Last year, GVT decided to see more of Papua New Guinea and went to Bougainville, a province until recently stuck in the civil war. We instantly fell in love with the place, its pristine nature, raw adventure feel and its locals. Here you will meet people rebuilding their part of the world under the new hopeful motto of “United in Diversity”. Bougainville is a land filled with history as it was an important part of WWII in the Pacific but also a land with its own very unique cultures. We will learn more about these very seldom seen cultures as we will witness our very own sing-sing, or traditional dance and song festival. This tour takes us all around the province, starting in Buka, renowned for its passage and the many world-war II shipwrecks it contains. We’ll stop and visit the parliament house as well as Japanese bunkers. We will head deeper in the province, passing by a decommissioned mine, the biggest in the world when it was in operation, stopping along the way for many breathtaking views. Expect boat rides, either on banana boats or on the iconic Austronesian out-riggers, with some island hopping on the way and visits to villages where we will be amongst the first non-locals to visit. One of these villages includes a living bridge made out of vines, which the bravest amongst us will get to cross! Knowing that Bougainville is not your everyday tourist destination, we do it the right way as our tour includes expert local guides and security everywhere we’ll go.
