DESCRIPTION

Jeju Island, Korea’s largest island, is only an hour flight south of Seoul. As a result of its isolated location and romantic tropical image, Jeju has become a favorite retreat with honeymooners and tourists. Because the island was formed by volcanic eruption, a landscape of striking contrasts was created.

“Olle” is the Jeju word for a narrow pathway that is connected from the street to the front gate of a house. Hence, “Olle” is a path that comes out from a secret room to an open space and a gateway to the world. Like ‘Camino de Santiago’ in Spain or Shikoku Pilgrimage ‘Ohenro’ in Japan, JejuOlle hopes all walkers who explore the routes gain “peace, happiness and healing” on the road.
