Ecotourism Melanesia - Remote Area Tours: Tauri River
REMOTE AREA EXPEDITIONS

For private groups. Minimum 6 pax.

These are challenging adventure trips are mainly suitable for private groups because of the high overhead costs of mounting an expedition to a remote area with no accommodation, no public transport - not even any roads in some places - and requiring a lot of work to scout, design, arrange and manage the trip. The payoff is the experience of visiting rugged parts of PNG where only the most hardy people survive and foreigners rarely venture.
