Seorak Granfondo takes cyclists on an unforgettable tour of Seoraksan National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve renowned for its natural beauty and diverse ecosystems. Each twist and turn of the route reveals panoramic vistas that will leave cyclists awestruck and inspired.

Seorak Granfondo isn't just about the scenery; it's about the challenge.

Whether you're aiming for a personal best or simply relishing the joy of the ride, Seorak Granfondo offers a supportive atmosphere where participants push themselves to new heights while forging lasting friendships with fellow cyclists.
