Itinerary Description:

This journey is designed with a spa and wellness focus, but like all Ker & Downey suggested journeys, the itinerary can be customized completely to suit your own travel wishes. Whatever you choose, your journey is sure to strike a balance between history, natural beauty, and personal well-being.

Begin your Korean Wellness Retreat in energetic Seoul. On arrival you will be collected from the airport for a peaceful evening at Orakai Songdo Park Hotel, and in the morning, you will have your first introduction to Korean spa culture. After your first Jjimjilbang experience, make your way to Jeju Island.

The WE Hotel Jeju Island welcomes you for two full days of exploring and relaxing. The hotel spa and wellness centers are yours to enjoy, all fed by the healing mineral-rich waters of the volcanic island. Get fresh air therapy while walking along the paths through the forests of pine and cedar surrounding the hotel. Venture farther afield to the scenic Olle Trail and hike the volcanic cone of Hallasan, the dormant volcano that has blessed the island with its healing properties. Your Ker & Downey guide will escort you to herbal farms and tea plantations where the secrets of nature's remedies are harvested, prepared, and enjoyed in traditional style.

On day five you will return to Seoul refreshed and rejuvenated. Your Korean Wellness Retreat continues at the stunning Seoul Dragon City hotel in the city's Yongsang district. Craft your days in Seoul with your Ker & Downey designer; the historic bend will find you behind the scenes at the National Museum of Korea and taking a private rickshaw ride through the narrow streets of the historic Bukchon Hanok Village. If beauty and wellness are your primary focus, you will thrill at the private tour and spa treatment with the docent of one of Korea's legendary beauty brands.

For all its glamour and gloss, traditional wisdom still informs the beauty and wellness practices of today. A temple cuisine experience and medicinal tea and liquor tastings will reveal how Korean traditional medicine promotes wellness from the inside out. And an afternoon with K-Beauty hair and make-up experts will leave you ready to show your face around town. Shopping tours in Lotte World Tower, South Korea's tallest building, plus delicious dining and nightlife options in Seoul keep you energized in the evenings. Customize your own South Korea journey with Ker & Downey.
