North Korea

North Korea Holidays

The Korean war ended in 1953 and since then the Korean Peninsula has been divided by a demilitarized zone (DMZ) separating the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in the north and the Republic of Korea (ROK) in the south. Probably the most mysterious country in the world, sometimes known as ‘the Hermit Kingdom’, North Korea has historically been controversial and has shut out the rest of the world. By only periodically opening and closing its doors to foreigners, it consequently remains one of the world’s most inaccessible countries with few international friends. The country is therefore by no means an ordinary tourist destination.

Many travelers have asked us: is it safe to travel to North Korea? Our answer is: Definitely, why not? There is now a major change in the country’s circumstances under the new leadership of the youthful Kim Jong-un, and visiting North Korea now will be a really safe and enjoyable experience. With our specialists having organized countless North Korea Tours, you will be offered valuable advice to tailor a perfect trip to this isolated but interesting country.
