Amphibious ATV (Inje)
Amphibious ATV experience is available in Argo experience center in Inje county. Argo experience center is run by agricultural association of Namjeon-ri in Inje. They started to have amphibious ATV crafts since 2006. Coincidentally, there was a massive flooding in Inje in 2006 and these ATV crafts (called as “Argo”) moved around to save flood victims and deliver relief goods.
With 8 wheels, Argo can ride over the steep uphill road, bumpy pebbled road and even the pool. And of course in the water, Argo is floating like a boat and generates the power by wheel spinning.
