After our previous sucessful trip, we are once again organizing a unique marathon trip to the Pyongyang Marathon in North Korea.
Above Borders is the first Danish travel company to arrange this spring trip. We provide you the opportunity to have a truly unique running experience for the Pyongyang Marathon in the world’s most isolated country! In addition, we guarantee that you will gain deeper insight into North Korean culture, where you get to interact with local North Koreans as well as experience the beauty of East Asia in springtime.
On the trip, we will visit one of the most intense military areas in the world, where both South and North Korean soldiers stand guard, and we will greet North Korean schoolchildren who may have never heard of Denmark. You can also look forward to North Korean cuisine, which offers many delicious dishes and traditions. In short, we promise that the tour will give you lots of interesting and thought-provoking experiences that you can hardly wait to share with your friends and family when you return to Denmark.
Please note: It’s not a requirement that you run an entire marathon. You can choose between 5 km, 10 km, half marathon or marathon.
