. Later, charter a boat or just relax on the beach at your leisure.
On your final day, hike Hallasan, Jeju’s central mountain and a Korean favorite. Structurally a shield volcano, this natural gem is home to the oldest Buddhist temple of the island. Close the day at Seongsan Ilchulbong, also known as “Sunrise Peak,” a volcanic crater ideal for viewing the sunrises (or sunsets) of this island escape.
