Overland Track

This is a fabulous trip for moderately fit people - age we found is no bar.
Victor and Ashley our guides were very encouraging, and we were lucky with beautiful weather. Cool at night and mostly fine days. The camp cooking was exceptional for wilderness cuisine. The wild flowers were stunning especially the prickly scaparia, of many hues. The buttongrass moorlands with mountains behid were vistas from heaven. This should be on all eco-friendly Australians' bucket list.

Lake Como Walk

Straddling Lombardy and Piedmont, the great lakes of northern Italy have been a popular holiday destination since Roman times, evidenced by the array of lavish villas and sumptuous gardens which line the shores. Away from the affluent holiday centres is a feast of walking trails exploring the forested valleys, mountain tops and traditional villages which have retained their unique character. The old tracks which cross the mountains on the west side of Lake Como, used even today by the local people to reach the alpine pastures called 'Monti' ('Munt' in the local dialect) have been transformed into a series of way marked trails offering exceptional views. This program takes in the highlights of Lake Como within a flexible framework with a selection of walks of varying lengths and difficulty to choose from along the Monti Lariani (Lario being the ancient name of Lake Como). With accommodation in a small family run hotel there is ample opportunity to experience the excellent regional cuisine allowing a complete appreciation of the area.
