The North Korean government has granted Icelandic travel agency Trans Atlantic a permit for 35 visitors to the country over Easter, the first Icelandic-only group trip to North Korea.
Egill Arnar Arnarson Hansen, who works at the agency, told visir.is that the problem is that they currently only have 25 seats on the flight. “I am trying to find more seats, so we can fully book the trip,” he said.
The return all-inclusive trip to North Korea costs ISK 600,000 (USD 5,200, EUR 3,800). The group will visit the grave of Kim Il-sung, along with other sites.
Sixteen people have already signed up for the trip. The average age of passengers is between 40 and 55 years old.
