It is a trekking and hiking tour that takes 10 days taking you through Efogi, Port Moresby, Alola 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.
