At a glance

Victory Day is one of the biggest celebrations in the North Korean calendar and this tour is the best way to take it all in! We'll get to soak up the Summer weather in the DPRK and will be partaking in any celebratory events related to Victory Day. The Koreans are very proud to share this day with foreigners, so you will be expected to join in on the dancing and the fun!

You’ll be visiting the must see sites of Pyongyang city including the Korean War Museum (with its collection of American tanks!), the enormous bronze statues of the leaders, Kim Il Sung Square and much more. And of course, no trip to the DPRK is complete without a visit to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), where the country is separated from South Korea. Here we can explore ‘the most tense place on earth’ with a Korean People’s Army officer as our local guide.

Another major highlight is that we have included a rare trip up to Mt Paektu in the far north east of the country. We will charter a plane to get us to this extremely remote part of North Korea. In this are we will also visit the secret base camp where Kin Jong Il was born.

We’ve also been given special access to a Russian Mi17 helicopter to take for a whirl around Pyongyang city for a unique aerial tour of the capital.

We’ll swoop around the iconic, 105-story Ryugyong Hotel, do a low flyby of the Taedong River passing the Juche Tower, have a great glimpse of May Day Stadium – the world’s largest stadium, and explore the many districts sprawling across the city for fantastic and unique photography opportunities. This joyride is completely optional and is €250 per person on top of the tour costs. If you are interested please let us know while booking.

This is one of our most definitive trips to the DPRK and it usually books up so dont miss your chance!
