First travel agency to offer online holidays from Spain to North Korea since 2013
In summer of 2013, Destinia was also the first online travel agency to offer travel packages from Spain to North Korea. “We work with an incoming tour operators based in China. There are very few travel agencies approved to offer holidays there,” says Amuda Goueli, CEO of Destinia.
North Korea is a unique destination and the political regime demands compliance with very strict requirements. Photographers and journalists are not welcome, there is no access to Internet and tourists are always accompanied by two guides, following a strict itinerary without any possible changes.
