Goroka Classic Tour, 10 - 22 September 2020

Goroka Classic Tour, 10 - 22 September 2020 - PNG Culture - Dive Discovery PNGOur “Goroka Classic Tour” is an unescorted 13 day/12 night program. Escorted programs have the same guide throughout whereas with unescorted programs, you still have guides to assist you at each location, the only difference being that guides change at the different locations.

Your journey begins in Mount Hagen in the upper Waghi valley with a night at the luxurious Rondon Ridge, overlooking the Wahgi Valley, a valley unknown to the outside world until 70 years ago. From Mount Hagen travel by charter aircraft into the Sepik Region, for a 3-nights aboard our “floating lodge” the Sepik Spirit. Explore the waterways of the Sepik River and its tributaries.

From there travel across the majestic Central Ranges to Lake Murray Lodge where you will have the opportunity to witness and interact in a number of traditional activities including traditional weaving, face and body painting, and tribal warrior demonstrations.

On the Friday of the show weekend, your charter aircraft will fly you to Goroka for two full days of show festivities before traveling back to Port Moresby.
