HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • 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.
Starting and ending in Port Moresby, The Kokoda Track trip is a guided trekking trip that takes 10 days. You will travel through Port Moresby, Goldie River, Alola and 5 other destinations in Papua New Guinea. The Kokoda Track is a small group trip which 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.

“Really enjoyed this tour. Itinerary was great. Pace was right, and our tour leader was amazing. Will definitely come back to Spain and Portugal again. Touring Morocco was great too, and very different from travelling in Europe. Had I done this tour as a single traveller it would have costed me a lot more, so got value for money as well. Will soon book my next trip. Recommended.”

Is this trip right for you:
