Mount Hagen Birding, Goroka Show, Madang and Sepik River
This is an exceptional group tour led by local expert guides and combining many of Papua New Guinea’s cultural and birding highlights. Begin with a simple highland lodge near Mount Hagen for the rare opportunity to see numerous birds of paradise. Then continue your special adventure with the spectacular Goroka Show, the largest cultural extravanganza in the country in which more than 100 tribes display their music and dancing skills over the two glorious days of this extraordinary sing-sing. Next comes the Pacific coastal resort of Madang for snorkeling on some of the world’s best reefs and relaxation time by the sea. Finally, explore the Sepik River by motorised canoe with a two-night stay in a river settlement, allowing full immersion in the local life and culture of the longest river in the island of New Guinea. Your final night in Port Moresby includes a visit to nearby Varirata National Park for the chance to spot Raggiana bird of paradise, PNG’s resplendent national bird and a fitting end to an extraordinary trip.
