The Kokoda Track

An introduction from

Indigenous Kokoda Adventures

Indigenous Kokoda Adventures is the only wholly Indigenous, locally owned and run, tour operator on the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea. We offer an experience like no other while directly supporting our people, villages and communities along the Track. We are excited to have you come for a trek with us to discover a place, a culture and a people that you will not find anywhere else in the world. We offer an 11-day trek over the 96 km trail with options to adjust the number of days if time is an issue for you. While your safety is our number one priority, we are also committed to ensuring that all our trekkers have a life changing experience while visiting our villages and communities along the Track. We are community focused and would love to show you the difference we are making for our people along the Kokoda Track.

Environmental Impact

Is there an Environmental Impact Plan in use:

No

Status of the Environmental Impact Plan:

Pending / Strategy in development

Details about the Environmental Impact Plan:

Because the villages along the Kokoda Track are home to our porters and guides, we all have a vested interest in keeping our villages, and the track that joins them, pristine. We ensure that our guests bring biodegradable soap so the rivers and streams that supply water to the villages, stay pristine. We have a zero tolerance for any litter left in the villages by our trekkers. If you bring it in, you carry it out.

Community Impact

Is there a Community Action Plan in use:

Yes

Details about the Community Action Plan:

While Indigenous Kokoda Adventures (IKA) is a tour operator, we are a community focused one with heart and soul and a far-reaching vision to improve the lives of the people along the Kokoda Track.
IKA provides a more equitable employment compensation for our guides and porters so they will be better able to provide for their families.
Most people are aware that education is the number one way to break the cycle of poverty. We believe our children are our most valuable resource and their education is a priority for us. We are working with local coffee farmers from the region of Kokoda and are selling IKA branded coffee, Kokoda Luti coffee, to support post Grade 8 education of children along the Kokoda Track through our foundation, the IKA Foundation. Kokoda Luti coffee represents the heart and soul of Kokoda – our children.
