We offer two, seven day tour options of Tasmania’s top walking spots. Join us and visit many of Tasmania’s stunning national parks and wilderness areas. Visits to a large number of Tasmania’s national parks have been included in the tour along with many days spent exploring our World Heritage listed wilderness areas.
Photographers rave about it – a certain quality of the light in Tasmania. Craggy mountains loom closer, seas carve out a deeper coastline drama along wild beaches, blue sky has a wider reach. The island has the cleanest air in the world, so nature’s palette shows through without the contamination of urban pollution. And for color, nothing beats Tasmania and it’s four distinct seasons.
The contrast between natural beauty on a grand scale and gardens and buildings formed by human hand exists throughout the state. Some of the oldest vegetation on earth, forests of the ancient single super continent of Gondwanaland, flourishes in the Tasmanian World Heritage Area, which has its northern boundary in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. The island’s landscape is significantly different to the rest of Australia and to the world due to its geological origins. Even its vegetation, dominated by forests of Nothofagus and ancient conifers, is quintessentially Tasmanian.
With over 1144 named mountains from which to walk, Tasmania is Australia’s most mountainous state, similar in size to West Virginia or Switzerland. More than a third of Tasmania is protected with 20 national parks and over 1.38 million hectares of World Heritage Area stretching from Cradle Mountain in the north to South West Cape and the islands beyond. Renowned for being one of the world’s best walking destinations, it has more than 3000km of world-class walking tracks, thousands of highland lakes, hundreds of clean beaches and mountain peaks and crags. Spend 19 days exploring some of the best trails and mountain day walks Tasmania has to offer.
