Nami Island, Chuncheon

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.

  • From Seoul it took 3 hours to get the ferry area. Crossing the river hanggang 5 -10 minutes ago there arrived on Nami Island. We are only 2.5 hours and felt less time to explore further. Many of the spots we missed. So it is advisable to take the packages, simply with the goal of 2 tourist sites only. Take advantage of more time at Nami Island. After returning from Nami and down ferry, then can ask for some sort of immigration stamps stamp in passport that had been visiting the Nami Island. But the queue is very long. I myself skip passport stamp of having to rush to another location again.

  • 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.
