This cycling tour is organised in collaboration with Shangrila Adventure (SCT)

This Bikepacking Tour to Korea’s 4 Rivers Cross Country Cycling Road (or 4 Rivers Bike Path or Trail) is the most famous cycle route that stretches from Incheon in the north-west corner of South Korea, down to the beautiful coastal city of Busan in the south-east corner spanning more than 600 km. This cycling route is voted as one of the best bike paths in the world with a dedicated cycling path made just for bikes! 

Our cycling tour from Seoul to Busan follows these connected cycling paths known as the Ara, Hangang, SaeJae, and Nakdonggang bike pathways, tracing the country’s 4 major rivers: Han, Nakdong, Geum & Yeongsan Rivers, with additional routes along the coasts. Ranging from easy to challenging trails, this world-class cycle lane offers breathtaking views of mountains, rivers, farmlands, and many magnificent weirs, bridges, and parks.
