Overview

Getaway Trekking is Australia’s #1 culturally and ecologically sensitive trek operator, an expert in the Kokoda Track (Kokoda Trail) Our treks in Papua New Guinea (Kokoda Trail/Track, Kapa Kapa-Jaure Track and the Embessa Cultural Trek), Nepal (Annapurna and Everest Base Camps, Gokyo, Island Peak), Indonesia, Europe, India, Bhutan and the Australia each offer something unique. Although we have taken many adventurous souls to various destinations around the world, our principal destination remains the Kokoda Track (Kokoda Trail) in PNG. For many Australians, the Kokoda Track (Kokoda Trail) is an iconic trek, and represents a growing appreciation of the bravery and sacrifice of our young diggers during the WW2 Kokoda Campaign. Take some time to look through our travel destinations and special volunteerism and yoga travel holiday extensions. We at Getaway Trekking feel privileged in helping you make your trekking adventure journey a safe and most rewarding experience.

Just completed my 2nd Kokoda Trail trek with Getaway Trekking. Both treks were just fantastic - well organised, respectful of the history and the villages visited. If you want a life enriching experience - contact Getaway Trekking.
