This “Orchids in the Wild” trip to the highlands of Papua New Guinea starts with everyone meeting in the city of Port Moresby.
We fly to the town of Mt. Hagen where we will spend the next week. We will stay at the Magic Mountain lodge, a lovely resort nestled at the base of Magic Mountain and Mt. Hagen. From this base of operations we will make day trips into different parts of the New Guinea highlands, enjoying the culture, local people, incredible birds and the amazing orchids of this incredible area.
Mid-week we will travel to a lodge at the base of the highest mountain in New Guinea (Mt. Wilhelm), where we will make several treks into the cloud forest to see orchids in situ. Back to Mt. Hagen where we will fly back to Port Moresby and then two additional days in this area exploring nature parks and reserves.
The New Britain part of the trip is operated in conjunction with RedFern Adventures.
ONLY 3 SPOTS AVAILABLE NOW.
