Trekking

While Papua New Guinea offers incredible diving not found anywhere else in the world, there is so much more to explore across this ruggedly beautiful land that will add to your vacation experience.

  • Exotic and diverse cultures
  • Traditional people living a subsistence lifestyle
  • Incredible natural beauty including extensive rainforest
  • Several areas producing high quality primitive art
  • A unique and accessible fauna

Trekking and harder adventurous activities are an excellent way for the fit and those who are not afraid to "rough it", to meet with the local people and experience the way they live in their own environment. And coupled with your dive adventures, you will have a lifetime of memories to take home. Included here are some of the trekking trips available and their itineraries.
