Political isolation and authoritarianism, coupled with a historical distrust of foreigners in the country has made authentic tourism in North Korea a challenge to say the least. However, that has not made it impossible. Our team has worked in North Korea for over ten years on various projects related to tourism, exchange, humanitarianism, sports and film. While certainly still a challenge, we are working with dedicated individuals in North Korea to facilitate community-based and exchange-oriented tourism projects that focus on bringing people together to bridge the gap caused by decades of isolation. Never before has tourism been so important and so exposed in North Korea, and we are dedicated to providing both transparent and direct access to the country.
