There is no independent travel to North Korea, and all trips must go through government agencies such as the Korean International Travel Company (KITC). We’ve included links to all government travel websites, as well as to private companies providing culture exchanges, or something different to just holidays in North Korea.


National Tourism Administration

Or as thus that know them through tourism – the NTA. The direct agency below government for tourism in North Korea. A very good looking website by North Korean standards with a lot of information about tourism in the country, in addition to details and links to the 6 state travel agencies.

Korean International Youth and Children’s Travel Company

KIYCTC is technically a travel company that deals with youth, but in reality acts as the second most important state travel agency behind KITC (why KITC does not have its own website is anyone’s guess).

Air Koryo

There are many imitation websites masquerading as the official state airline of North Korea, but this is the real one. You can see schedules and purchase flights here.


Young Pioneer Tours

One of the largest & most experienced travel agencies devoted to North Korea, with by far the widest range of destinations on offer to the DPRK.

Visit North Korea

A travel agency that is geared more towards educational and cultural exchanges to North Korea.

Choson Exchange

A great organization, although tough to decide whether to label them as a cultural, business, or travel website as they run many programs in the DPRK.
