  • The West Coast is very scenic, hilly, sparsely populated and has wonderfully quiet roads. From Launceston we head inland to Cradle Mountain where we overnight at a wilderness lodge. From here it is a long downhill to Strahan on the coast where we have a rest day, and then over King William Pass to Lake St Clair. We finish with a long downhill to our farm stay and back it is back to the attractive city of Hobart, Tasmania’s capital. 

    We visit two National Parks where we will enjoy a close encounter with unique Australian wildlife. You will experience early colonial history and stay at some of the very best lodges in the State. A reasonable level of fitness is required.

    Accommodation: 3 and 4*. Includes The Lenna in Hobart and luxury wilderness lodge

  • I have recently returned from a fantastic vacation with your company, the two week tour of Tasmania. I have taken 6 other wonderful bike tours with 3 other companies; your guides, Brett Gilbert and John Pauley were by far the best guides I have had. Their local knowledge and generous help make this trip the best tour I have taken. They generously shared their knowledge and time. In all ways they went beyond what could be reasonably expected. They are gems.
