While Seoul might seem like more of a major metropolis than an outdoor playground at first glance, look closer and you’ll see the South Korean capital offers serious adventure appeal. Whether you’re visiting in summer or winter, here are some of the area’s best outdoor activities to fuel your vacation.

Hiking Tours
Ride the Seoul metro on a summer weekend and you’re likely to see loads of locals heading to the mountains, hiking poles in tow. Take advantage of the excellent hiking opportunities by conquering Seoul’s highest peak inside Bukhansan National Park. From the top of Bukhansan mountain, it’s possible to gaze down on Seoul city to the south. Make the hike in spring to enjoy Korea’s cherry blossoms or in autumn to catch the fall foliage spectacle.

Skiing Tours
Once the snow begins to fall, winter outdoor adventure soon follows and you don’t have to stray far from Seoul to find it. Several ski resorts, including Yongpyong, Elysian Gangchon, Jisan Forest, and Daemyung Vivaldi Park, lie within easy day trip distance. A guided winter day tour typically lasts eight to 10 hours, with the option to ski, snowboard, or go sledding.

Han River Tours
See Seoul from a different perspective while enjoying the sights and sounds of the Han River. Adventurous travelers can test their balance with a stand-up paddleboarding lesson right in the heart of Seoul. Biking tours along the shores show off some of the city’s top attractions.

Korean Spa Experiences
The cherry on top of a great day of outdoor adventure is a relaxing wind down at a traditional Korean spa, or jjimjilbang. Ease tired muscles in one of these public bathhouses known for their hot tubs, showers, and kiln saunas. For an extra dose of pampering, opt for a Korean massage, body scrub, or face mask.
