Your quoted trek price is valid for fourteen (14) days from date of quotation. If a deposit is not received in this time frame a new quotation must be requested.

If you require a personal porter after your booking has been finalised you may be charged an extra fee of $100-$200 on top of the normal personal porter charge depending on how late your request is received. If you are unable to carry your baggage while you are on the Kokoda Track we will have to engage the services of a porter and you will be charged the cost of this expense.

In the event you are unable to make your trip, you may transfer your deposit to another person or keep it as a credit with Kokoda Historical to use at a later date as long as this has been advised sixty (60) days prior to departure.

You are required to have a comprehensive personal travel insurance policy which must cover the unforeseen cancellation of your trip, the loss of personal items, the cost of emergency evacuation by air from any point along the Kokoda Track/ Kokoda Trail to Port Moresby or Australia if necessary and medical and/or hospital treatment within Papua New Guinea and/or Australia. This travel insurance is included as part of the package.

You are required to visit your GP prior to departure to ensure that you are fit to under take the challenges of the Kokoda Track and to provide you with any necessary inoculations and anti-malarial medication.

You are required to hold a current passport with at least six (6) months validity at the time of travel.

In the unfortunate event of your early departure from the trek you will incur the cost of extra staff, transportation, administration costs and all other expenses incurred in returning you back to Port Moresby. If you require or request a helicopter lift out you will be liable for these costs. This is why you must have travel insurance.

Kokoda Historical reserves the right to change the trek itinerary in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

It is important to note that Kokoda Historical aims to provide you with the best available trek. We pride ourselves on not only offering the best and safest trek but also one that is personal.
