This trip operates with two professional and experienced guides, knowledgeable of the area and natural surroundings, including the local fauna, flora and history.
The tracks are mostly well cared for, dry and firm this time of year. However, on the odd occasion we have encountered wet portions of track. Most of the walks are moderate. The easier alternative walks are great for first timers. Some walks involve challenging walking of between 5 to 7 hours each day with some steep ascents and descents, so the experienced hikers won’t be disappointed.
Pre and post tour accommodation: There are many good hotels in Launceston, however we pick up and drop off from two central hotels. The tour starts at 8.00am at the Quality Hotel Colonial, 31 Elizabeth St, in Launceston. At the end of the tour we drop you to Hobart airport at approximately 5.00pm or at the St Ives Apartments, 67 St. Georges Terrace, Battery Point, Hobart.

Summer is our preferred time of year for hiking in Tasmania. The east coast is suitable from November to May. See the Bureau of Meteorology’s information about average temperatures and rainfall at different times of the year.
We strongly recommend the purchase of travel insurance for all of our trips. We require that you purchase a travel insurance policy for all travel overseas, as we charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it. It is also important in the event of an accident or loss of property. See FAQ’s for more information.
For nearly 30 years we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask one of our destination consultants or to speak with one of our guides. You can get in touch with us via our contact form, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us on +61 3 9597 9767.
