2018 North Korea Group Tours

Please see our remaining Group Tours for 2018 below.


Our group sizes are usually the smallest amongst agencies specialising in offering tours to the DPRK. In the very unlikely case of having 19 or more travellers we divide the group into two; each traveller with their own guides and vehicle.

Tour Extensions

Bike Tours in Pyongyang with KTG!

Pyongyang Bike Tours

We now offer you the chance to extend any of your trips in the DPRK and enjoy a bike tour through Pyongyang. This is a magnificent way of exploring the streets of Pyongyang and of interacting with locals. You can also join any tour and have a private extension outside of Pyongyang.

Train vs Plane

We strongly recommend travellers to take the train at least once as it allows us not only to see more of the DPRK as we ride through rural areas and second tier cities, but it also gives us the chance meet Koreans who are leaving the country. Interacting, chatting and having drinks with them is always a fascinating experience. There are usually business people, sports teams, workers, soldiers and delegations on the train. Basically we have the chance to meet and chat with Koreans of all walks of life on the train, something much harder to do on the plane.

Application Deadline

Please apply by the application deadline at the latest, earlier if possible. Air Koryo currently do not always add extra flights on the same day so the earlier you apply for a tour the better in order to secure you a seat! If you apply after the application deadline we will be able to notify you within one business day if we can proceed with your application or not. Our partners can issue visas within 10 days before a tour departure but it can be hard to make transportation arrangements for late bookings so do please try to apply by the deadline!
