"The Land of the Unexpected" is certainly the world's last frontier for eco- and ethno- tourism.

Ecotourism Melanesia is one of PNG's most experienced inbound tour operators and destination management companies. Proprietor Aaron Hayes has been promoting and handling tourism in PNG and Solomon Islands for the past 25 years, specialising in village based cultural tourism.
Aaron and our local team have an unbeatable knowledge of PNG geography and travel logistics that we have put to good use in planning a range of escorted soft adventure tours and independent holiday packages that bring intrepid visitors face to face with the culturally diverse tribes and unique natural history of Papua New Guinea. And for clients requiring customised or special arrangements we design quality, workable itineraries with keen attention to detail.
Our friendly guides offer professional service, local knowledge and cultural insight. And rest assured we practise responsible tourism: our tours put cash directly into village people's pockets.
We also handle arrangements for commercial and artistic photographers, film crews, research and medical teams, cruise ships, youth challenge expeditions, volunteer and missionary projects, VIP tourists, business reps, government / diplomatic delegations, air tours and charters, private yachts, round-the-world odyssey groups and "the weird stuff" like helping to source rare collector's items, research a historical site or find long-lost PNG relatives.
