Travelling in North Korea

North Korea is a country like no other. Travelling in North Korea couldn’t be more different to travel in, say, France or the Bahamas. The main requirement here is an open mind. It takes a very inquisitive traveller to consider a North Korea trip — one who can deal with being accompanied by two local North Korean guides at all times, having your freedom restricted and being immersed in a truly unique way of life. But, there, you won’t look back. 

Organised fun

It might highly restrictive to be led around all day on a strict itinaery. Most of those who come to Rocky Road are not those who necessarily seek out group travel. However, a scheduled tour to North Korea can be the perfect holiday. Imagine a trip where you are brought to incredible places all day long, fed and informed and accompanied by two genuinely friendly locals with a bunch of like-minded travellers. They tell you when to get up, where to eat and where to go. No more stress reading the lonely planet and researching where to go online. There is no internet, everyone speaks to each other without phones at the table. You will get to know your fellow-travellers well as well as the guides, and, more importantly, the country. 

Where can I travel to?

North Korea travel is more open than ever before. It’s still a highly closed society but in the last 10 years more and more towns and places have become open to foreigners. Large cities like Hamhung, Sinuiju and Sariwon were very recently closed off. It’s not just Pyongyang when you visit North Korea. Travel to North Korea with Rocky Road Travel.
