The Demilitarized Zone (also known as the DMZ) is the 4km-wide, 240km-long stretch of land separating North and South Korea. Expect barbed wire and electric fences from this unsettling buffer zone and have the chance to lookout onto this vast area of highly-contentious land. This tour will stop off at the most important areas of the DMZ and allow you a glimpse into the political tensions of these two politically-opposing countries and give you a deeper understanding of Korea's modern history.

DMZ Tour highlights

Imjingak Pyeonghoa-Nuri Park - once a safe space for refugees during the Korean War, you'll have the chance to learn about the people who traveled from North to South Korea during this tumultuous period of history.

The Bridge of Freedom - built to liberate 12,773 prisoners in 1953, the bridge was used by South Koreans returning home from the North.

The 3rd Infiltration Tunnel - built by North Korea as a means of invasion, you can enter part of this 1,635m-long tunnel.

Dorasan Observatory - undoubtably the most exciting part of this tour, you'll have chance to look across the border into North Korea using high-powered binoculars. You'll be able to see Kjong-dong (also known as Propaganda Village). This supposed collective farm was set-up by North Korea as a means of showing how good life is north of the DMZ, but in reality, it appears that no one actually lives there and the buildings are in fact empty shells. You can also see as far as Gaesong, North Korea's ninth-largest city.
