Enjoy marine activities

Go snorkelling in Kimbe Bay, rated a biodiversity hotspot with over 860 species of coral fish; take a glass bottomed boat off Yanaba Island to see into the depths below; and swim on the outer reef of the Laughlan Islands where you may see turtles and spinner dolphins.

Experience fascinating cultures

As one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world, Papua New Guinea offers visitors the opportunity to travel to some of the lesser-visited, secluded islands to meet various tribes. Watch a traditional skeleton dance by the Omo Masalai, a performance by the mysterious mudmen, a ghost dance and enjoy a traditionally prepared lunch.

Explore New Britain

The country’s biggest island, New Britain is home to a diverse number of attractions. Explore the capital of Port Moresby, snorkel in impressive Kimbe Bay, trek in the rainforest and visit the Hot river – a naturally heated river surrounded by rainforest. Discover remnants from the second world war, see impressive volcanoes and enjoy beautiful panoramic views.

Spot birds of paradise

Papua New Guinea is home to 38 bird of paradise species – and the best bet to spot them is in Tari. The Ambua Lodge is one of the best places to stay in the area with panoramic views across the highlands, and nearby rainforests boasting exceptional flora and orchids – as well as 13 different species of bird of paradise.

Sail the Pacific

Cruise to the different islands of Papua New Guinea, each with their own attractions – snorkelling, glass-bottomed boat excursions, village visits and dolphin spotting are all possible – before heading off to other Pacific Islands.
