Wilderness on Water Expedition 5-day Christmas Expedition
- Duration: 5 Days (approx.)
- Product code: 5XMAS
Escape the Christmas and New Year rush with 5 days in the amazing Tasmanian wilderness. These 5 days will be an unforgettable expedition with challenges, rewards and remote landscapes.
Bathurst Harbour and Port Davey, in Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area, offer a combination of sheltered wilderness harbours, rugged ocean coastlines, remote islands and wild rivers. There are no roads and no settlements. Discover spectacular destinations in the best way possible - by water, at paddling pace.
Our guides know this pristine wilderness intimately – all the sheltered bays and open beaches, the peaks and islands, every hidden corner and comfortable campsite. After a spectacular flight to the remote airstrip at Melaleuca your days will be spent exploring one of Tasmania’s most remote and beautiful coastlines, paddling through perfect reflections in the tannin-stained waters, beneath mountains that rise from the shore and stopping in at sandy beaches.
This trip has a flexible itinerary with time for optional short walks or relaxing on the beach. You will camp each night in remote and hidden campsites with delicious food with a glass of wine each evening.
Previous kayaking experience is not necessary, but it is important to have a sound level of fitness, be comfortable with wilderness camping and, most of all, have a sense of adventure.
Trip package includes:
Transfers between Hobart and Cambridge Airport, scenic one hour return flight to Melaleuca, all meals (with an emphasis on fresh Tasmanian produce) and refreshments, a glass of wine each evening, good quality camping equipment, two highly-experienced kayaking guides, comfortable and stable double sea kayaks, all specialist paddling equipment (good-quality paddle, paddling jacket, spray deck, buoyancy vest, duffel bag, and dry-bags) and national park entry fees.
