What you can expect

Uncover the history of the time-worn struggle between North and South Korea at the political divide known as the Demilitarised Zone. Travel the lengthy Third Tunnel and glimpse North Korea from the Dora Observatory. Indulge in a local meal and visit an amethyst or ginseng centre for souvenirs.

Leave your hotel and travel towards historic Imjingak, built in 1972 as a tribute to those who were separated from their homes and families. Explore this park, which houses a complex filled with war relics and represents the continued hope for a reunion of the two Koreas.

Marvel at terrain that is now sanctioned as a lush sanctuary for plants and wildlife. During your stop at the Dora Observatory, you can see the small village that actually inhabits the Demilitarised Zone, and steal a quick glance at the military forces of North Korea that lie just across the border.

Enjoy a warming meal at a local restaurant before visiting the Amethyst Center, full of glimmering stones, or the Ganghwa Ginseng Center, where you can learn more about the medicinal uses and benefits of ginseng. Enjoy the ride back to your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle.
