Next Stop: Korea -

A Trip from Seoul to Busan beyond Tourist Maps!

See the Korea, that most tourists won't see!

Prepare for an extraordinary 9-day Fall foliage adventure through South Korea, where the usual tourist trails fade away, and the hidden gems come to light. From the vibrant streets of Seoul to the coastal charm of Busan, our curated journey is designed to unveil the authentic essence of Korea. Let’s dive into local treasures in Jeonju, Damyang, Yeosu, Suncheon, Boseong and Geoje Island. We will of course see some Must Visits for South Korea, but also witness the untouched beauty that awaits those who venture off the conventional touristy paths while still experiencing the Korean Culture we all know and love.

This is not just a trip – it’s an exploration of the uncommon Korea that most tourists won’t be able to see!

Your Hosts:

As Tour Guide and traveler we met on one random trip and after becoming friends we travelled together to Danyang, Jecheon, the DMZ, Nami Island, Tongyeong and other destinations. During those trips we realized, that we have the same goal: Showing other travelers the hidden beauty of South Korea, that most tourists cannot see. So end of 2023 we decided to plan a trip together for adventurers like us and here we are!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Who can join the trip?

Literally everyone over 18 years old, who wants to enjoy the hidden Korea with us! We don’t care about nationality, religion, looks or whatever. You are welcome to join!

Please keep in mind that some of the activities we plan for the trip will require a basic fitness level though.

What if I have special dietary restrictions?

As our trip is going deep into the country, away from tourist spots and modern cities and as we focus a lot on local gems including local traditional dishes, we unfortunately cannot guarantee vegan / halal / gluten-free / … options.

We will always try our best to find an option for you and we will always have a convenience store stop planned per day, but we can’t guarantee anything. Please let us know your requirements when making a booking!

What are the room options?

We offer the following room options:

  • single room (1P)
  • shared room (1P)
  • twin room (2P)
  • double room (2P)

If you chose the shared room, you will randomly get a room mate on the first day of our trip. Changing room mate will be possible on the first day (if you meet someone you get along with really well for example) but on mutual understanding so no one feels left out! 

All Hotels will be of similar midrange standard, clean and with good ratings. Please keep in mind, that – no matter which option you choose – during the Hanok Stay you have to sleep one night on a floor mat (the Korean traditional Style) and share a room.

Our previous Trip:

In April 2024 we did the first trip of this kind together with 5 wonderful women from Argentina, Germany and the US. We made amazing memories, learned so many new things about Korean Culture and simply enjoyed our time here. Just like this Fall Trip we travelled for 9 days from Seoul to Busan.. but instead of the west and south part of the country we explored the more eastern region – with Gangneung, Danyang, Jecheon, Andong and Pohang!
