Nami Island is a favored destination for loved-up couples and those wanting a nature break, no wonder it was an obvious filming location for Korean TV show ‘Winter Sonata'. Stroll the ‘Forest of Sweethearts' and keep an eye out for ostriches, rabbits, deer and other wildlife that roam freely through the forest. The 150-year-old residences of Petite France, based on the iconic book ‘The Little Prince', are bound to transport your thoughts to quaint French villages. It's also the set for many scenes from ever-popular Korean drama ‘My Love from the Star'. For a dose of exercise during the tour, opt to experience the ‘Rail Bike' and pedal along the rail tracks while taking in the lovely Bukhangang River scenery!
Escape the hustle and bustle of Seoul for one day and travel to the countryside of the Gangwon-do region. Be one with nature and experience South Korea's stunning natural wonders with this day trip. It begins with transfers from Seoul at your chosen meeting spot, be it Hongdae, Myeongdong, Dongdaemun, or Seoul Station. Ride a comfortable bus to Petite France and pretend you're a character from the novel The Little Prince. Traverse through this quaint French-inspired park and check out statues and art created out of the famous book. Have a Chuncheon-style lunch with dak galbi (chicken cutlet and fried rice), which you can opt to have with cheese mixed with it! Then, head to the ever iconic Nami Island, where the Korean drama Winter Sonata was filmed, and take photos of the majestic trees around the area. You can also choose to stroll by the lake or ride bikes with your loved ones, enjoying the beautiful environment. If you choose the package with a rail park ride, you'll be dropping by Gangchon Rail Park, where you'll pedal through old tracks while admiring the sceneries of the Gangwon-do province. Go through tunnels, ride beside lakes, fields, and more! Though it's tiring, it'll be well-worth the views you'll be seeing. Return to Seoul comfortably by the end of the day with the bus trip back to your original meeting spot.
Spend a relaxing day in Seoul, away from the engaged city centre and traffic, as you travel to the picturesque Nami Island, go on a scenic Gangchon rail bike ride, visit a French-style theme park, kick back at the Garden of Morning Calm, and more!

Nami Island is well-known for its tree-lined avenues and got its fame as the filming spot of popular Korean show 'Winter Sonata'. Gangchon Rail Bike invites you on an adventure on an old rail track that has been turned into a relaxing ride through Korea’s amazing countryside. Visit Petite France, a French cultural village dotted with colorful buildings, which has also been a popular site featured in Korean dramas and variety shows. The Garden of Morning Calm is the best place to relax and draw some inspiration from - it’s a great romantic setting for couples, a quiet space for families and a true find for photographers.
I'm so glad I booked this tour. I really recommend this tour for everyone who's in Korea without a car. All of these locations (I booked all 4 locations) are very far from Seoul and in the mountains so booking a taxi from destination to destination is impossible (my friends were stuck in petite france for over an hour because there were no taxis available). My tour guide was Tim and he was super kind and patient with us! The whole process was very simple and we loved all the personal time we had for ourselves. He picks us up, drop us off at the locations, gave us and hour or two to explore everything, picked us up again to go to another location. We started from 7:20am to 7:40pm and it wasn't tiring at all because Tim gave us so much tome to rest in the car. He was super lenient with the time too, he'd give us extra time if we wanted to explore longer. For this tour, you really don't have to care about anything when you're on this tour because everything is ready for you, you just have to go. All the places are super gorgeous, the sightseeing, if you love nature I really recommend.
Wonderful daytrip from Seoul. We did this on our last day in Korea, so it was really rushed affair. The good thing about this tour was that such places are hard to get to, so taking a tour bus there makes it way more convenient and we could get some rest and not worry about not finding our way there. The food provided on the trip was good. Chicken Galbi 🐔 I love the little prince, so you could imagine how happy I was to visit Petite France. It was my first visit there..As for Nami Island, many nice photo spots esp in Dec, with the Christmas decorations. Simply beautiful!
The tour was very comprehensive. We were able to go to a different place around Seoul according to the given itinerary. The pickup time was on time. The travel was smooth and comfortable. We were has given enough time to roam around and enjoy our walks. Overall all it was a very nice experience. The time going back to the city was also great.
My boyfriend and I hopped on a 6:30 PM cruise so we could see Seoul lit up at night. It was a beautiful experience. I wish it could've been longer! The staff were very accommodating, offering us blankets and soft drinks. They played music during the trip, which was a nice touch. There were lots of couples and families on our boat. It was a lovely time, and we'll definitely be going again!
