Goroka Classic Show Tour
The Goroka Classic Show tour is an unescorted program, taking guests to various cultural highlights of Papua New Guinea, before ending in Goroka for the yearly cultural show. The tour begins in Mount Hagen in the upper Wahgi Valley, where guests spend a night at the resplendent Rondon Ridge in a valley which was only discovered by the outside world 70 years ago. The journey then takes you to Karawari, where guests board the Sepik Spirit – the ultimate floating lodge allowing all the comforts of civilisation on the Karawari River. Exploring the waterways of the Sepik River and its tributaries will unearth many interesting local villages and wonderful scenery. After three nights on board, transfer by river boat to Karawari Lodge, also in the Sepik Region. After a night at the lodge, fly to Tari Valley – the home of the flambouyant Huli, a colourful and proud people who still live largely as their ancestors did. Ambua Lodge is located high on the slopes of the Tari Valley, commanding magnificent views of the below valley and the surrounding peaks. Learn about the fascinating ecology, culture and history of this remote corner of the world. Next, head to Goroka to attend the famous two day Goroka Cultural Show where you will encounter the legendary Asaro mud men. Finally, return to Port Moresby to catch your outgoing international flight.
NB: This is an unescorted group, which means you will have a different local guide in each location.
