The Basics

Thanks to its scenic beauty and cultural significance, Nami Island has become one of the most popular day trip destinations from Seoul. An entrance ticket to the island includes round-trip transportation on the ferry from Gapyeong Wharf.

Many day trips to the island also include a visit to Petite France, a cultural village that looks like it belongs in the Piedmont Alps. Tours might also include stops at the Garden of the Morning Calm or the Elysian Ski Resort, depending on the season.

Must visit areas in Seoul during autumn! We liked the Garden the most. Go during early morning to avoid crowds.

Nami Island+Petite France+Gapyeong Rail Bike+Garden of Morning Calm
We had a wonderful time! Our tour guide was Rei and he was friendly and nice. He explained how each visit site worked in our tour schedule. We had plenty enough time to visit and sightsee all the beauty Korea has to offer. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather =) *Also, at the end of the night, my son left his beloved beanie hat in the vehicle and Rei was able to return it to us that same night! We enjoyed a great day!

Nice excursion. But mainly it’s just transportation to and from.

Day Trip to Nami Island with Petite France and Garden of Morning Calm
It was a nice day excursion. I guess I was just expecting a bit more history and information between attractions. Sunny was very courteous. However, the bus driver drove a little too much like a maniac. It made for an uncomfortable experience on the bus.

Private Tour Nami Island with Petite France or The Garden of Morning Calm
Our trip to Nami Island and Petite France was excellent. First of all, the driver speaks English very well. He was friendly and also on time. He showed us a lot of good photo spots in Nami Island and Petite France. And he also explained a lot of stories and basic knowledge about Korea in general. He was very helpful and kind. We had a very good time!!

Private Nami Island Photo Shoot and Tour with a Photographer
Justin was very helpful by suggesting various ideas and chose the best locations for the surprise proposals. This has led to a very happy and successful proposal. Overall, Justin was very committed, helpful and easygoing, this has led to cheerful day for me and my now-fiancee. Other than that, he also made us some delightful GIF out of goodwill!

Worth the trip if you're a K Drama Fan

Day Trip to Nami Island with Petite France and Garden of Morning Calm
I really enjoyed the three stops, we were given more than enough time at them which was nice. I do think that this tour could have benefitted from more information about the stops, it relies a lot on you being a fan of Korean Dramas and even though I am, I also like to know the history behind the places I'm visiting. I visited this alone and enjoyed it still. Our tour guide, Lammy, was very nice and good to talk to.

When to Get There

The island attracts visitors year-round, with each season having its own appeal. Spring brings cherry blossoms (typically during the month of April), and the island is lush and green during summer. It’s a popular place for leaf peeping come autumn, while couples come in winter to experience the snow-covered landscape as seen inWinter Sonata.

Top Photo Ops on Nami Island

Nami Island, which is perhaps best known for its tree-lined lanes, is undeniably photogenic. The Central Korean Pine Tree Lane, which leads through the center of the island, is a must-visit. In autumn, yellow-covered leaves make Ginkgo Tree Lane particularly scenic, while the towering redwoods of Metasequoia Lane, stunning throughout the year, are worth visiting. If you’re a fan of Korean dramas, be sure to visit theWinter Sonata Statue in Gongsaengwon Garden.
