PAPUA NEW GUINEA BESPOKE TRAVEL

the destination

Papua New Guinea is a country in Oceania, occupying the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and numerous offshore islands. It is located in the Southwestern Pacific, North of Australia and East of Indonesia. The central part of the island rises into a wide ridge of mountains known as the Highlands, a territory that is so densely forested and topographically forbidding that the island’s local people remained isolated from each other for millennia. It is an adventure in itself by simply travelling there. 

It is one of the most diverse and mysterious countries on Earth, with over 850 indigenous languages and at least as many traditional societies. The very interesting history of the country, which only gained independence in 1975, hardly affected the numerous tribes. They lived like they did 1’000 years ago, no matter which power ruled the country and still live like this to the present day.

It is also one of the most rural and least explored countries – culturally, biologically, and geographically. Papua New Guinea is known for its pristine coral reefs, beaches, active volcanoes, rainforests, hiking trails, and traditional tribal villages. No other destination offers the same in terms of raw beauty, tribal cultures and fauna.

Papua New Guinea is a great destination for nature lovers and wildlife admirers: echidnas, tree-kangaroos, birds-of-paradise, giant butterflies and over 2’000 orchid species – this island country is a tropical paradise. Rainforests, mountain forests as well as palm, swamp and mangrove forests dominate the scenery. The country is very mountainous and there is a vast volcanic landscape, with some volcanoes still active to this day. The most beautiful natural sights, however, are the untouched beaches and colourful coral reefs in front of the coast. This diverse landscape offers a number of possibilities for outdoor activities, much to the adventurer’s delight: you can venture off on incredible hikes, dive in Rabaul, watch exotic birds, go fishing, and go on flight seeing tours.

Papua New Guinea is extremely fascinating. Indeed, it is one of the few regions close to the equator that experiences snowfall, only 18% of its population lives in urban centres, and the indigenous people still practice ancient rituals.
