Coastal Hikes and Great Lodges in a Magnificent Land Down Under


Tasmania, “the island at the edge of the world,” is a pristine realm of wild mountains, magnificent rainforests, and tranquil harbors and villages bathed in the vivid light of Down Under. You’ll experience it all with veteran—and beloved—Trip Leader James Fuss, an Aussie native and seasoned Tassie explorer. Mountain, coastal, and rainforest hikes bring you from the Cradle Mountain wilderness, a World Heritage Site, to the azure bays of the Freycinet Peninsula. Along with the adventure, you’ll savor the island’s great food and wine (James is a trained chef!) and the comforts of our carefully selected accommodations that include wilderness lodges warmed by roaring fires and cozy cabins overlooking the deep blue Tasman Sea.
