Young Pioneer Tours is an adventure travel company formed in 2008 and based in mainland China. Specialising in travel to North Korea, we are an adventure tour operator that provides “budget tours to destinations your mother would rather you stayed away from”.

We are renowned and rated as one of the best tour operators to the DPRK (North Korea) with our unparalleled experience, fun way of doing things, and most importantly, excellent relations in country; this makes us the best choice for your Korea tour.

As well as seeing the must see sights in Pyongyang and visiting the DMZ, we provide tours to various locations within North Korea.

Aside from the DPRK, we travel to a number of other destinations such as Iran, Cuba, China, Antarctica, Turkmenistan, Iraq, South East Asia and other former Soviet countries. All our tours are founded on the YPT ethos of fun, thrill seeking and adventure at a great price. All ages welcomed!

North Korea Travel Update: Tuesday 3rd March 2015

We are pleased to announce that as of today, the Ebola border restriction has been lifted and the DPRK is once again open to tourism.

The travel suspension, in place since the 24th of October 2014, prevented all tourists from entering the DPRK. This is no longer the case, and we are taking bookings as normal for all of our 2015 tours. This is excellent news, and we would like to thank everybody who has been in contact with us during the ban for their patience whilst dealing with their tour. We look forward to seeing you all in North Korea!
