A Journey Back In Time

Papua New Guinea


Custom | 13 Days | Easy to Moderate Touring
  • Be among the few on earth to explore this distant, fertile island
  • Interact with traditional Huli and Sepik people in their villages
  • Discover lush Tari Valley, with its rich array of flora, including orchids
  • Meander a jungle-clad waterway by riverboat, meeting locals as you go
  • Follow this itinerary or we'll design one for you

Lush as a dream of green heaven, its air is filled with Picassoan birds, and its jungles, mountains, and people are cheerful citizens of one of the last earthly places where nature is an unrivaled hegemon. Papua New Guinea is a spirit-lifting place, but its people are the sweet surprise. Along with unprecedented natural scenery, you'll meet traditional Huli people in the gorgeous Tari Valley; enjoy encounters with river dwellers in Middle Sepik's lowland rain forest; and explore the island's highland villages before wrapping things up in Tufi, a beach-wandering, soul-soothing locale. 

ITINERARY


This was a trip of a lifetime. The people were so friendly and taught us so much about their culture. John and I didn't know what to expect and the whole experience was over the top. I truly feel I have taken another leap forward in my understanding of life.
