North Korea Travel & DPRK Information

Specialists in promoting North Korea Travel, at KTG DPRK Tours & Information we organise tours to one of the world's most secretive and less visited destinations in the world; the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK, commonly known in the West as North Korea).

People of North Korea

Our aim is to allow people discover this fascinating and captivating country so as to increase the level of interaction between the DPRK and other countries.

Going to North Korea is not something done frequently and it is our top priority to ensure that you make the most of your experience in the DPRK whether going with a group or individually.

Whether it is because of the impressive personality cult to the country's Leaders, its 1970s style buildings combined with a feel of a 1950s China, its unpolluted sceneries, the warmth of its people or the colossal communist monuments in Pyongyang, a trip to the DPRK will be an unforgettable one. The vast majority of our customers simply describe it as being the most interesting place they have ever been.

We are aware that there is great interest in North Korea Travel and that many people are fascinated by this mysterious country but simply feel that there is not enough information out there. As a result we provide tours as well as a variety of information related to the DPRK. By doing so we feel more people will have the chance to visit the DPRK. This in hand will increase the potential number of people deciding to work, cooperate and having cultural exchanges with North Korea, ultimately benefiting locals.

Our Tours

When it comes to our North Korea Travel philosophy, our goal is to increase contact with locals as much as possible, arranging visits not only to the main highlights of the country but also to places that show what life is like in North Korea and that allows for interaction with Koreans. Examples are visits to cooperative farms where you can see where farmers live and work, schools as well as places where Koreans mingle, allowing our travellers to see how they live and to join them in some of their leisure activities.
