Description

(No seats available)

Summer is here and many of you will have some time off from your hectic schedules. Why not let Adventure Korea take you away to Korea’s own Hawaii. We are offering you a special 5 day tour to see and do as much as we can. Sign up now as seats will fill up fast.
 
We will leave Seoul Friday night to avoid the traffic and take you to Jangheung in south Jeolla province where the biggest Aqua festival is held. While in Jangheung we will also visit the Vivi Ecotopia where we can walk around the huge forest area, and get back to nature. There are a lot of beautiful things to see, as well as a great chance to relax and unwind for a while.
We will participate in Korea’s first Nude Woodland Experience where we will wear thin paper clothes and take a therapeutic walk and relax in the forest. There is a waterfall and lake that we can check out too.
This “Healing Forest” and unusual approach, allows the skin to breathe in the phytoncides released from the trees, which can help environmental dermatitis, relax the human body and help with other minor health issues. There are also huts and forest baths that can admit up to 200 people at a time (these are generally used by families or groups of people) to check out.
 
We will participate in the water fighting in the main town of Jangheung while participating in the city parade.
We will provide big water guns to all our members and will do some kinds of flash mob along the parade like dance performance and water battle for 1 1/2 hours. This will be an amazing experience that you never experienced before (check the pics and video)
-We will also participate in the tug-o-war (in the water after).
-There will be a Party zone in the pool at night from 8-12. There will be a famous Korean DJ and Good Times Rok will bring the live foreign bands, Dance team, and Dj to get you all in the party mood !
-You can also do bare hand fishing, banana boat, kayaking and much more.
 
At night we will stay in tents in the festival area. Make sure to bring your own sleeping bag to sleep in.
 
The next day(Sunday) we will head out early, straight after breakfast, for the ferry to Jeju. This will take about two hours and you are free to walk around the ferry as we travel.
Once we arrive we will be met by our local guide and a limousine bus which will take us to all the best Jeju has to offer.
 
We will visit Manjang Lava tube first, at 7416 metres it is the longest lava tube cave in the world and well worth seeing. It stays a cool temperature of between 11-21’C all year round, so make sure to bring a light sweater. There are many natural lava figures in the cave that have low lighting to help point them out. Be sure to set your camera on night and stand as still as possible when taking photos.
 
Next, we will head to Loveland. Loveland will give us an interesting look at the amazing sculptures, and you can even try a few poses for the sake of memorable photos. This is one of the few places in Korea that shows the human form in all its glory. These sculptures were designed and built by 20 graduates from Hongik University in Seoul.
Right outside Loveland is the Mysterious Road, where you’ll get the chance to experience a ‘twilight zone’ moment. The bus will appear to roll up the hill with no help whatsoever from the driver. If time you may be able to get out and pour water on the road and watch as it runs uphill. It’s a weird optical illusion, but it’s pretty convincing.
 
And then we will check in our LUXURIOUS pension and will have Special Jeju pork BBQ dinner together and hold a big party with bonfire.
 
On Monday, we will have western type breakfast at our pension and leave for Southwestern part tour. We will take the beautiful Olle trail (The best part of the Oedolgae(외돌개) course), visit Jusangjeoli(주상절리) cliff, and Jungbang waterfall(정방폭포). We also visit the Natural pool and diving off the rocks(check the picture above).
And then you will have free time at Jungmun beach(중문해수욕장).
You can visit Yeomiji botanical garden, teddy bear museum, aquarium and relax on the golden sand beach.
 
On Tuesday, We will visit Seongsan Sunrise peak(성산일출봉) which is designated as UNESCO Natural Heritage Site. Next on the list of things to do is a couple of optional extras, you can choose to try horse riding or ride a ATV,Go cart.
And then we will have free time at the most beautiful Hamdeok beach(함덕해수욕장).
You also make your way to Hallasan for hiking.  Hallasan is the highest mountain in South Korea.  The view at the top is spectacular, you can see the whole island from up there. It will take about 9 hours to complete the hike.
On the last day, we will have breakfast together, then you will have free time to explore the area near the hotel. Walk and swim at the beach then pack your bags. We will head for mainland and arrive back on the mainland around 2pm. So you can eat lunch on the ferry. Then we will make our way back to our limousine bus and up to Seoul again.
 
We will be travelling with Jeju guides who possess plenty of local knowledge, so feel free to ask questions during your stay. Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances the itinerary may change, so our local guides will call ahead for the best times for each of our activities, to prevent too much waiting around. We’ll do our best to make sure that everything on the itinerary is still covered.

Cancellation Policy
The reason why we have these guidelines is because of the problems we've had in the past. Extra people would show up on the day of the trip and have to be turned away because there were no more seats available. Organizing trips, hiring buses and the likes can be expensive, and if people don't turn up without paying it can add to the overall cost of the trip. So by depositing the money into the bank account we can guarantee seats and know who is definitely coming and reduce the overall cost of the trip for you.

If you have paid and would like a refund we have a three day policy. This policy is as follows:

3 days before the trip: Full refund (72 hours from departure time)

2 days before the trip: 50% refund(48 hours from the departure time)

1 day before the trip: 0% refund ( 24 hours or less from the departure time)
