Deeper into the Land of Morning Calm (15 days)

This extensive itinerary will take you to all corners of mainland Korea, suitable for those who really want to get under the skin of this fascinating destination. Beginning in Seoul, the tour passes through national parks in Songnisan and Jirisan, ruggedly beautiful coastline around Geoje Island and Suncheon, and stunning rural scenery in far south Jeolla province. There is cultural discovery galore in Gyeongju and Jeonju – the latter also thought to be the epicentre of Korean cuisine – plus ample time to take in the great outdoors, far away from the established tourist trail. You will experience a variety of accommodation, including overnight stops in both traditional ‘hanok’ houses, and also twice in Buddhist temple lodging. This is a hugely-varied and wide-ranging tour which also has plenty of scope for tailoring. Using this itinerary as a starting point we hope to create a trip which will showcase the very best of this great undiscovered destination.
