Walking on Ganghwado Island never leaves you bored of the view. South Korea’s fourth-largest island, located at the northwest end of the country, has a variety of landscapes that reflect its dramatic history.
Several times a key place where Korea resisted foreign invaders ― not always successfully ― the island features well-preserved historic remains, in the downtown area, rural villages and along the coastline.
The island is also a place where visitors can get a close look at North Korean territory just across the strait. North Korea’s Gaepung-gun can be seen from Ganghwado Island’s northeast.
The island takes walkers past prehistoric sites, old battlefields, heavily fortified walls and barbed-wire fences along the borders with North Korea. Our guide will collect you from your Seoul hotel to drive out of Seoul to visit major attractions of this island. The drive from central Seoul to Ganghwa island is approximately 2hrs.
The itinerary can include highlights of Ganghwa island such as Ganghwa Peace Observatory, Ganghwa Dolmen Site[UNESCO World Heritage], Ganhwa Pungmul Market, Local Craft Gallery, Gwangseongbo Fortress.
