Full description
See where the fate of the world hangs in the balance on this afternoon tour to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). Travel from Seoul to Imjingak, only 7 km from the Military Demarcation Line. This town was built in 1972 in the hope that someday unification would be possible. Straddle the famous Unification Bridge and learn about the key sites of the DMZ, such as Dorasan Station, with your expert guide.

Venture into the Third Infiltration Tunnel dug by North Korea. Since 1974, four secret tunnels have been discovered crossing the Military Demarcation Line. They are believed to have been planned as a military invasion or infiltration route and each tunnel is large enough for 30,000 soldiers to pass through in an hour. Peer into the mysterious hinterlands of North Korea from the Dora Observatory.
