Group Tours

Since 1979, we lead group tours to selected destinations in Papua: Climb the Carstensz Pyramid, meet the former headhunters of Asmat, or cross the Korowai sector on foot. Our group tours are guided by real experts. Group tours often go further and are more intense than private tours.

Papua EXTREME: A pioneering expedition for the truly adventurous

For the first time ever, we are organizing an expedition group that will attempt to follow the Dairam River from its source southward into the endless jungle at the foot of the central mountains, a region where isolated forest nomadic tribes live. The most famous, but not the only tribe in this area are the Korowai. The trekking conditions are completely unknown and therefore it is impossible to know in advance a correct and concrete itinerary for each day. What we do know: The distance between Okbape and our final destination Yanirumah is about 120 km.

This is a unique, one-time tour that won't be offered again.

Our classic 3-in-1 Papua tour.

This intensive trip begins with a visit to the annual Baliem Valley Highland Festival. Numerous Dani tribes from all over the valley take part in this spectacle. From the Baliem Valley we fly by charter plane directly to the Korowai sector. We go on a jungle trekking to the Korowai tribe, who still live very traditionally in tree houses up to 40 meters high. Afterwards we continue by boat from the deep jungle to the coast to meet the former headhunters of the Asmat. Here we experience several breathtaking ancient ceremonies involving hundreds of people.

Climb one of the Seven summits

The Carstensz Pyramid, also called Puncak Jaya, is the highest peak in Oceania with 4,884 meters and thus one of the famous Seven Summits, the highest peaks of the seven continents. Dr. Weiglein is one of the few experts who has successfully guided many expeditions to this area. From the wet and muddy jungle to the glaciers of Carstensz Mountain, this trekking expedition in Papua is a real challenge for the truly adventurous.

Expedition to a rarely visited area

The former headhunters of Asmat were once very feared and have only been safe to visit for a few decades. Until today, many Asmat villages are wild and culturally intact. We leave the usual travel routes and experience the raw and difficult to access Asmat. We witness several big events involving hundreds of people. A gigantic boat ceremony, drum festivals, mask dances and the ceremonial carving of an ancestor pole are all part of the massive experience!

Crossing the Korowai sector and visiting the Baliem Valley

 Still to this day, the Korowai live far away from civilization, deep in the forest of the Papua lowlands. During our tour, we cross the Korowai sector, from Mabul in the West to Yanirumah in the East. We spend many days in the forest, around the Avium river. The deeper we walk into the forest, the wilder it gets. We visit several Korowai settlements, and we spend more time inside the sector than most visitors typically do. We leave the sector from Yanirumah with a charter flight to Wamena in the Baliem Valley.
