Adventure Korea is gearing up for the annual MUD FESTIVAL.  This is the biggest festival in all of South Korea and Adventure Korea has been taking people down south to play in the mud since 2003.  With all our experience we know what you want and what to expect.  So sign up and let us take you to a place where you’ll find it is the muddier the better.

The festival is held over a period of nine days.  Therefore we will be taking two trips, the first one is on Saturday 16th - Sunday 17th and the second one will be Saturday 23rd - Sunday 24th.  You can choose which ever weekend suits your schedule best.

On Saturday we will travel down to Boryeong.  However our first stop won’t be the festival.  First up we will go to the actual mud beach for the silt extreme training.  Here you get the chance to dress in military gear, compete in races, wrestling, muddy games and much, much more.  This is not part of the festival; it is a special extra activity that we have built into our schedule.  And it’s well worth it.  Get muddy, make loads of friends and have a blast before we even get to the festival area.

As a special treat, for those that sign up on the second trip (July 23rd-24th) there will be a fun obstacle mud marathon on the real mud beach in the area.  Along the course will be special rubber hurdles and challenges.  This is going to be so much fun.  Running, sliding, climbing over the hurdles, and trying to out pace everyone else.  It’s especially for our tour group.  Everyone that participates will receive a medal of participation, and the top three runners will receive money prizes. Usually this costs W15,000, but AK has generously offered to pay for everyone.  So make the most of a free fun mud run.  This event will take place on Saturday right after the silt extreme military training.

After checking into our hotels, you will have free time to explore the festival area, and all that Daecheon has to offer.  Daecheon is a beautiful sandy beach town, so all the mud for the festival is trucked in especially for the festival.  Paint yourself in mud of various colours, wrestle your friends or total strangers, tug-of-war games, and the various mud slides, but watch out or you may be put into the mud prison.  Why not pose for the photo competitions, our AK members have been selected for brochures etc in the past – maybe it will be your turn this year.  Don’t forget the massages, crafts you can make, the gorgeous sauna, and so much more.

At night after the muddy part of the festival is over there will be a concert and fireworks.  Here you will see some of the best fireworks displays in Korea, and you will be guaranteed a great view wherever you decide to sit on the beach.

On Sunday you will have more free time to get muddy again, or just relax on the beach, before we make our way back to the buses and back to Seoul.

This really is the festival no to be missed, and is world famous.  The mud at the festival is very good for your skin, so save a bit of money and give yourself a full body mud mask. 

Come on and get down and dirty with Adventure Korea.

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)
