Customised Treks And Climbs

Peak Learning is a small business focusing on customised trekking and expeditions to the Himalayas, Papua
New Guinea and Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The Himalayas has been our playground for nearly 40
years. Papua New Guinea is at Australia’s doorstep and offers genuine wilderness trekking in an
untouched landscape free from modern intrusions. Many of our Papua New Guinea treks are battlefield
tours of the major campaigns during the Pacific War, including the world-famous Kokoda Track.

We have an impeccable record for quality, safety, fun, adventure and learning. Our groups are small
(between 4 and 12 people), and our treks are designed to cater to your needs — whether you are first
venturing into the mountains or jungle, or you are a seasoned climber returning for another challenge.
