Ah Seoul, a glimmering city lucky enough to have mountain hikes and forest trails right on its doorstep - the best of both worlds!

It’s believed that these granite mountains serve as the four guardians of the city, contributing to its feng shui and prosperity.

You’ll join one of our Seoul hosts as you decide on which of the many walks you’d like to take. They range from mild and scenic, like an easy stroll along Anyangcheon Stream, to tough and rewarding - climb a peak and get a glimpse of those views!

There really is a trail to suit everybody’s ability. Alternatively, if you’re fascinated by Seoul’s Buddhist temples, exploring the forests of the Bukhansan National Park is a must!

For something a little more central, the Namsan Mountain lies in the very centre of the city, and perched on top you’ll find N-Seoul Tower - another platform upon which to gaze down at Seoul in all its glory.

After your day of physical exertion, you might be in need of a bite to eat. Snack on a filling bowl of bibimbap, steaming chueotang (a spicy fish soup served with rice) or japchae (sweet and savoury stir fried glass noodles). A day well spent.
