18-31 August 2017: $11,170 baased on two sharing with all domestic flights

Panorama is a carefully planned 14 day/13 night escorted trip. It begins with the famously vibrant Mount Hagen Cultural Show and continues on to some of Papua New Guinea's most iconic places, the Sepik region, Lake Murray and the Southern Highlands.

The Hagen Show brings together sing-sing groups from across Papua New Guinea. The variety of cultures represented by the groups reflects the diversity of Papua New Guinea's landscape. During your travels after the show, you experience that diversity first hand.

Fly to Lake Murray Lodge, nestled among the trees on an island spit – situated on the largest lake in Papua New Guinea. With a rich population of birds, fish and a unique culture, this is an unforgettable experience. From there fly into the Sepik River region where your wondrous journey continues to Karawari Lodge. Discover river life on the Karawari River and spectacular primitive art as well as an incredible array of parrots and orchids. Transfer to the Sepik Spirit. The Sepik Spirit will primarily journey on the Karawari River, the storied tributary of the Sepik River, and on to the Krosmeri River which allows entry to the mysterious Blackwater Lakes.  

Then take a scenic flight from the tropical river lowlands to the temperate Southern Highlands. This is the land of the Hulis and home to thirteen different species of Birds of Paradise. The Hulis are perhaps the most famous of Papua New Guinea's cultural groups. Shake hands with Huli Wigmen and marvel at the rituals involved in growing hair for their elaborately embellished wigs. Meet Huli families who, regardless of the gradual arrival of airstrips, a road and cell phone coverage, live much as they did when they welcomed the very first outsiders. 

Return to Port Moresby before heading home to share your photos and marvel at the memories of your trip.
