Reizen Trips Voyages Papua

Papua

Papua, former Irian Jaya and Dutch Nieuw Guinea, has been discovered by only few tourists. Culture and nature are still unspoiled here.
In Central Papua is the immense Lorentz national park with the Puncak Jaya being the highest mountain (more than 5.000 m high) in Indonesia.
The Baliem Valley is perfectly accessible and gives a clear picture of the culture and the customs of its population. Jayapura is in the North the capital city of the province.
Papua has only been part of the Republic of Indonesia since 1963. Until that time it was a Dutch colony.
We organise also nostalgic tours to Sorong, Biak, Manokwari, Jayapura and other former army bases.

Climate

Klimaat Baliemvallei
There are no significant seasonal changes on Papua. Regularly showers followed by clearings throughout the year.
In the Baliem Valley situated at a higher altitude it is pleasantly cool, with temperatures from 20 to 25 degrees. Up in the mountains a pullover is not an unnecessary luxury.

Zoals gezegd: Begin Oktober is nog niet de goede periode om naar Kaimana te gaan. Vanaf November tot en met April waait de wind minder hard uit het westen, is de zee rustig, het water helder en de kans op walvishaaien vele malen groter (zeker in de week rondom Nieuwe maan).

Excursies Excursions

Diving trips Papua

Kali Lemon
Merapi is The specialist in diving trips to Papua. Besides divers paradise Raja Ampat we also propose Papua diving trips in Biak, Triton Bay near Kaimana and Cendrawasih Bay near Nabire.

Triton Bay is the most neglected diving wonderland in Papua. Besides rest, you’ll find so many species of fish and different corals here. On top of that you can dive or snorkel with the whale sharks.

Raja Ampat is a group of islands in West Papua (former Irian Jaya) composed of 610, mainly uninhabited islands. The four biggest islands are Waigeo in the north, Salawati (southwest of the second biggest city in West-Papua, Sorong), Batanta (north of Salawati) and Misool in the southwest. The name Raja Ampat is based on these four islands and literally translated means ‘the four kings’.
Raja Ampat is still a rather unknown area in Indonesia, but among divers it is a renowned diving destination. This because Raja Ampat hosts so many different species of fish and fantastic coral reefs, varying from hard to soft corals. The islands themselves are impressive as well with their silent lagoons, crystal white sand and water that varies in colour from bright green to bright blue.

Diving is possible all year long, but from mid-July till mid-September it is more likely to rain and the waves can be higher. The Raja Ampat archipelago is easy to reach via Sorong.

It’s a little more difficult to reach Cendrawasih Bay via Nabire, but here you can swim or dive with the whale sharks all year long (except during the week around full moon).
