Welcome to PNG and the start of your adventure! Once you’ve settled into the hotel come get to know your team and crew at our pre-adventure briefing and dinner. Get a good sleep tonight, we have a massive week ahead of us! > Overnight in Port Moresby, Stanley Hotel
: TRAVEL & PREPARATION
We fly from Port Moresby to Popendetta, and then transfer down to Buna Guest House where we enjoy the beautiful scenery and friendly villagers. In Buna we’ll prepare our bikes and gear for the challenge ahead. Dinner is on the beach, watching the sunset as we contemplate the journey ahead > Overnight in Buna
: HIT THE TRACK
We’ll make sure you get a good breakfast inside you to set you up for the first leg of our adventure! We’ll be off to an early start, riding over 80 kms for approximately 9 hours today, weaving our way along bumpy tracks and trails and past many beautiful villages, streams and jungle scenery. We pass back through Popendetta onto Awala before crossing the Kumusi River and setting up camp in the Village of Pisa > Camping overnight in Pisa Village
: BIKE & TREK
Another early start today has us doing the final 40 km ride into Kokoda. We’ll pass through the wartime villages of Gorari and Oivi, before arriving in Kokoda around lunchtime. After packing up our bikes, we have lunch before beginning our trek across the track. Today we will walk to the Village of Deniki, which will take us approximately 3 hours > Camping overnight in Deniki Village
: BATTLE SITE
Hopefully you had got a good sleep in because we have a HUGE walk of about 11 hours today! Trekking from Deniki to Eora Creek we pass through the Isurava Battle site where we hold a commemoration service before walking onto Alola Village and crossing the Eora Creek River into camp > Camping overnight at Eora Creek
: HIT OUR HIGH POINT
A tough walk ahead of us today as we continue to climb over the highest point of the track at 2190 metres, through the moss forest and down into Efogi Village. We’ll be walking for approx 12 hours today so plenty of opportunities for some magic photo moments > Overnight in Efogi Village
: COMMEMORATION DAY
We continue our early morning starts and continue on through the Villages of Efogi, across Brigade Hill where we hold a commemoration service, before descending down through the Village of Menari. We head down “the wall” before finally reaching our camp at Agulogo. Another big 12-hour day…there seems to be a theme here! > Overnight in Agulogo Village
: UP AND DOWN
We leave the camp early to cross the Brown River and begin our climb up through Nauro and across the Maguli Range. We descend the Range down to Ofi Creek before our final climb of the day up Iorabaiwa Ridge then down into camp at Iorabaiwa Village. Once again another huge 12-hour day > Overnight in Iorabaiwa
: NEARLY THERE!
Our final day on the track and just as intense! With have just two climbs to get us to Owers Corner but tackle 22 river crossings before our first climb up and over Imita Ridge, which is followed by our final climb to Owers Corner. Enjoy the triumph of crossing the track (and we’ll let have a little rest) before we reassemble our bikes and start our bike journey to the village of Vesulogo. About 9 hours of walking and biking today > Overnight in Vesulogo Village
: YOU’VE DONE IT!
It’s hard to believe that this is the last day of our challenge. We’ll be moving for around 6 hours today, starting with a fast ride to Sogeri Junction before we commence a very steep descent to the bottom of the plateau. On our way to Port Moresby we stop in at the Bomana War Cemetery and pay our respect to the fallen soldiers. We then have another fast ride into town and onto the Port Moresby Yacht Club for some very well deserved celebrations! > Overnight in Port Moresby Hotel
Depart Port Moresby for home…time to reflect on your adventure and what you’ve just achieved. You’re now in a small, elite percentage of people who has conquered 284 kms of mountains and rainforest in tough conditions, experiencing a small piece of what our heroes saw all those years ago during battle. Congratulations! Remember this forever.
