OUR WALKING HOLIDAYS
At present we have two scheduled 12 day fully inclusive holidays to choose from:
Taste of the East
This 12 day walking holiday includes selected walks on the East Coast including some small offshore islands from the Tasman Peninsula to the Bay of Fires. It includes selected areas of the North East, including the Blue Tier and Tamar Estuary and concludes in Launceston, Tasmania’s second largest city. Graded As Easy.
Taste of the West
This 12 day walking holiday includes selected walks near Launceston in the north of the State, The Ben Lomond National Park, an area called “The Western Tiers”, Cradle Mountain, West Coast, Mt. Field and Wellington Park (kunanyi/Mt. Wellington) and Hobart. It commences in Launceston and concludes in Hobart on a Sunday (You will have the opportunity to visit the locally famous Salamanca Market on the Saturday). It is graded as Easy/Medium.
When Do We Run Our Walking Holidays
Nearly All our walking tours are now available at a time to suit your group (except our Singles walks – more details below) as we have found it difficult to provide set dates that suit our clients. Consequently all our walks are more personalized and can be booked by groups from four to 10 people. Each walk has a “season” which means we only provide the walk between certain dates in the year. This is largely due to the expected weather during these periods. Some walks particularly those that go to mountainous regions or the west coast are far more likely to be affected by weather conditions, than our coastal walks where the conditions are generally milder during the late autumn and early spring.
We can restrict walks to Women only, Seniors or Couples and we also have a special “Singles walk” that is suitable for both single males and females in an age range from 25 to 40. This walk is run during the first two weeks of February. Aptly known as our “Valentines Walk”.
All our groups are small, maximum ten clients. Our Multi-Day Walking Holidays provides a carefully selected series of Day Walks (returning each night to your accommodation) to a very diverse range of places including iconic National Parks, less visited places on the coast or highlands, to places on private property exploring many areas of Tasmania that the average traveller does not normally see.
TASMANIAN WALKING HOLIDAYS
Our walking holidays are especially suitable to active retirees but equally suitable for all adults that are reasonably fit and capable of walking up to 4 to five hours each day. We also have special tailored walks for family groups as well.
Tasmania is a place of dramatic contrasts, there are the craggy mountain peaks of the highlands with a myriad of sparkling lakes & tarns, the lush rainforests, dramatic mountains and wild wilderness of the of the west coast, the rolling hills & grassy sun-drenched plains of the midlands, lofty dolerite cliffs of the Tasman Peninsula to the pristine white sand beaches, and pink granite seascape of the east coast. Yes, we have it all, that is why I live here and eager to share with you.
Tasmania’s topography gives an amazing mix of natural environments, let us show you what we have on one of our walking holidays – we know you will fall in love with Tasmania, we did! Let us share it with you.
TAILORED WALKING HOLIDAYS
We can also organise personalised programmes to suit your schedule and budget, whatever your requirements we can generally put an amazing memorable holiday together for you.
