Exploring Jeju Island on Foot(Nov 05- Nov 08)

Jeju International Airport

To our International CIKers, We have an upcoming opportunity to explore Jeju island on foot during a 3 night/4 day trip! There are so many things to see on the island including quaint villages, hiking trails, traditional divers, beaches, cultural heritage sites, and small inactive volcanoes. Many of these sites are connected by foot paths so we will be able to get to know more about Jeju island, and enjoy one another's company while walking at a leisurely pace. We are fortunate that this trip is hosted/sponsored by Jeju Olle Organization and includes guided tours with English speaking tour guides, hotel rooms(one person per room), transportation while on the island, and your breakfast/lunch. The only things you need to pay for are your airplane ticket to and from Jeju and your dinners/snacks. Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to spend a fantastic few days with new and old CIK friends while enjoying many wonderful activities and taking in the breath-taking scenery with the Jeju Olle Team! Special notes: Sorry to report there are only 10 spots and this trip is primarily focused on international CIKers in order to show the beauty of Korean Islands to them. Because we only have a few spots, we will select 16 international friends that are either following us on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube channel, or long-term CIK members. If you are interested in joining us, please be one of the international friends to follow us on social media and sign up via meet-up soon. We will notify international CIKers individually, by email, that they have been selected for this trip and provide a more detailed itinerary by August 31st.
