Only 2,600 foreigners visited North Korea last year.
Now it’s your turn.

Is it really safe to go to North Korea?

North Korea is completely safe and totally legal to visit – even for Americans!

Each year, over 2,500 people visit the country from the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other countries around the world.

And yet since the country opened up to outside visitors, only a handful of people have experienced the rare gift of visiting this reclusive nation. That makes North Korea one of the least visited countries on earth – and one of the most magical places still untouched by the outside world.

When I decided to visit North Korea, my friends thought I had finally lost it, but they weren’t surprised. I travel a lot, and looked to completely change the paradigm of trips to something unique. The DPRK was that for me. It was a life experience that brought a bond with foreigners who decided to travel on this crazy journey. The photos I took circulated several large websites and serve as treasured memories. And my stories at get togethers are the stuff of legend.

What you will do in North Korea

Every time we visit North Korea, we get this crazy traveler’s high.

It’s the kind of high you can only get by being somewhere so off the grid – and yet completely safe at the same time.

North Korea – also known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) – is one of the last untouched places in the world. It’s a country stuck in time, outside of the system — “a small planet,” in the words of one author. True story.

We think North Korea is a strange, beautiful, exotic place. There’s no country like it. There’s a reason we go back there every year.

  • Unique leisure and entertainment experiences

North Korea is not for you if…

  • You’re looking for a traditional resort vacation without any surprises
  • You’re uninterested in experiencing a totally different world from the one you live in
  • You want photos, memories and stories of the same places your friends have been
  • You’d rather stick to the places that travel books and PBS specials tell you to go
  • You are willing to pay a high price for a predictable vacation

On the other hand, if you’re looking for a truly original experience, a safe and exciting adventure unlike any other, in a place that only a handful of foreigners have ever laid eyes upon, then you’ve come to the right place. You’ll be part of an elite group that has seen one of the least visited countries on earth.
