Thinking of visiting Jeju Island this spring? If so, you should consider staying at the beautiful Haevichi Hotel & Resort located in Seogwipo which, after all, offers well-managed rooms, stunning views of the beach located right by the estate, pools, hot tubs as well as bang-for-the-buck food and beverage selection. Until the end of May, it is also offering a seasonal program exploring the island’s greenery and blooming scenes of wildflowers guided by experts.
There are 3 different courses offered with the Spring Explorer program. The first is the themed forest walk, which will take you on a trek around the Mulyeongari-oreum wetlands. From luscious green forests to vast flower meadows, the trek includes 6 themed forest walks. This is set to happen every Monday and Thursday. The second is the Gotjawal Forest eco-trekking offered every Thursday and Sunday. Gotjawal, a portmanteau of "forest" and "thicket" in the Jeju dialect, is an area created with volcanic rocks. Finally, there are 2 treks that will take you up the Keunsaseumi Oreum (elevation 475m) and Yeongju Mountain (elevation 326). The Keunsaseumi Oreum course will offer magnificent views of the wide open ranches and vast canola blossom fields located afar. Along the the trek to Yeongju Mountain, you will be able to discover the unique ecosystem thriving within the slopes of the Halla Mountain as well as Seongsan Ilchulbong (Sunrise Peak) and even Udo Island. This course will take place only on Sundays. All courses will include a bag containing a light snack bag of fruits and water. Each program will cost 20,000 won per person.
