Papua is a wild land with a lot to discover. A trip to Papua is a mix of adventure and mysticism. Meet the Dani people who are still living very traditionally in the Baliem Valley. Go for an adventurous jungle trek to visit the last Korowai tribes who still build their houses in trees up to 40 meters high. Go on a boat adventure to reach the remote villages of the former headhunters and cannibals of the Asmat tribe. Or stay in Raja Ampat which is said to be the last paradise on Earth. Discover its pristine beaches, untouched nature and world-class underwater life. Papua can be discovered in many ways. Our hand-selected programs offer different levels of difficulty, from comfortable culture tours to challenging adventures.
The capital city of Papua is Jayapura, port of entrance to reach the highlands of Papua. From Jayapura, we can enjoy a boat tour on the beautiful Sentani lake. However, it is more of a transit hub where we stay for 1 or 2 nights before taking a plane to Wamena in the Baliem Valley, home of the Dani tribe. From Jayapura we can also fly to the airport of Dekai, the starting point for tours to visit the Korowai people. In the lowlands, Agats is a town built on stilts that can only be reached by small propeller plane or boat. From here, we start the journeys to the former headhunters of Asmat. Finally, in the very west of Papua, Sorong is the city from where we enter the archipelago of Raja Ampat.
