Join in with all the activities of this trip, with the peace of mind that you’ll be dropped off again at the same place. Don’t miss this amazing tour of history, culture and adventure, and meet some great friends on the way.
This is a very special trip to Darangee Village, a small sea village which is well known as an exceptionally beautiful and untouched place in Korea. This village is located in a part of the Hallyo Waterway (along the South Sea) which is a spectacular marine park filled with islands and strange rock formations rising straight from the ocean floor.
On Saturday, we will hit the sea with rafting, swimming, cliff diving and snorkelling (if you bring your own), you also can collect some sea creatures like sea cucumbers and abalon. Villager will teach us how to catch fish with bare-hands as well(Please bring a packed lunch to save our time to arrive at the village early to do all this activities)
And then we will participate in all their traditions, from plowing rice paddy fields with an ox, to planting rice in nice straight rows, by hand. We will keep providing freshest local cuisine including noodles, Korean pancakes(파전),Makgeoli(막걸리) and beer that are fed to the farmers to help them keep up their strength. We’ll have some races and competitions like catching mudfish and running with a garlic bag. First prize for the garlic bag race is a bag of garlic, the most famous product from this village. For those who are stressed at work, why not take it out on some rice as we pound it to make warm fresh rice cake. Rice cake is so much better when it’s still warm and knowing you helped make it, makes the taste even better.
In the evening we will be entertained by some Korean dances and music followed by a huge bonfire(Check the pictures above), these villagers go all out for this festival. Make sure to bring some marshmallows to share with your new AK and local friends.
To show their hospitality there will be some competitions between the locals and us, like a tug-o-war. They will prove they are good sports, whether we win or lose, we’ll be served snacks like roast potatoes and Makgeoli(Rice wine)
We will stay in homestays where overlooking the ocean and the local woman, most of them grandmas, will cook our meals. Perfect chance to try some delicious home cooked Korean food.
On Sunday, we will visit Dumo village for sea kayaking tour and deep sea fishing.
* It costs 25,000won each to do 2 hour Sea Kayaking tour and Deep sea fishing, and you will need to pay when you sign up.
If you want to head away from the sea there is also a hike up to the famous Mt Geumsan. it offers a great view of the surrounding area and breathtaking scenery.
You also can go to beautiful Sangju(상주) beach if you don’t want to join the water or hiking.
This little village tucked away at the bottom of the country is one of the staff at AK’s favourite places to visit. It almost feels like going home with the friendly welcome we get.
This trip will be a great chance for you to really get an understanding of Korean people, culture and customs, in an enjoyable way as well.
So why not gather some friends and join us to see the countryside at its most beautiful, and get away from the hustle and hassle of city life.
