Autumn in South Korea

Spanning the months of September, October, and November, autumn in Korea is the most magnificent of the country’s seasons. This is the time of year when you can count on brilliant blue skies, and a country bursting with every spectacular shade of orange, yellow, red, (and pink!) imaginable.

What to do in Korea in Autumn

From brilliant fireworks to glowing lanterns to cultural events, autumn in South Korea is packed with amazing festivals. It’s the ideal time to explore city streets, lose yourself in a field of pink muhly, trek up a mountain, or be astounded by a kaleidoscope of fall colours.

Best Autumn Day Tours in Korea 2023

Spectacular fall foliage, cobalt skies, and comfortable weather make autumn quite possibly the best season to take trips around Korea. Taking place for a few months each year, these day tours make it easy to get to some of the more challenging autumn hotspots in national parks and rural areas around the country – saving you precious time on your travels.

Some of these tours have extremely limited space and availability, so if you’ve got your heart set on a particular place, I recommend booking as early as possible.
