Visiting Alpaca World Korea in Winter
Oh, alpacas! Who can ever resist these adorable wooly creatures? If you haven’t had the chance to encounter these harmless cuties yet, then you can visit Alpaca World Korea. This is a popular attraction in Gangwon-do that’s open year round (except on Seollal and Chuseok holidays), and many locals love to visit during the winter season. That’s because the place transforms into a stunning winter wonderland, which solo, couple, and family travelers enjoy! Just take a look at these photos:
But aside from the magnificent winter sights in Alpaca World, here are some more things that you can expect:
1. Get up close with alpacas
Visitors of all ages — kids, especially — will love the experience of touching, feeding, and walking alpacas. They are very tame creatures, and I guarantee that you will feel at ease and fall in love with them instantly! Alpaca World Korea does a good job of grooming their alpacas as well as providing a suitable facility for them (guests included!), so you can tour the attraction with no worries.
2. Get on the Alpaca World safari train
For a more memorable time, you can also try the mini safari train in Alpaca World Korea! While you’d have to pay an extra fee of around ₩3,000 to take this ride, it will be worth it since it will give you a small tour of the place and a nice feeding experience! The alpacas will also run to you as soon as they hear the train, so expect a really fun experience!
3. Meet deers, owls, and camels, too
Yes, Alpaca World Korea also houses other animals, such as deers, owls, ostriches, parrots, eagles, rabbits, and camels. According to the attraction, this helps visitors destress and open the flow of positive thoughts, so if you ever need to take some time off, do consider visiting!
How to Get to Alpaca World Korea Tour from Seoul: Cheap & Convenient Tour
If you’ve already done some research on the ways you can get to Alpaca World, then you may have seen a couple of blogs saying that it’s difficult to get to the attraction by public transportation. While it’s not exactly impossible, I’d have to agree that joining a tour or having a guide is really more preferable. Getting to Gangwon Province from Seoul easy, but getting to Alpaca World Korea (and other places) from the train and bus station is the challenge.
