If you're the kind of person who enjoys the great outdoors, you are in for a treat. There are 20 national parks in Korea for you to choose from, including three marine parks. The first designated national park also happens to be the largest, Jirisan National park (지리산국립공원) located in the southwest. Parks are home to a variety of wildlife, and have been kept in remarkably pristine condition. Korea is truly a hiker's paradise, but there are other activities that can be enjoyed besides hiking. For example, you can take part in watersports or visit ancient historic sites. At the Muju Resort (무주리조트), located in the Deogyusan National Park (덕유산국립공원) skiing can also be enjoyed. Overnight accommodation can be arranged within the parks, including hotels, camping, temple and farm stays.
