Escape the chaos of
Beijing over the Chinese
New Year Holiday!
Here’s your chance to escape the chaos of Beijing over the Chinese New Year holiday! Our Lunar New Year Tour includes a comprehensive city tour of Pyongyang as well as getting you down to the DMZ, where North and South Korea continue their decades-old face-off. You’ll also have the chance to venture into the beautiful countryside of Mt Myohyang when visiting the International Friendship Exhibition.
Our comprehensive city tour of Pyongyang includes must see sights such as the mausoleum of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, and the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum, as well as visiting more local places such as the bustling Kwangbok Supermarket, the only place in Pyongyang where tourists can use the local currency, and the local Mansugyo beer bar where you’ll get the chance to enjoy a variety of Pyongyang beers. This tour will be staying at the Yanggakdo Hotel, one of the deluxe standard hotels in Pyongyang.
It is also possible to add a 2-night skiing extension to this tour- come and join us on the slopes of North Korea’s only ski resort; Masik Pass. Please let your tour manager know should you be interested in adding the ski extension.

All our tours enter the DPRK by plane. But the default setting upon your return is the 24-hour international train from Pyongyang to Beijing. For an extra 50 EUR you can opt for the plane back instead. The flight takes around 90 minutes.See more
All hotel rooms on our all-inclusive group tours feature twin beds, and will be shared. If you'd like a room to yourself then you can upgrade for an extra 40 EUR per night. This rises to 50 EUR per night if you're on one of our marathon tours due to the shortage of rooms over this period.See more
If you are heading back to Beijing by train then this option lets you get off at Sinuiju, just before the border with China, and spend an extra 24 hours in the DPRK seeing the sites of North Pyongan province. It’s a great opportunity to see a rarely explored part of the country. You will then continue on through to Beijing.See more
Instead of immediately returning to Beijing when your tour ends you can take some extra time to visit this fascinating border city, which directly faces the DPRK town of Sinuiju, but lies on the Chinese side of the Yalu River. We offer both one-night and two-night fully guided extensions that take in all the sights of Dandong, with a special North Korea theme. Please note: US citizens cannot take the train out of the DPRK, but can do this extension by flying from Pyongyang to Shenyang (China), and we will get you to Dandong from there.See more
The DPRK’s ski season — yes, it has a ski season! — usually runs from December to March. Add on two extra nights to your winter tour and you'll have the rare chance to try out the nine main runs at Masikryong — the DPRK’s only ski resort. This place has been widely reported on, yet is not often visited. Sign up to this ski option, and be one of the first to experience it.See more
Why not take a helicopter sightseeing flight over the DPRK's capital? Grab this rare opportunity to tour the skies above the city in a 40-minute helicopter trip aboard an Air Koryo Mi-17 chopper. The flight offers an unrivalled view from above, and great opportunities for photos and video from a completely different angle.See more
