DETAILED DECRIPTION

Gain insight into Papua New Guinea’s traditional culture with intimate tribal encounters. This is truly the perfect luxury Papua New Guinea journey. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Port Moresby

Arrive in Port Moresby, the seaside capital of Papua New Guinea. You’ll be escorted to your comfortable, modern room at the Gateway Hotel. Spend the rest of your day either relaxing or getting acquainted with the city.

DAY 2: Sepik Region

Explore the sights of Port Moresby on a half-day tour, including a visit to the city’s indigenous tribes, the Motu, Koitabu, and Hula people. In the afternoon, you’ll take a flight to Wewak, where you’ll settle in for the night in your room at the Karawari Lodge. 

DAY 3: Sepik Region

Today you can explore the rustic, traditional canoe villages that line the middle Sepik River region. Interact with local village people and gain insight into their day-to-day lives. Explore the winding pathways built using local materials, and check out the exotic wildlife that frequents the area. Top it all off with a visit to Papua New Guinea’s Primitive Art Center, where you can get a taste for the region’s artisan culture.

DAY 4: Sepik Region

Explore the remote cultures of the Upper Sepik today, where you can get up-close and personal with what’s known as Papua New Guinea’s ‘last frontier’ - a place lost in time, where tribes have had very little contact whatsoever with the outside world. The Hunstein tribe of Wagu Lake will be one such encounter.

DAY 5: Goroka

Upon your arrival in Goroka today, you’ll pay a visit to the legendary Asaro mudmen, and learn about their fascinating history involving conquering an invading tribe using mud; hence their name. Next, soar to new heights with a hike up the majestic Mount Wilhelm, Papua New Guinea’s highest mountain, at just under 15,000 feet.

DAY 6: Goroka

Today, you’ll be entertained and informed, starting with a performance by Goroka’s renowned theater group, Raun Raun, housed in a stunning piece of architecture. Finish off with a visit to the J.K. McCarthy Museum, dedicated to one of PNG’s legendary patrol officers, full of ancient cultural curiosities.

DAY 7: Mount Hagen

Today you’re heading to the third-largest city in Papua New Guinea, the volcano city of Mount Hagen. The area is famed for its coffee, and its coffee and tea plantations have brought rapid changes to the local lifestyle. Visit a coffee plantation to learn the intricacies behind the major local trade, and sample its delicate and bold flavors. 

DAY 8: Mount Hagen

The magnificent Wahgi Valley of the Western Highlands is on the itinerary today, and you can enjoy a full-day excursion there, exploring the verdant mountain valleys, the river, and the traditional villages that populate it.

DAY 9: Mount Hagen

Gain even further insight into the culture and lifestyle of Papua New Guinea with a full-day excursion to the tribal villages of PNG’s highest province, Enga. Today, you’ll meet the Wapenamanda and Wabag tribes. 

DAY 10: Tari

Today you’ll fly to Tari, home to a proud, flamboyant tribe known for their elaborate dress. You’ll check into your room at the Ambua Lodge, an award-winning, eco-friendly facility with stunning panoramas of the Tari Valley, before taking off once again to spot exotic bird life and hike through its winding rainforest pathways.

DAY 11: Tari

You’ll spend more time exploring Tari today, gaining further insight into the “Huli Wigmen” tribe that lives here. Meet local villagers and learn about their traditional culture, which still remains largely uninfluenced by outside forces. 

DAY 12: Port Moresby

Today, the final day of your tour, you’ll take a plane back to Port Moresby, from where you can check in to your international flight, either to return home, or on to your next destination.
