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.

  • This is an exceptional place to visit. My family loved it. There are many things to do and great food to eat. Be ready to walk a lot but you can rent bicycles and the are other things you can rent if not a fan of walking. I wish I got there earlier Now the negative is that it is a lot of traffic to get there and to come back. I recommend trying to find a hotel around. The ferry is about ₩13 and food is not expensive. Will definitely be back
  • A nice small island surrounded by a small river. There are myriads of activities you can do there ranging from water sports, shopping, cafe, picture taking etc. This is also the place where the movie 'winter sonata' is filmed, so expect to see many reference of it on the island. The trees and sculptures are ideal for picture takings. There are also birds such as ostrich and goose on the island for bird lovers. You can expect to spend half a day there. The boat trip is only 6 minutes and there are no huge wave since it is not out in the open sea, so even people who suffer motion sickness is able to visit Nami island.
  • A tourist trap, but I like tourist traps. There are a lot of things to do on the island. Don't bother renting one of the bikes. For older kids, there's a cool obstacle course on the southwestern end. The restaurants here aren't bad either. What I suggest doing is getting as far away from the crowds as possible--if possible--for it's a peaceful place for a stroll.
  • Wow, it's a mini paradise get away!! Honestly beautiful and full of greenery. It feels like you are walking through a films forest. Find bunnies hopping around and ostriches for sight seeing. Many unique and artistic sculptures to enjoy. It a romantic type of setting while family friendly. They have an area that has little rides children can enjoy. I went with friends and enjoyed some of the many cafes. Try the soft ice cream! The mango flavor ice cream was great. There is a souvenir shop with post cards if you are into that. You can also find Ziplines. Go with enough time in the day to fully enjoy the entire island and all it has to offer!
  • A beautiful and peaceful island in a river north and east of Seoul. It is a cultural island, where many international events are organized. Everything on the island is ecological. Among other things, there is a remarkable museum of musical instruments and many shopping venues. There are also outdoor small libraries. I spent my holidays unforgettable!
