Custom trips to Papua New Guinea are possible, but we recommend going on a Small Group Trip to Papua New Guinea. This rough-and-tumble destination is best navigated with the cultural knowledge and introductions made possible only with a well-connected Tour Leader who has cultivated local friendships for decades.

However, if you do decide to pursue a visit Papua New Guinea, you have come to the right place. We are the industry leader in private, custom Papua New Guinea travel.

A Custom Journey departs on dates of your choosing and you travel only in the company of loved ones to destinations entirely up to you. You determine the trip length and focus. The type of Papua New Guinea lodging is up to you, as are included meals. All custom trips to Papua New Guinea are accompanied by expert private local guides and drivers, all for about the price of a group departure (or if you choose, the sky is of course the limit).
