New Guinea Explorer

Small Group Holiday



days from


Imagine an island where hundreds of languages are spoken, where people are still relying on their Stone Age heritage. Now throw in some of the remotest and least travelled mountains and valleys, all clad in lush rainforest, and you have a region where true adventure awaits. Our two week tour of New Guinea will take you to both countries that lay claim to the island - Papua New Guinea and Indonesia's Irian Jaya. Explore unique villages along the Karawari River, enjoy incredible biodiversity at Rondon Ridge and meet the tribes from the Wamena Highlands and the Baliem valley during the Baliem Valley Cultural festival.
