Pyeongchang, South Korea, hosted the 2018 Winter Olympics. Since then, the area hasn’t seen the boost in tourism expected, but travelers still come for the snow and other great activities on offer.


Alpensia Resort is located in the Daegwallyeong mountain pass. It is divided into a winter sports area, golf village and resort area. The ski jump tower was used in the Olympics.


Yongpyong Resort has many different slopes, including the longest one in the nation. When the ski season ends, guests can enjoy golfing and extreme sports, like zip lining and the mountain coaster. During spring and fall, the mountains are perfect for hiking. They recommend taking the gondola to the peak and enjoying the fresh air as you hike down.


Something else to do here is to visit Jeonggangwon. It was established in order to preserve, research, distribute and promote the values and merits of traditional Korean food culture to the world. There is a food museum, hanbok experience and cooking lessons.


Every winter, for about a month, Pyeongchang hosts its annual trout festival. During it, you can go open-ice fishing, the main event, or tent fishing and bare-hands fishing for trout. There are also some fun activities like tubing, ice-skating and sledding.

Airbnb, International Olympics Committee Partner for Future Olympics Accommodations

Finding a hotel during the Olympic Games can be harder than launching a shotput across a bed of sand. Some host cities find themselves investing millions of dollars to construct new hotels just for the Games, which is a strain on resources and the environment, and can send the city into debt. In an effort to avoid these problems, Airbnb and the International Olympics Committee teamed up to offer accommodation to attendees during the next handful of Olympic Games around the world.
