June,17~18 Mysterious Ulleungdo Island,Dokdo Island(Optional)

Hi~! all!
we will take you to the Ulleungdo, the most exotic island with the jurassic park or avatar atmosphere with crystal clear and turquios blue water!

We pick up at diverse places at Friday night and go straight to the beach close to harbor, some crash in motel or some just lie down on the sands and waiting for sunrise! grab some breakfast then take the ferry to Ulleungdo, check-in our pension! Our pension is located in the most developed town in Ulleungdo and the right beginning of the famous amazing seacoast trail with spiral stairs and light house!

Interested in seeing an island that was made from a series of volcanic eruptions? Then come explore Ulleungdo Island (울릉도) with us!

There are only two volcanic islands in Korea: Jejeudo Island and Ulleungo Island. Jeju is fantastic and beautiful and the natural scenery itself of Ulleungdo is like a jurassic park or avatar, just the most spectacular,the most stunning, and the clearest water even to see 10 meter deep below water! jaw-dropping sceneries at every coasts!

It is refered as the “10-best-secret-islands-around-the-world”

“An extinct volcano some 135km east of the Korean peninsula, Ulleungdo today is mainly a fishing town that sees enough tourism to warrant a sprinkle of hotels and restaurants, but there’s none of the neon clutter that chara¬cterises so many other tourist areas. At night the brightest lights are the lamps on the squid boats and the lighthouses. In the rainy season the green hues are even more vivid, saturating the hills like an overtoned colour photograph. In autumn, the hills are a patchwork of reds, greens and yellows from the turning leaves.”
