Enjoyable ride with awesome view along the way. Love how they did up the tunnels. Came with my 11 year old and he enjoyed himself tremendously. Highly recommended but hold on tight to your belongings while going downhill.

It's an eye opener looking at a different sight of Korea apart from the usual touristy spots.

I booked a day trip with Trazy - Seoul Vicinity: Nami Island + Gangchon Rail Bike + Petite France Day Tour so getting around wasn't a problem for us, in fact it was easy and hassle free. Highly recommended to book with Trazy.

Back to our experience on Gangchon Rail Bike, you can decide to choose a two-seater bike or four-seater bike. Two-seater is priced slightly higher but if its just the 2 of you, it's more comfortable having your own conversations and riding at your own pace.
Something like riding a bicycle but you are seated on a chair with a shelter at the top! I think it's suitable for anybody and all will enjoy this activity as it is not taxing. If you're heading to Korea, you should plan a day for this! :)

Came over to the Gangchon Rail Park with my mum, and we booked this tour using Klook. We were offered the option to go with the VR goggles so that we can sort of have a in game experience while we cycle along the rail park. But please don't go for it if your purpose is to enjoy some mother nature.

Obviously my mum and I oped out from this VR experience and we didn't regret it! The view we got to see along the way was way beyond awesome, and it was really a good workout for both of us to cycle :)

Some key highlights that you will encounter:

1) Traffic will be slow, as they release the tourist in bulks, so all will set out at the same time, so there will be instances where the rides will get slower due to congestion

2) There are some interactive tunnels, where they play really techno songs, fancy lights and bubbles

Overall, this is an interesting family bonding activity if you would like to give it a shot!

Gangchon rail bike park is about 2 hours subway ride from Seoul. The activity is rather unique and the scenery after the third tunnel was amazing. The 3 tunnels are different in the way they decorate the tunnels. The 3rd tunnel is a VR tunnel, which we did not managed to get the devices for it, nonetheless, the 3rd tunnel is still amazing without the VR experience.

Bought tickets for this off klook. All in all a pretty decent experience. It was a very easy and chill ride with quiet and calm surroundings, hence it's nice to just take in the scenery and fresh air. Wished the trail was abit longer though.

We came here as part of a Klook day tour. It was pretty cold the past couple of days so even though we took the 12pm time slot, I still froze my butt off doing this ride.

The scenery was nothing much to shout about. However the rail park has put in quite a bit of effort especially with the tunnels to make it more interesting.

We were caught behind slow traffic, i.e. other tourists who seemed really keen on getting their money's worth. It took me a while to get used to this but soon appreciated that going slow can be quite enjoyable too.

We transferred to the 'Romantic Train' halfway through to get to the end. There were some street food stalls and a heated tent available while we waited for the train to arrive.

Recommended!

I did a daytrip, with this, Nami island and Garden of morning calm (at night). It's a fun thing to do. The trail is 8,5km but a lot of it is automatic so you don't have to peddle. All the tunnels you pass through have a theme. And in the end you'll seethe river and mountains, beautiful!!

If you want to do the rail bike and enjoy some lovely scenery then you have to go at the right time when it is more beautiful because if not, it will be quite boring doing the bike and no scenery. You take the rail bike (in twos or fours) then go round a certain route. There will be some tunnels to go through and they try to make it interesting by having loud music in the tunnel or lights.

An enjoyable ride with fascinating view of nature for Gangwon-do. Takes more than 1 hour from city with train. A briefing in English would make it perfert.

Where else can you ride a bike safely with so much fun with your family or partners or friends and in such a beautiful countryside? (You could do this even if you can't cycle) We were there on a cold winter morning, but we quickly forgot about the chill as we settled into the 6 km journey. Worth a trip - only about an hour trip from Seoul.
