Nami Island, Chuncheon

4.3
Set in the middle of Bukhangang River only 63 km (39 mi) from Seoul, Nami Island provides a popular escape from city life for many locals, especially after the filming of a famous Korean drama. Stroll along the famous path lined with tall metasequoias and enjoy numerous sculptures representing love. Rent an electric bike to explore the supposed gravesite of a 15th-century general, or take a golf cart tour to enjoy the natural surroundings of countless chestnut, poplar, and mulberry trees. Cool off with a motorboat or waterski rental, or jump into the swimming pool. Use our Chuncheon day trip app to arrange your visit to Nami Island and other attractions in Chuncheon.

  • Lovely scenic island... good for couples as many good spots for photographs. Cover the island by walking... there are people cycling round the island, but it’s a small area so perhaps better to cover ...  more »

  • It takes about 15-20 minutes to get here by boat. There are quite a few shops and cafes here, so you can rest and have a cold drink. Best route is to walk from the dock north and walk along the path to the east side, the gradually turn to the South part of the island. This way, you catch most of the sights. From the south, you can go into the central part for the museums, cafes and shops. Lots of places to take pictures, even has a few ostriches. Ponds with fish! Ingenious statues. Time well spent.
  • in this independent island, one would take a ferry or zipline to enter and enjoy the flora and fauna. we were able to go to the place in 3 seasons--winter, fall, and spring. Enjoyed it most recently in the winter--with all the snow and playful animals. there are many structures all around and is worthy of photo-taking. Best season for me was fall, though. the different colors all around the trees make the place so majestic. the leaves range from green to red, violet, yellow , brown, and rustic. it is very beautiful indeed. in terms of food options, there is a variety available. there is also a good distribution of toilets all around such that one would not have difficulty looking when you need one. you can go on your own, but it would be very convenient to just join a tour group which is available practically every day.
  • Great experience with nature and wildlife here! My mom’s number one place to visit in Korea. She loves flowers, trees, birds, foxes and rabbits and a lot more animals. Very creative in bringing together fantasy and reality! A country within a country indeed. ^^
  • A great scenery place to visit, usually have a lot tourist visiting. Go early to avoid human traffic if you would like to take nice photo shot!
  • tho taking public transportation and a short taxi ride will take almost 2hours, its cheap considering. the island is FANTASTIC for a date walk with plenty of food n beverages outlet. a must visit when in South Korea! the ferry, the flying fox, the UNESCO train, live performance, just AWESOME!
