Papua New Guinea Off the Beaten Track
Many seek to go where others seldom travel: this lengthy tour fulfils that wish, encompassing a good range of Papua New Guinea’s different cultures and unique landscapes into the bargain. It is a truly remarkable journey through little-visited regions of this mysterious land, providing unforgettable encounters with native tribes and resplendent birds of paradise, and introducing pristine rainforests, unspoilt tribes, tropical islands and inland waterways. Some of the accommodation will be basic and rustic but you are, after all, going well off the beaten track. The highlight could be the five nights’ canoe expedition into the heart of the Sepik River; it could equally be the extraordinary village stay while in New Britain, which has amazingly biodiverse reefs, possibly the healthiest in the world. We recommend this tour to the right people: those who seek the authentic PNG others rarely encounter and don’t mind roughing it for a few days.
