It’s no secret that I’d love to visit North Korea in the near future.

There’s something about this isolated coutry that has me wondering what a trip there is like. Based on what I’ve read and heard, the trips are quite- shall I say unique since more or less, every move you make is watched since you have to travel with a chaperone.

Some popular trips to North Korea are to visit during holidays & events like the Mass Games and others visit to run the North Korea Marathon.

Here is a totally new way to visit North Korea.

Uri Tours wants you to Catch the Next Big Wave and learn how to surf in North Korea!

They will be hosting an 8-day surf camp and expedition with a “trip led by Nik Zanella, official representative of the International Surfing Association and current coach of the Chinese National Surf Team AND Andrea Lee, North Korea expert, and Uri Tours Founder and CEO“, (according to Uri Tours).

The trip will set you back $2,400 (double occupancy) and includes roundtrip Air Koryo flights to/ from Shanghai., DPRKvisas, hotels, meals, sightseeing and instruction.

Some Highlights:

  • Learn to surf from a top instructor
  • Get a practical 101 in bathymetry mapping from Nik who is the only person to have mapped the entire China coast“.

  1. For the love of God, don’t do this! I was born and raised in a country that very much resembled North Korea. In fact, the local dictator took his inspiration from North Korea!

    I’m begging you not to do this. Find any other destination and find anything else to do with your time and money rather than spend them in a way that will allow that ruthless regime to survive another day. Make no mistake – they’ll take every last penny that you’re going to spend in that country since they’re so starved for money.

    Thank you.

  2. Laura Banio- Thanks for the info and concern. While I don’t plan to learn to surf in North Korea I really would like to visit the country someday. I hear you when it comes to monetary gains going to the government but I am still curious to visit and see what the country is like in person.
