Perfect for those wanting to discover North Korea in more detail, our Pioneering North Korea tour offers travellers a truly unique experience in a secret world. Chartering an aircraft to€cess some of the lesser, rarely and almost never visited areas, this 18 day tour reaches many places other tours and travellers do not. After an in depth tour of the fascinating capital we take in Panmunjom and the DMZ before taking a chartered train to Mt. Myohyang. Returning to Pyongyang for a national holiday the adventure steps up as we depart on a chartered aircraft to Mt. Paekdu, the highest peak in Korea. From Paekdu we fly onwards to the North East with an overnight in Chongjin before flying on to Hamhung. Parting with our aircraft in Hamhung we spend the next week slowly overlanding back to Pyongyang via Wonsan, Mt. Kumgang and Masikryong. This Pioneering Tour is highly regarded, with the 2014 departure being selected by Wanderlust Magazine as one of their “50 Top Trips” for 2014. Hilary Bradt, founder of Bradt Travel Guides, joined the 2016 departure of this tour, and articles on her trip will be featured in various publications over the coming months.
