Gangchon Rail Park

1383 Gimyujeong-ro, Sindong-myeon, Chuncheon, -do, Gangwon

The Basics

The 5-mile (8-kilometer) railway line runs alongside the Bukhangang River, where the scenery encompasses meadows, mountains, and riverbanks. Due to its proximity to Nami Island—home to top attractions such as Petite France and the Garden of Morning Calm—Gangchon Rail Park often is included as part of a day trip from Seoul; tours typically include round-trip transportation and lunch. Alternatively, you can reserve your seats for the Gangchon Railbike to avoid disappointment on the day.
