Join a tour that is officially licensed by the UNC (United Nations Command). Led by an enthusiastic and informative expert guide, learn about the history of the Korean DMZ with a visit to the Joint Security Area (subject to changes) where you can see North Korean forces up close. Get the chance to wear a JSA military uniform and enjoy a Korean traditional lunch during the tour.
Please Note: The DMZ/JSA is subject to sudden closures by the United Nations Command (UNC) due to various military activities and security reasons. Alternatives and refunds will be offered for confirmed bookings at the event of cancellation. You can visit other areas of the Korean demilitarized zone with Korea DMZ Tours.

If the DMZ is unavailable, you can still get close to the border with a Northern Limit Line Tour.

In 1953, Panmunjom was the site where the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement took place to end the Korean war. The site was also an important place for meetings and negotiations between both sides but has since become a popular tourist attraction due to its rich historical significance.

The Third Tunnel is one of several infiltration tunnels under the North-South Korean border. Running through bedrock, it is believed to have been built by North Korea aiming to spring a surprise attack on Seoul.
