If visiting unspoilt parts of the world, escaping daily routines, seeing volcanoes, fishing, swimming, snorkelling, diving in pristine waters, flying around in a helicopter and eating fine food with 36 like-minded people sounds like your kind of holiday, luxury travel specialist Latitude 33 has heeded your call.
Discover the wonders of Papua New Guinea (PNG) on a trip of a lifetime on Latitude 33’s exclusive, fully hosted 13-night Sepik Warriors journey, including a 10-night expedition cruise on board the luxurious True North, for a truly unforgettable holiday that will deliver all of the above, and more.
Commencing on 10 November 2019, your journey begins with a 2-night stay in a one bedroom Balinese-inspired villa complete with your own private plunge pool at the stunning Niramaya Villas & Spa in Port Douglas. Meet your fellow travellers with a welcome dinner at the resort.
On 12 November your real adventure begins as you transfer to Cairns for your private charter flight to Alotau in PNG. Here you will board True North – your luxuriously appointed floating base for the next 10 nights. The ship is purpose built to access wilderness areas where the bigger ships simply cannot go!
Multiple adventure boats take guests away in small groups to experience wilderness up-close and the luxury of numerous tenders also means that guests have greater opportunity to do what they want, when they want! And, to add another dimension to your adventure, most itineraries feature an on-board helicopter. Daily activities can include snorkelling, diving, fishing, hiking, picnics, natural history, culture and, scenic flights in the ship’s helicopter, giving you the chance to explore both above and below the water.
Your cruise takes in some of the country’s most spectacular destinations including jungle-clad Fergusson Island with its spectacular birdlife, the coastal village of Tufi – a mecca for SCUBA divers, and the strikingly beautiful Jacquinot Bay. Delve deeper into the jungle and meet local villagers in New Britain, one of the world’s most isolated regions, stand in awe of an active volcano on Long Island, and tap into your inner Joseph Conrad as you spend two days exploring the mysterious Sepik River including the extraordinary stilt houses of Lake Kambaraumba. Plus you’ll even have the opportunity to take the helicopter to Kokoda!*
On 22 November, return to Cairns for one last night of luxury at Shangri-La Cairns, before your onward flight home the following day.
Latitude 33’s 13-night Sepik Warriors journey is priced from $21,663 per person* and includes return economy airfares to Cairns, private car transfers to and from your home*, charter flights to and from PNG, transfers, all accommodation, all meals on board True North, plus beer, wine and soft drink with lunch and dinner, as well as an extensive range of daily activities during your cruise, from scenic walks to fishing, diving and much more.
