The high peaks of Kosciuszko National Park are a mecca for walkers keen to see rugged scenery, masses of spectacular wildflowers and the summit of Mt Kosciuszko, earning it the prestigious UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status.
The walking is exhilarating yet relatively easy for an alpine environment. The rewards are considerable with spectacular views as you walk each day, mountain fresh air and the sense of completion as you wind your way through the mountains from Wragges Creek to Thredbo.
These mountains were once covered by glaciers that carved exquisite lakes from the granite rock, as well as numerous steep sided valleys. Walk through snowgum woodlands, and colourful alpine meadows and sit enjoying lunch at Kosciusko, by beautiful creeks and the Blue Lake. Follow the Aqueduct Trail, learning about the mighty Snowy Mountains Scheme and cross the Snowy River. On the last day, we take the chairlift ride back to the top of Mt Kosciuszko and walk down from the summit to Thredbo via Dead Horse Gap to cap off what is an amazing unbroken linear trek through the alps.
If you’re after a shorter itinerary, then our 4-day Roof of Australia Long Weekend trip may suit you better.
Every last detail is taken care of so you can fully immerse yourself in this extraordinary alpine landscape. At night freshen up and settle in at your comfortable accommodation. The two course dinners and cooked breakfasts make indulgent bookends to each day. And with two outstanding guides, you can pace yourself because we can offer a choice of easier or harder walking options along the way.
