FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Way off the beaten track: Adventures Abroad runs group tours to North Korea
North American tour operator leads guests on the route less travelled
Small-group-tour specialist Adventures Abroad Worldwide Travel is delighted to announce a brand new series of tours to North Korea, a landmark 'first' for the company, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. The new North Korea itineraries provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit one of the most secretive and intriguing countries in the world; an organized tour is the only way to visit the DPRK—there is no alternative.
North Korea is the second atypical destination to be added to Adventures Abroad's tour schedule in 2012; Iraqi Kurdistan has been offered since January and has since seen two successful tours conclude to rave reviews.
"How is it we can regularly put together 'off-the-beaten-track' tours that other operators can't? Because to us, it's familiar territory; Adventures Abroad has a quarter-century of experience creating and running tours to far-flung lands," said Product Manager Rick Unrau, who went on a reconnaissance trip to Iraqi Kurdistan before spearheading the project to create the itineraries. "We were among the first North American operators to run tours to Yemen the 1990s, then Libya, Iran and Syria when they were accessible, and our current schedule includes less-visited destinations like Indonesia, Colombia, Papua New Guinea, the Caucasus and West Africa. We are meticulous in our research and uncompromising when it comes to client safety. We know what we're doing."
With an emphasis on in-depth cultural immersion, Adventures Abroad's 350+ inclusive tours across 120 countries balance time spent at the popular, 'must-see' highlights of destinations with ample opportunity to experience their 'true' culture and nature. Adventures Abroad was recently recognized by National Geographic as one of the best travel companies in the world and has an extensive range of travel products that includes: Walking Tours, Active Adventures, Family Fieldtrips, Custom Group Tours, Budget Tours, Luxury Travel, Educational Tours for Students and customizable private tours.
