Description

Our annual Chuseok trip to Ullengdo and Dokdo is fast approaching.  This is the last real summer trip we will have this year, after Chuseok the cold starts kicking in, and winter starts to show it’s ugly face.  So join us for our last long weekend of fun in the summer sun. 


This year Chuseok is four days long which is pretty decent, we will take you away on Friday the 9th at night and get you back to Seoul on Monday the 12th before the Chuseok holiday is over. 


Ullengdo island is the most beautiful place in Korea, and where every Korean wants to visit at least once in their lifetime. Many foreigners take the time to visit Jeju Island during their stay here, but this island is in fact much more exotic and beautiful.

It is an extinct volcanic island, so there is lots of dramatic scenery.

During our stay we will also have the chance to go to the Dokdo Island, which is a Korean territory, but has been the subject of an ongoing dispute between Korea and Japan.

In history, the Japanese have tried to seize the island from Korea without success.

On the first day, we will do some sightseeing, and we will also take a cable car to the one of peak of the mountain, and visit the observatory for some great views of the surrounding area.

On the second day we will take a bus ride around the island. This is one of the best ways to explore the mountainous terrain, coastline, and waterfalls and it will be a great adventure.

We will also do some hiking up to the mountain peak from the valley created from volcanic rock. The scenery is very unique and interesting because it was made by several volcanic eruptions.


 


During your free time why not check out the small town we will be staying in, or try bridge jumping into the clear tropical water.  Ullengdo may be a small island, but there is still a lot to see and a lot to do, but it’s not as touristy as Jeju Island, so you will find it more relaxing and the locals are really friendly.

Every evening we will be able to relax and eat some fantastic tropical food, washed down by a few drinks of course!

This will be a great trip so please do not miss out!

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)
