Winter 8 days Ski Jeju Busan Mt Seorak Seoul on the end Nov to Jan

South Korean winter is dreadfully cold, but here’s an idea to kick ourselves out of the sofa and the comfort cave. Open the window, and imagine inhaling some fresh mountain air. Let’s recharge our batteries by flying down the snow-covered mountains!

Isn’t there no pleasure comparable in the winter, to drawing fresh ski-tracks on the pristine, untouched white slopes? We will venture into famous Mt. Seoraksan, through its lyrical valleys, rocky peaks, deserted fortresses and a Buddhist temple. The visit to a volcanic island of Jeju will delight you with its idyllic natural wonders. Busan is a famed metropolis of vacation by seaside that will add your trip a vivacious flair.

You can customize your destinations during this private tour, so that you can spend your time effectively. We don't waste your time by visiting compulsory shopping centers.
