Adventure Tourism with Papua New Guinea
Adventure Tourism with Papua New Guinea Papua New Guinea is gaining a fine reputation as the ‘must visit’ destination for travellers looking for activity breaks. Once limited to gap year students, adventure tourism is becoming almost mainstream. Sun, sea and sand, ingredients formerly craved by tourists, are gradually being replaced by hikes, wildlife treks and culture. The Coastal areas of PNG offer superb opportunities for a myriad of water sports; while on land there’s a nirvana for trekkers with a vast variety of coastal, jungle and mountain trails. PNG Trekking Adventures – one of PNG’s leading ground handlers – recently added two new adventures to their itineraries. Bouganville Island, a treasure trove of WW2 history and Cycling New Ireland, see full details in their on-line brochures. The acclaimed Kokoda Trail is now becoming a firm favourite although not for the faint hearted, it takes a strenuous 6-9 days to complete the entire trek, only recommended for the super-fit. A stimulating alternative is to climb Mount Wilhelm – PNG’s highest peak. See www.pngtrekkingadventures.com.au www.papuanewguinea.travel
