South Korea

Our favourite routes through South Korea

We tailor our holidays to suit you and your preferences - you call the shots, and we make it happen.
That said, there are optimal routes - paths which connect a country’s highlights, and itineraries that we’ve tried and tested over decades of travel in Asia.
You’ll find a selection of our favourite journeys below. Each works perfectly ‘out of the box’, but please don’t feel restricted by them, as they can all be adapted to include your preferences or omit the bits you don’t want. After all, it is your holiday!
