Stewart Wheelhouse

Stewart Wheelhouse, a Welshman by birth, has spent the past two decades leading adventures and expeditions throughout the world. He has traveled the length of Africa, written guidebooks on cycling through Europe, and led expeditions in Asia and Australia. A wonderful storyteller and traveling companion, Stewart spends his free time between trips exploring the backcountry trails of France and the Alps, and sailing the Mediterranean. When the Northern Hemisphere gets too cold, he migrates to Tasmania to lead our trips there and enjoys sailing and fishing with his mates in the D`Entrecasteaux Channel.

Wild Tasmania
Excellent is not sufficient to rate Stewart; he was over the top in all respects. His knowledge of the areas we hiked was encyclopedic, his management of the logistics flawless, his enthusiasm for the trek infectious. His off-hike (dinner, recreation) companionship was always lively and his stories were priceless. Stewart is fantastic at what he does, makes all guests super comfortable with the hike, and the gave us the confidence that we could succeed.
