Papua New Guinea holidays

Papua New Guinea lies entirely within the tropics, just south of the Equator and 160km to the north east of Australia. With a total land mass of about 473,189 sq km the country encompasses the eastern side of New Guinea Island, the second largest island in the world. Known as PNG, it is also home to the largest area of intact rainforest outside the Amazon.

Part of a great arc of mountains stretching from Asia, through Indonesia and into the South Pacific, Papua New Guinea comprises more than 600 islands, atolls and coral reefs, over 1000 tribes and 800 indigenous languages extending throughout its 4 regions and 20 provinces. Not surprisingly PNG offers a vibrant and colourful culture

PNG's staggering wildlife represents almost 7 percent of the world's biodiversity. It is home to more than 200 species of mammals and 700 species of birds, as well as 21,000 species of plants. Vast tracts of the country are wild and undeveloped, with magnificent natural scenery that ranges from pristine coral atolls to volcanic mountains, dense tropical rainforest and large rivers.

Spend your Papua New Guinea holiday cruising the mighty Sepik river, fishing around the fjords of Tufi, birdwatching for the world-famous birds of paradise in the Highlands, or diving on the magnificent coral reef coastline.

Many people still live in small villages making a living off the land from agriculture or as gardeners, fishermen, hunters or craftspeople.

Our expedition cruise holidays to Papua New Guinea are designed to showcase the very best of this rich and culturally diverse country. Prepare to be completely enchanted by its heritage, wild beauty, dramatic landscapes and rich flora and fauna.
