Why not when there are so many options!

Ever thought about Glamping in Korea? There are tons of options if you fancy a night of luxury camping, sipping a glass of wine under the stars by campfire.  However, most tend to be in Korean which makes it difficult for us waygooks to book in advance! We’ve complied a few options for glamping in Korea.

Here’s our guide to Glamping in Korea 101.

 


Raventree Glamping Resort

We spent the night in Raventree for our 10 year anniversary around April time.  The weather was beautiful and the location was the perfect getaway to enjoy a romantic night in the peaceful countryside.  As you will see the price for Raventree is above average for a typical glamping experience, but sometimes it’s ok to splash out for a special occasion.

What you can expect from Raventree…

Glamping in Korea

A little on the pricy side but well worth it, Raventree Glamping Resort offers beach views, mountain air  or a historic setting depending on your preference.  Well equipped tents with comfy double besd, private decking, cooking area and state of the art furnishings; this is sure to be a camping experience you won’t forget.

Each tent at Raventree offers spectral views across the country side.  This picture was taken at Gapyeong, set high up in the hills you enjoy the beautiful quiet surroundings away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities.

No make-shift camp fires here!  Each tent comes with it’s very own modern campfire and cooking kit to make it a truly luxurious experience.

A little added bonus offered at Raventree is breakfast delivered to your tent.  Cozy up with the other half and enjoy breakfast at sunrise.

In our opinion Raventree was great and we loved the romantic private tents offered here.  The breakfast was not worth the money and we would definitely pack our own next time but it is somewhere we would go again for a special occasion.

I would say Raventree had a foreign feel to it with modern equipment, “American Style” breakfast (not American at all) and no underfloor heating.  This is maybe the reason why it is somewhat overpriced compared to other glamping resorts in the area.

Florence Glamping

A little more affordable and definitely worth the money, Florence Glamping offers a unique Glamping experience for half the price of Raventree.  We spent the night here with friends for my 32nd birthday.  While Florence is still very much for families, offering family tents, it is also a great place to get away with a group of friends to enjoy the countryside.

Like most Korean Style Glamping in Gapyong, Florence is a little difficult to find on your own.  Luckily if you contact the reservation number available you can arrange pick up from the subway or a near by location.

Glamping in Korea

Florence Glamping would be considered more Korean style in that you have underfloor heating in each tent, cooking utentials, electric cooking range and even a kimchi fridge (no just kidding).  Compared with Raventree the tents at Florence Glamping are much more spacious but a little less luxurious.

Glamping in Korea

Each tent has it’s own private decking, outdoor seating area and brick campfire.  While you can sit right on your decking and enjoy your campfire at Raventree, here you must bring your chairs to the campfire a few meters away from your tent.  A little less private in my opinion.

Logs come at an extra cost but are well worth it for that magical camping feel at night time.  Don’t forget the marshmallows like we did!!

It does get a little cold at night in the mountain areas so make sure to pack your thermals or cozy blankets for when the fire starts to die down.
