Wilderness on Water Expedition Christmas Expeditions
- Duration: 5 Days (approx.)
- Product code: 5XMAS
Escape the Christmas and New Year rush in the amazing Tasmanian wilderness. These 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.
