MIDDLE SEPIK RIVER ARTIFACTS TOUR :

Do you want to spend some time in the Middle Sepik area experiencing the Last Frontier? If so read on and think about booking a tour.

The Sepik River Region is steeped in rituals, ceremonies and strong culture. It is the strongest area in PNG for traditional culture, rainforests and carvings.

The Middle Sepik is particularly renowned for it’s ancestral “Men’s Spirit Houses” where the amazing “Crocodile Initiation Ceremonies” take place, as well as other rituals, in the same ways as they have done over the centuries.

This is the area we specialise in sending people who want a true taste of PNG adventure. The villages we visit have the most welcoming of peoples and one can walk around freely and safely.

There will plenty of opportunity for trekking through the jungle, seeing wild orchids, beautiful birds, catching fish for the evening meal, buying carvings, and experiencing that feeling that you are on a different planet. No problems with drinking water.

Their guides are English speaking from the area, totally trustworthy and friendly.
