  • Trek the famous Kokoda Track the ethical way. We partner with a local cooperative that ensures local communities benefit directly from your visit.
  • Hear incredible tales of wartime courage from the local historian in Brigade Hill and meet a surviving PNG war carrier who aided wounded soldiers.
  • Hike up the arid spines of mountains and through valleys of lush rainforest, stopping to cool off in pristine rivers along the way.
  • Meet the people who live in this region, learn about the local cultures and contribute to these small and remote communities.
The Kokoda Track tour starts from and ends in Port Moresby. It is a trekking trip that takes 10 days taking you through Efogi, Ioribaiwa, Port Moresby and 5 other destinations in Papua New Guinea. The Kokoda Track is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

With dense greenery, difficult passes, glistening rivers and incredible views, it is hard to believe that the historic Kokoda Track was the site of one of the bloodiest battles for Australian troops in WWII. Discover the humbling history and remote beauty of the track on this 11-day adventure, with seven days of intense trekking through the Papua New Guinea mountains. Conquering the trail requires dedication, courage and mateship – just like it did over 70 years ago. With the guidance of your personal porter, trekking leader and a hardworking local crew to illuminate the wartime stories of the trail, this trip will see you testing your personal stamina on a journey through tiny villages and thick jungle.

“The trip was amazing. The tour guide Nathaly, she is very nice, kind and fun, she engaged with group and indeed was a part of the group. I really had fun. I just wished the trip included activities and all breakfast. But, for the cost it was worth it, you get what you paid for. Best trip ever and the group was amazing, we had fun together.”

Is this trip right for you:
  • While literature refers to the historic wartime track as 96 kilometres in length, today’s track measures roughly 165 kilometres including side trips and detours, which is the distance you will be walking on this tour. This equates to around 20 kilometres per day.
  • The physical challenges of the Kokoda Track are immense. Expect long, demanding days of hiking through steep, sometimes slippery terrain, often to points of high altitude and under a hot sun. You will be required to complete a Passenger Self-Assessment form for this trip, available from your booking agent. We also recommend you undertake a training program before you begin.
  • Due to the strenuous nature of the trek, the minimum age for this trip is 18 years old. Bookings for minors, even if accompanied by a parent, cannot be accepted.
  • The accommodation on the trek is basic and multishare, often in communal village huts or tents. Please note that you will be sharing a mixed gender sleeping space unless camping. Tents are provided and carried by your porter.
