Our Korea specialists are keen to design a one-of-a-kind journey around your individual wanderlust. In Seoul you may want to explore the bohemian chic boutiques of gingko tree–lined Garosu-gil, or relax with a wellness retreat at a Buddhist temple or an afternoon at a jjimjilbang, a traditional bathhouse.
Explorations further afield reveal delightful surprises, including Gyeongju’s hauntingly beautiful ruins and tombs, which date from the 7th-century Silla dynasty, and hikes among the craggy peaks that rise around Mount Seorak. If you’re interested in investigating the political situation of this divided peninsula, we can arrange a trip to the DMZ on the border with North Korea.
Along the way, you’ll savor the country’s spicy cuisine, perhaps sampling a steaming bowl of bibimbap (a signature Korean dish of mixed rice) or bulgogi, barbequed beef fresh off the grill. Whether you’re just stopping over for a day or plotting an in-depth look into its emerald green rice paddies, pine-clad mountains, dreamy archipelagos, or pockets of fast-paced modernity, we’ll craft an adventure that suits you.
