Volunteers

Jeju Olle started out as a personal project, but it today is led by thousands of volunteers. They guard the 425km long trail and listen to the stories told by those who walk. Volunteers also help running programs on the trail. They are the ones creating the tomorrow of Jeju Olle.




Olle Trail Ranger

Maintenance of the 425km long trail is not an easy job, even for Jeju Olle’s professional explorers. They mow the grass every day, but there still is grass everywhere. Trail signs break by the wind and people. Olle Trail Rangers walk with the explorers two to three times a month to look after the trail and visitors.

Jeju Olle Academy Alumni Association

Jeju Olle Academy offers educational programs that explain every bit of Jeju’s cultures to draw better understanding. More than 2,000 alumni take part in the Jeju Olle Trail maintenance. They’re also running the daily ‘Guided Walk’ project, which involves walking the trail with Olle hikers non-stop for 365 days.


Jeju Olle Trail Finisher’s Club

As the name suggests, Finisher’s Club is a group of people who have put every step forward to finish Jeju Olle Trail. Those who finished earlier help newbies by sharing travel information. They also support smooth operation of all events on the trail.


Bellegi Ganse

‘Bellegi tong’ in Jeju dialect means a unique child and ‘Bellegi Ganse’ is the name for volunteers in their 20s and 30s. They host the ‘Jeju Olle, Walking Together’ event on the fourth week of every month and communicate with Olle hikers at major events. Bellegi Ganse’s activities are sponsored by NXC.
