Escape the hustle and bustle of Seoul during this 10-hour, guided tour. Meet your driver at your hotel at 9:00 am in the morning and drive for around 2 hours to reach Pocheon. Visit the Korea National Arboretum, located in the Gwangneung forest. Previously a royal forest surrounding the mausoleum of King Sejo of the Chosun dynasty, the arboretum was established in 1987 and was designated a UNESCO biosphere reserve in June 2010.
(Gwangneung forest closed on every Sunday and Monday, we will visit Sanjeong Lake instead)

Explore some of its 15 specialized plant gardens. Visit the arboretum's forest museum, herbarium and a seed bank. Apart from being home to 900 plant species, this area also provides refuge to a variety of animals and birds, including white-bellied woodpeckers.

Sit down for a traditional Korean lunch after exploring the area. Travel next to the Pocheon Art Valley, a complex built in a former granite quarry that has outdoor sculptures, a concert stage and a lake. The quarry operated from the late 1960's up until the mid-1990's. See its exhibition halls, outdoor performance stage, footpaths and monorail. This is the place where popular Korean dramas like 'Running Man' and 'The Legend of Blue Sea' were shot.

Your last stop of the day is Herb Island, which is dedicated to growing Mediterranean herbs. The island has both indoor an outdoor botanical gardens, offering over 180 different types of herbs. Head back to Seoul in the evening. Reach your hotel at around 7 pm.

“The trip was short but every moment was memorable. We were lucky enough to be able to visit some of the country's must-see places.
We took so many photos and videos during this trip since the scenery was breathtaking.

The hotels are very clean and well located, which allowed us to walk in the evening after the tours, breakfast was included which made it easier for us to get ready in the morning before heading out as we prefer to start our day with a full belly, simple, good and effective.

The transport, which was a van allowed us to rest and to enjoy the ride as it was only my husband and me and our tour guide Jay.
Jay was very professional, passionate and friendly, it was a real pleasure traveling with him, we asked him tons of questions and he always made sure to reply to all of them and took his time to give us explanations. He knew when to give us spaces and created a fun vie during the meals, helping us discover the Korean cuisine.
We will not forget this experience and we highly recommend this tour it was worth every penny.”
