North Korea Adventure Tour
North Korea is one of the most isolated places on earth and one of the last bastions of Communism. We explore the outstanding natural beauty of its Kumgang Mountains, admire the flamboyant architecture of its socialist capital Pyongyang and stand on the border separating South Korea’s peninsula. This exciting adventure offers an unusual insight into the country’s political and ideological heritage.
- Pyongyang - Explore the capital, admire the socialist architecture and visit the Mansudae Monument, a tribute to Kim Il Sung
- Wonsan - Discover the beautiful scenery in this little visited region
- Panmunjon - Stand at the world‘s most fortified border
- Beijing - Visit Tiananmen Square and the incredible Forbidden City
What we say
Staff Member Simon Grove travelled on this tour in 2005.
"If you think you have seen it all, go to North Korea. Where else is there a country with communist dynasty, an iconic leader who has “passed away” but remains the “Eternal President”, cherished by the population. The architecture is grand and foreboding, the scenery is beautiful and the people are very proud. The travel experience is truly unique."
