Visit One Of The World’s Great Civilisations With Our Papua New Guinea Tours
The culturally rich nation of Papua New Guinea is unforgettable for any traveller. Join one of our epic tours and you’ll get to meet tribes with their own traditions, customs and languages.
Located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, Papua New Guinea is perhaps best known for its linguistic diversity: there are around 800 languages spoken in this country, making it one of the most linguistically diverse places on the planet.
The country gained its independence from Australia in 1975, and although it has an abundance of natural wealth it faces various challenges including those related to governance, healthcare, and education.
Papua New Guinea also sometimes experiences earthquakes and volcanic eruptions! This is a land which is made up of tropical rainforests, highland mountains and lowland coastal areas, along with active volcanoes.
Rocky Road Travel hold two group tours to Papua New Guinea each year.
During our exciting tours, you’ll arrive at the capital Port Moresby (the seaside capital city and gateway of the country), then fly to Mount Hagan and the Central Highlands. Once there, you’ll get to visit local villages and schools and even take part in a traditional pig mumu feast.
This country hosts many colourful cultural festivals throughout the year, including Mount Hagen and Goroka Festivals which you’ll get to be a part of. Rocky Road travellers will enjoy two days at the Mount Hagen or Goroka festival, including having ‘behind the scenes’ access.
Our tours also take you deep into the highlands, visiting the town of Lae before flying back to Port Moresby (often known as Pom City). On the way, you’ll get to see a plethora of unique and diverse wildlife. The island of New Guinea is considered a biodiversity hotspot.
We can also take you to a wide range of other unusual destinations.
