Pyeongchang, Gangwon – do, is the ‘Alps’ of South Korea, and may be reached within 60 mins from Seoul on the javelin line of the KTX high speed bullet train, come the start of The Games.
With four distinct seasons, and 70% of the country mountainous, winter sports are popular amongst Koreans.
Korea offers unique experiences on and off piste: 24 hour skiing available just 60-90 mins from Seoul; add a chance to step up into North Korea at the DMZ; enjoy Korean beef – a real ice breaker - Korean BBQ (inside, cooked DIY at the table!); skate away at the Grand Hyatt Seoul’s winter skating rink; enjoy a touch of K Beauty at a spa; Soju tasting to ward off the chillier winter temperatures; end the night at some of the trendiest nightclubs in the 24 hour capital of cool.
No need to be a strong skier either, there are numerous winter festivals and alternative sports, from ice waterfall climbing to ice fishing.
Whether you are considering corporate hospitality for the games, need an afternoon’s team building following a meeting, or are looking for an unusual incentive destination, Korea has the infrastructure and hotels to deliver exactly what you need.
