Trek with Kokoda Trekking & have an adventure of a lifetime

The Kokoda Trail is one of the world’s great treks, linking the southern and northern coast of Papua New Guinea, it is a challenge to be enjoyed by the fit bushwalker. The Kokoda Trail and Sogeri area have a history of bitter fighting between Australian and Japanese armies during the early days of the war in the Pacific in World War II.

The 96 km Kokoda trail passes through rugged mountainous country of rainforest, jungles of fern, orchids, birds and clean mountain streams which tumble into steep valleys. The unspoilt villages throughout the Kokoda Track will welcome you and the Koiari and Orokaiva people will greet you with smiles and tempt you with seasonal fruit and vegetables.

He showed Linda all the messages you all wrote that I sent as text messages to his sat phone. He said to tell you that she was very happy when she read them. They have the majority of big climbs out of the way now, well except for a couple, haha, but more down's than up's. Keep going trek 1118, you will be able to see Kokoda in the distant tomorrow as you reach the Kokoda Gap. ... See MoreSee Less

Taz's Story

You hear that Kokoda is tough. . . but nothing will ever prepare you for the challenge that trek presents. Simply hearing the words “Kokoda” should bring people to their knees! It is definitely more mental than physical but demanding in every way. Ultimately, that’s the attraction. It wouldn’t be Kokoda if it didn’t push you to your limits. I re-connected with a friend, Alex who I hadn’t seen in over 3 years, we’d both found the same kokoda trekking company and expressed our interest. So we chatted and decided it was on- 3 weeks to prep and go. (Thank the gods we are both crazy determined and fit) We opted for the 6 day trek carrying our own gear (although on day 5 which turned into a 12 hour trekking day- I conceded my need to get to camp before 10pm and be able to walk on the last day was more important than my ego, so I had help with the tent for the last 3 hours) The trek was absolutely phenomenal- every vertical up, seemingly endless down, the scorching sun, gripping mud, cold mornings, rain and slippery river crossing, it’s all part of the journey. There are times when you can’t even see the top (or bottom) of where you are going- you just have to look straight at your feet and all you can think about is just putting one foot in front of the other. Our trek leader “Tony” was incredible, he said, when the trail get’s tough the people yell “yu giaman” (YOU LIE) to the trail- as if the mountains are deceiving you into thinking you will not make it. No one would start that trek if they didn’t intend to finish. The history of the trail and the scenery is spellbinding. The villages and the resilience and resourcefulness of the people who live there is so inspiring. I would not trade this experience for anything and can not wait to do it again (maybe going down Imita range!) with my son when he is older. The sense of accomplishment when you complete these 96kms is unparalleled. An eternal source of respect and inspiration to everyone who has done or plans to do this trek, as well as all of my clients at XL Personal Training. Thank you for an incredible life changing 6 days, we will forever remember them! Taz

Trek 1119: One of the trekkers listed to walk on this trek commencing in Kokoda on the 22nd June wrote on our page that their trek was 'next' off the ranks and excitement starting to kick in! yes it is - still find it hard to believe that we have done over '1000 treks' since the date we commenced this business. So yes, plenty of runs on the board and still going strong. Some of our staff will no doubt be looking at retirement in the coming years as a lot of walking has been done by their legs on the hills of Kokoda but so many youngsters coming up the rear just dying to take over their leadership roles. Thanks again to each and everyone of you who have walked with us since 2003; to the likes of Michael Swann about to head out again in July (walked so many times before); Angela coming back again also in July; to those already booked; and to those thinking of booking, a big THANK YOU. To Pat (our aussie guide) who came to visit today to check on his next couple of treks. To all our PNG based Guides and Porters working for Kokoda Trekking along with the 'Boss Man' Russell Eroro for taking good care of you all - another THANK YOU. Top weekend everyone.

I uploaded photographs from Trek 1115 & 1116 last night and today I have been going through them one by one. They say a photograph tells a story, so when I came across the ones below, I think Mark Jackovic must have been first to the camping area for the night and his porter was excited to have the pick of the whole area as to where to pitch his tent. Slowly the area filled up where it is hoped they all slept soundly tucked away inside their tents. ... See MoreSee Less
