From Vanimo To Wewak Dec 22, 2016
The sea / land trip from Vanimo to Wewak is quite an adventur, particular when it's raining. First on a small plastic boat with no roof but 2 outboard engines leaving from near the market west side of the peninsula with 10 passengers. It did take 4 hours along several empty beaches to Aitape, a small market village with some accommodation, 150 Kina. The luggage stays usually dry but you will get very wet.
From Aitape to Wewak though a beautiful wild landscape and some pretty villages by a 4 weel drive, 50 Kina, mine did take 5,5 hours but could take considerable more time. The road is mostly terrible with a few new built stretches already falling apart with many river crossings without bridge. After a heavy rain you might have to wait until the river goes down. You might find also a Banana boat from Aitape to Wewak for 60 Kina.
There are also planes for € 110 to 150 taking 50 minutes.
