The Alpaca World is located at around 120 km from Seoul. It will take about 2h to get there. Going there by public transport is not very easy. Hence we recommend to take you car or join a tour group.

You can join different tours organized by tourism organization. The advantage is that everything is included in the price (bus, entrance ticket) and sometimes it is linked with other attractions nearby.

  • We recommend the Alpaca World + Garden of Morning Calm / Nami Island for less than KRW 70,000: book here with Klook
  • Another fun option, is to combine the strawberry farm, snow sled in winter and Alpaca world. This tour costs about 80,000 KRW with Trazy. Book here.

If you have a car, going to the Alpaca World will be very easy. It takes about 2h to get there. When you arrive at the Alpaca World, park at the bottom of the hill and take the free shuttle bus up the hill. From there purchase your ticket and enter the park.

The advantage of going there by car, is that you can explore other attractions nearby, such as the Garden of the Morning Calm or Nami Island at your own pace.

By public transport:

Make your way from Seoul to the Namchuncheon Station which lies on the Gyeongchun line. Getting to this station is similar as getting to Nami Island subway station. 

From Namchuncheon station there is a bus (bus #3) going to the Alpaca World, but the bus only runs 3 times a day. At 8:50 / 12:20 / 16:10. The bus will stop at the Alpaca Farm parking lot. From there take the free shuttle bus to the entrance of the Alpaca World. 

Note that taking the public transport to visit the Alpaca World is not the easiest and fastest option, and the buses are limited…

Hike up the hill on one of the trail

There are some pleasant walk in the park. Choose your trail and hike up the hill to admire the view of the surroundings. It’s beautiful. There are a small rest area at the top. We went there in the summer, hence a short break in the shade was exactly what we needed.

Feed the Deers

After completing the trail, head to the deers area. You can buy some biscuits before entering the enclosed area and feed the deers. It’s a great experience.

Check out the big Camel

To our surprise, we suddenly came face to face with a Camel. The Camel is very big and stay on the side of the hill.
