[Webzine 2] Jeju Bike Hiking

Special Travel: Recommended Destinations

Jeju has made and is operating fantastic bike roads along the coast for circling around with the bike. If you use these roads, you can experience relaxed hiking against the cool ocean wind breathing the fresh air of Jeju. There is no word necessary for the scenery on the bike. It is like looking around the art gallery with the ever-changing great spectacles. Also, it is good to enjoy mountain biking around Hallasan Mountain and the many oreum in Jeju. Even if it is a little hard, when you ride the bike and climb the oreum and see the scenery of Jeju, your efforts will feel like a great gift.

Tip. Cautions during bike hiking

Make sure to check the weather on the day. If it rains or the wind is strong, it is favorable to set a simple course. If you are planning on mountain biking, you need to be especially careful on the safety. Plan the course distance that you can accomplish, and it is better to make reservations for lodging in advance at the destination. The hiking companies have programs with the course set up according to the conditions of the day and hiking with others, so if you have a hard time for preparing alone, it is better to contact them.
