Welcome to Young Pioneer Tours. The budget North Korea tour operator.

Welcome to Young Pioneer Tours, the first company to offer budget tours to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Back in 2007 we were just like you; interested in seeing what one of the world’s most secluded countries had to offer, learning something about the country, and of course marking it off the list as having ‘BEEN VISITED’. Most people who visit the DPRK say that it was the best travel experience of their lives (for us it was), and our promise is to make this your reality.

Since being formed we have taken hundreds of people to this most unique of places, both independently, and through our legendarily fun group tours, and as such not only have a great understanding of the country, but enjoy flawless relations with our partners in Pyongyang.

Every company has their own ethos and demographic, and for us it taking people on a great tour that does far more than just show around a few designated sites, but to show the 'real' Korea, taking our guests to places other companies do not dare to. We know North Korea, and our tours deliver an unforgettable experience that will stay with you for life.

In our experience we also tend to have the youngest demographic of anyone currently running tours here, although we are not exclusive, young at heart is enough to qualify you as a Young Pioneer. All of our group tours are not only led by one of our western experts, who are all partners in the company, but all tours are capped at a MAXIMUM of 25 people, thus avoiding that being led round like cattle feeling. No following flags, no colour coded caps, and lots of flexibility with what we do. Those of us of a travel persuasion tend not to like group tours, and YPT understand that, we are group for people that do not like group tours. We are travelers like you, and we deliver a hell of a time.

Nothing stays the same forever, and the DPRK is no different, don't miss your opportunity to see it with us now.

North Korea Nuclear Test

It has just been reported that seismic activity has been reported in the area where the previous test happened, thus suggesting a third nuclear test from the DPRK.
