We will then treat you to a traditional lunch – dak-galbi which will give you a taste of authentic Korean cuisine.
After lunch, we will take you to a farm in Namyangju where you will enjoy picking flavorful strawberries and can eat as many as you like!
Finally, on our way back to Seoul we will briefly stop at either the Amethyst or Ginseng Center, so you can grab some Korean treasures. Our Nami Island + Strawberry Picking tour is a fantastic opportunity to spend a lovely day outdoors and get in touch with nature!

If you’re looking to go for a lovely stroll, you’ve got a few different options. Walk along the Central Korean Pine Tree Lane where you will discover tall, beautiful pine trees and delightfully clean air. You can choose to go to the White Birch or the Tulip Tree Lane as well. There really is no way to go wrong here, as all the paths are gorgeous!
Do you love K-Drama? Then you probably know that the famous “Winter Sonata” was filmed here! You can follow in its footsteps and take a photo in the exact spot where the protagonists had their very first kiss!
Taste an iconic meal in Chuncheon – Dak-galbi lunch
After exploring Nami Island, you will work up an appetite for sure! The next stop on our Nami Island + Strawberry Picking tour is lunch. You will get to try a traditional meal – dak-galbi. This is one of the staples in Korean cuisine.
Dak-galbi is a stir-fried meal consisting of chicken bites, rice cakes, scallops, sweet potatoes, and gochujang-based sauce. It originated in the 1960’s and became a hit because it goes really well with all sorts of liquor, and is relatively easy to prepare. The meal is typically made spicy.
Chuncheon is the best place to try dak-galbi because this is the exact area where it was created, so recipes are still very close to the original.
If you are a vegetarian or do not tolerate spicy flavors, speak to your tour guide. They can get the restaurant to tone down the spice, or prepare a Bibimbap for you instead, which is just as tasty!
