Papua New Guinea
If you like the taste of adventure, PNG is hard to beat. The country offers a great range of trekking options such as Black Cat Track, Kapa Kapa, Lark Force and Mt Wilhelm, and of course the famous Kokoda Track.
PNG, also known as ‘the underwater photographer’s paradise’, offers spectacular diving. The coral reefs are largely untouched, outstanding marine life including reef sharks, pelagic fish, hammerheads, barracuda as well as WWII wrecks (tanks, downed US bombers and Japanese Zeros). Popular dive spots include Loloata Island, close to Port Moresby, Tufi Dive Resort, Walindi Dive Resort, Alotua and Lissenung Island.
Pick just about any coastal destination in PNG and there is great fishing (including the famed Black Bass and Barramundi) or if you are fit and healthy kayaking is one way to explore the extraordinary coastline of PNG and surrounding islands. What better way to meet locals in their dugout canoes than from your own kayak?
Papua New Guinea offers truly incredible experiences, come and see what awaits you.
