KTG - North Korea Travel & Information

Specialists in promoting tourism in North Korea, at KTG 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).

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.

Our goal is to show you as many aspects of the DPRK as possible. We firmly believe that encouraging a maximum level of interaction with Koreans plays a vital role in our achieving this.

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.

We are the forefront of promoting unique forms of tourism in North Korea whether it be spending 3 weeks studying in Pyongyang, working with local farmers or exploring the streets of Pyongyang by bike (please check our Youtube video below to see what a bike tour in Pyongyang is like).

Our proximity to the DPRK allows us to travel there on a regular basis. We are also in daily contact with our Korean partners in China and this allows us to push for new forms of tourism in the country.

We work directly with Pyongyang and provide tours in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese... To communicate with us you can do so in English, French and Spanish as we have a strong multicultural team that will be able to deal with your enquiries.

December 24th is the Birthday of national heroine Kim Jong Suk (called Mother Kim Jong Suk in the DPRK). We were one of the first companies to arrange trips to the DPRK all year round thought all of December and January.

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.

About Us

We are in daily contact with our Korean partners in Pyongyang and have, over the years, earned their trust and built a solid relationship with them.

One of our goals is to maximise interaction with locals, something we believe is attainable with our small sized groups.

However, our enthusiasm and curiosity regarding any shape and form of North Korea travel remain boundless.

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.

We started arranging trips to Pyongsong, a "Satellite City" of Pyongyang, in 2013 which is when this mining city was opened to tourists.

We therefore try to show as many aspects of the DPRK as possible, covering issues such as updates, history and the economy of North Korea so as to allow our web viewers see the overall context of the country before visiting it. Regardless on whether you will travel to North Korea or not, we are always happy to answer any queries you may have regarding the DPRK.

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.

"The whole experience was actually even better than I thought, especially the Mass Games which I can’t even find words to describe." P. Simon - attending the Ocotober 10th Military Parade rehearsal "We had a very enlightening trip and were most impressed with how well organised it all was...and would not have changed anything..."
