Biking on Korea's Jeju Island
Biking on Korea's Jeju Island
Jeju Island is the perfect vacation spot for bike riders! A 234 kilometer-long bicycle trail, appropriately named the Jeju Fantasy Bicycle Path, showcases the fantastic beauty of the island. The trail is broken down into 10 courses, making it easy for everyone to get a taste. If you have the time and energy, try and complete the full trail!
Rent a bicycle and purchase a stamp book
First things first, you’ll need a bicycle! Thankfully, the rental shop Bike Trip is located just a 10-minute walk from Jeju International Airport. Standard bicycles run at a rate of 30,000 won per day. Mountain bikes and road bikes are also available, although the rental rate will vary. If you’re planning on completing the full Jeju Fantasy Bicycle Path, you should also buy a stamp book here!
Select a course
The Jeju Fantasy Bicycle Path circles the entire island along the coast. Starting from Yongduam Rock, the trail shows popular coastal beauties such as Gimnyeong Seongsegi, Hamdeok Seoubong, and Pyoseon Beaches, Soesokkak Estuary, Seongsan Ilchulbong Tuff Cone, and Songaksan Mountain. Each of the 10 courses offers plenty to see. If you’re doing the whole 234 kilometers, be sure to take plenty of breaks, preferably at the stamp booths!

Ride off into the fantasy
You can start anywhere along the road, and go in either direction, but going in a counter-clockwise direction from Jeju International Airport to Iho Tewoo Beach is recommended. The best part of the Jeju Fantasy Bicycle Path is that you can enjoy the beautiful sea while you pedal along. The most popular section is the 60 kilometer stretch between Namwon Village and Gimnyeong Beach!
Have a safe trip!
- There are a lot of hills along the course; take care of your physical condition.
- It is hotter than you think during the summer months; riding in spring or fall is recommended!
- The Jeju Fantasy Bicycle Path is marked with blue guidelines; follow it at all times.
