Given that 70% of Korea’s terrain is mountains, it’s not surprising that skiing and snowboarding are popular there. Gangwon-do is the most popular region for winter sports, but there are also ski resorts near Seoul and in Central Korea. People also travel from across the globe to learn Taekwondo in a traditional setting, and there are programs such as the Namsangol Hanok Village Taekwondo Experience geared to foreigners wishing to learn this martial art.
You don’t need to be an athlete to enjoy Korea. Korea’s attractions and events cover a broad spectrum and there are bound to be activities that suit every taste and budget – from Gyeongbokgung Palace, to the Muju Firefly Festival, to the National Folk Museum, to the Uponeup Wetland, and the Busan Film Festival, there is something for everyone.
Numerous airlines fly to Korea from Canada. Seoul is served by two passenger airports, Incheon (ICN) and Gimpo (GMP.) Incheon is far and away South Korea’s busiest airport with over 300 flights arriving and departing daily on airlines such as Air Canada, Continental, Delta, Etihad, Lufthansa, Japan Air Lines,and Korean Air, as well as many international and regional carriers. Korea has several other international airports including Busan (PUS), Cheongju (CJJ), Jeju (CJU), Muan (MWX), and Yangyang (YNY) which mainly serve domestic and regional flights.
If you are going to Korea to ski, winter is the obvious choice of when to visit. Book well in advance as flights and accommodations for the popular ski areas sell out quickly. The peak of the ski season is December through February, but most ski resorts remain open through March which can be a good time to book if you’re hoping to snag a bargain or avoid the crowds. Summer is hot and very humid, so the best time for sightseeing trips to Korea is in the fall from September through November.
