Full description
In the morning, grab your passport and enjoy a comfortable drive from Seoul to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that has separated North and South Korea since the Korean War. Visit the site where North Korean spy commandos were first discovered and fought with Korean and US combined Special Forces. Learn about the history of this site from your expert guide. Stop at Imjingak Peace Park to discover war artefacts, artillery and military bunkers, then follow your guide along the DMZ's barbed wire fence past soldiers on drill. Pause for a delicious lunch of North Korean specialities, including barbecued duck and a range of vegetarian options.
After lunch, visit the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel to experience firsthand North Korea’s frightening, yet unrealized military ambitions. The tunnel was designed and dug for a stealthy, underground invasion in 1978. Stop at Dora Observatory to catch a glimpse of a North Korean propaganda village and faraway Kaesong City through powerful binoculars. Then take a short trek to the Odusan observation point, where you can see a real North Korean village just across the river border, while your guide explains the traditions of North Korean farming life.

At the end of the day, relax on a comfortable transfer back to Seoul.
