About us

Above Borders promotes and creates meetings, dialogue, and understanding between people around the world. People who, under normal circumstances, would never meet. We are striving for a world where everyone has the best conditions to understand and accommodate one another. A world where there is more room for diversity and different ways of life and a greater understanding of different norms and opinions. We believe that unique encounters between people around the world can contribute to this.

At Above Borders, we strive for a world where there is room for diversity and multiplicity. A world where there is an understanding of different norms and opinions.

At Above Borders, we want to help establish unique encounters between people, and we do this by opening up to even the most isolated countries and regions in the world. That way, you and I get the opportunity to meet people who live in ways that are completely different from our own, and unique insights into communities that don’t look like anything we’ve seen before. We continuously share our experiences and stories and constantly develop and improve our local partnerships. Partnerships that we have developed and nurtured since Above Borders’ founding, which give us access to areas no one else has had – until now. We ensure that when you travel with Above Borders, attend one of our events or hear one of our stories, you will have an experience unlike anything else.

The history of Above Borders

Back in 2015 Jonas attended his first trip to North Korea. At that time, he had only heard of nuclear weapons, military parades and Kim Jong Un. The trip was different though and showcased a lot more than what the media presented. It is the culture, the people and the experiences. On his way back from North Korea, Jonas decided that even more people had to discover and learn more about the world’s most isolated countries – just as he did. In 2016, Jonas founded Nordkorea360 which eventually became Above Borders. Now, Jonas has been to North Korea 8 times, lectured several times and shared his experiences on both TV and Radio. Currently, Above Borders arranges tours to North Korea, Russia and Turkmenistan. In the future, even more destinations will be possible to explore and you can join!
