Push the boundaries with a holiday to North Korea
Unrivalled access to one of the world’s most secretive countries
With nature putting on a spectacular show of colourful bright orange, yellow and brown hues, set against a backdrop of majestic mountains, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in the Lake District, but this is not Derwent Water - this is Mount Myohyang, North Korea. The only giveaway to the destination is a few brightly coloured pagodas that penetrate the dense woodland.
North Koreans are naturally friendly and inquisitive by nature and you will find both them and their astonishing country - containing everything from ancient Buddhist temples to quirky museums and stunning scenery - fascinating.
An experience like no other
A break in North Korea is perfect for experienced travellers looking for a truly unique experience. You won’t find any package holidays or all-inclusive resorts here, but you will find one of the most fascinating countries on earth. The vibrant capital city of Pyongyang offers beautiful public parks, while the Koryo Museum plays host to rare artefacts from the Koryo Dynasty. Of course, you can’t visit North Korea without seeing the infamous demilitarized zone. Heavily fortified on both sides of the border, you’ll be able to peer across the layers of razor wire fencing into the eyes of the stony-faced South Korean guards on the other side. Tourists can literally walk just a few metres from the demarcation line which marks the point where the north meets the south, something most North Koreans will never get to do.
Explore with an experienced guide
All North Korean holidays are accompanied by an experienced English speaking guide who has visited the country many times before. You’ll be in a group with other like-minded travellers and you’ll get to access areas that most Western travellers never get to see. You’ll learn how this fascinating country came to be in existence and if you’re fortunate enough to visit during the Arirang Mass Games, you’ll get to see one of the most spectacular gymnastic events anywhere in the world.
We offer a range of handpicked offers on luxury hotels in this fascinating country. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to experience a truly astounding holiday - whether you go to the capital Pyongyang or elsewhere, North Korea is one place you will never forget.
