A whole new world
Want to get off the beaten track? Take our most jam-packed Papua New Guinea holiday and sample all the highlights of this remote region.
Witness the Alotau Festival and Sing Sing, a P&O-exclusive local display of canoes, warriors, powerful music and dance. As a matrilineal society, women make the rules in the Trobriand Islands. Try your hand at Trobriand cricket on Kiriwina Island – where the unconventional rules include an unlimited number of players, dancing and whistleblowing. On Kitava Island, unspoiled beaches and sparkling tropical waters teeming with fish and coral are ready for exploring. Visit new destination Conflict Islands - possibly the most peaceful place in the world.
