“The guide certainly knew the history of the area, and that was impressive to listen to. We did not find Kokoda a physical challenge. Trekkers need to understand the history of the place to really get value for money - don't be ignorant. Enjoy the porters, ask them questions, become friends with them - this was THE best part of the trek and we didn't have personal porters.”

Papua New Guinea - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Holidays to Papua New Guinea will take you to splendid coastline, smouldering volcanoes, green rainforests and rich tribal cultures. The country occupies the eastern part of New Guinea Island and hundreds of neighboring islands. A trip to Papua New Guinea is for the adventurers since the infrastructure is scarce and the terrain is rugged. Most of the mainland is mountainous, with vast areas covered by rainforests inhabited by many endemic wildlife species. Also, the country is rich in pristine beaches, coral reefs and wrecks surviving from the Second World War. It is a melting pot of history, diverse culture and languages!

Tour Highlights

  • Visit the Nature Park in Port Moresby and see kangaroos, birds of paradise, reptiles and exotic vegetation.
  • Learn the basics of the country’s cultural and natural diversity in the National Museum in Port Moresby.
  • Take a 96-kilometer long Kokoda Track hike from Port Moresby. The tour introduces mountain peaks, verdant jungles, rich wildlife, tribal culture and stories from the Second World War.
  • Discover wrecks of aircraft and ships from the Second World War near Rabaul, Madang and in Milne Bay.
  • Take a countryside tour from any region that reveals local wildlife, flora and magnificent nature. You will see birds of paradise, tree kangaroos, orchids and waterfalls along the way.
  • Take a journey to the Cultural Village of Goroka to see legendary Asaro Mudman. They are the warriors covered in gray mud that wear characteristic masks.
  • Attend traditional tribal festivals from May to October in rainforest villages to watch the tribesmen celebrating by dancing to the drum beats.
  • Enjoy great diving around Port Moresby, Milne Bay and Kimbe Bay and discover rich marine life, including whales, hammerheads and pygmy seahorses.

Travel Tips

  • Travelling in Papua New Guinea is a challenge due to limited infrastructure. Flying in small airplanes is how you get around to other towns. Don't let this dissuade you, Papua New Guineans are known to be welcoming and hospitable towards tourists. 
  • Internet is scarce and expensive. Buy a local SIM card to stay in touch with your loved ones.
  • Although English is one of the official languages, it is only spoken by 1% - 2% of the population. However, if you need help, try speaking English first. To be fair, Papua New Guinea has over 820 languages! 
  • Exchange money at Jackson’s Airport. You can use major credit cards in Port Moresby.
  • Don’t display wealth and keep a low profile to avoid trouble in major towns and cities.
  • Make sure to visit a doctor before the trip for a detailed medical advice.
