Additional Information :

  • The following options are more likely to be fully booked sooner: 2-seaters / 10am, 11am, 2pm, 3pm / Weekends
  • In case rail bikes of your choice are fully booked, we will first ask for alternative time slots. If the alternatives do not meet your convenience, we will issue a full refund.
  • Children above 3 years old are recommended to take his/her own seat for safety. Infants under 36 months may sit with an adult (on the lap), but note that insurance will not cover the extra person once you exceed the maximum number of people on a bike. (e.g. 4-seater bike for 4 adults with 1 infant -> insurance will NOT cover the infant)
  • 2-seaters and 4-seaters will depart separately: usually 4-seaters first, then 2-seaters. If you book one 4-seater and one 2-seater, you will not be able to ride together back-to-back. (Click for image)

Notes :

  • If you are taking public transportation from Seoul on weekends, leave at least 3 hours before your rail bike time. It may take up to 2.5 hours.
  • The free shuttle bus from the Finish Point (Gangchon Station) to the Starting Point (Gimyujeong Station) departs 5-10 minutes after getting off the rail bike. If you miss the shuttle bus, you need to wait another hour for the next bus. (The shuttle bus leaves Gangchon Station every hour, at around 20 minutes past the hour.)
  • Take care of your belongings. The staff cannot help you find if it was lost during the ride as the area is vast and Railbike is scheduled to run every hours.

How to Get There :

  • Subway is the easiest, quickest way to go : 4 minute walk from Gimyujeong Station (Gyeongchun Line), Exit 1 (Subway Route Search.)

Description

The Gangchon Rail Bike is a popular activity usually visited together with Nami Island, since the two attractions are located in Gangwon-do. It takes around 1 to 2 hours from Gangchon Rail Park to Nami Island by public transportation. If you wonder about how to get to Gangchon Rail Bike from Seoul, the best way is by taking the subway.

Gangchon Rail Bike allows visitors to pedal along the old Gangchon Rail Park track while enjoying the scenery of the lovely 318km Bukhangang River. You will be able to experience a piece of history when you travel the same route the Mugunghwa train traveled for a span of 70 years! The Gimyujeong Station course is approximately 8.5km long with the first section (6km) lasting around 50 minutes. After riding the first 6km, you will arrive at a transfer station where you will be able to take a bathroom break or pick up a snack from the cafeteria. From there, continue on a 20 minute romantic train ride so you are not required to pedal anymore! Once you arrive at the Gangchon Station, make sure to grab the free shuttle back to where you started.

Other than Gangchon Rail Bike, there are more rail park in Korea. Gapyeong rail park in Gyeonggi-do has often compared to Gangchon Rail Bike. If you are curious about how this Gapyeong Rail Bike vs Gangchon Rail Bike thing goes, why don't try both? Both offers different views yet as beautiful as one another.
