Larapinta Trek

We had a wonderful time on our recent 8 day Larapinta Trek. The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the assistance of our guides Adrian and Craig. Their flexibility, steady temperaments, knowledge, friendship, experience, sense of humor and ability in the kitchen took all the difficulties out of our experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything that should have happened happened, and happened when it should have. They made the whole experience for us a simple walk in the bush. We could not reccommend them more highly.

Overland Track Winter Trek

During winter the high peaks along the Overland Track, as well as certain sections along the trail, receive a dusting of snow, turning the Cradle Mountain National Park into a winter wonderland. Walking the Overland Track during winter is a very different experience to summer and offers a more serene and tranquil environment. The trail is much quieter, the lakes are frozen and the snow ensures the surrounding landscapes provide unique photographic opportunities. Fit and hardy walkers who are prepared to camp during winter and carry a full pack will truly enjoy this unforgettable winter trek along the graded trail through the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Every step will lead to new discoveries and some of Mother Nature's finest alpine creations. This winter itinerary is designed to travel at a pace to allow you to fully appreciate the parks many highlights and side trips you'll undertake along the way. Food drops and modern lightweight equipment will keep your backpacks relatively light while your experienced guides will help bring the track to life and teach first time snowshoers the finer points of this popular style of alpine travel.

traveller reviews

This trip was an amazing experience. I have always wanted to see snow, visit Tasmania and do the Cradle Mountain Hike; so what better holiday than Tasmania in winter. The Tasmanian Expeditions experience was great. The booking was easy and came with a huge amount of information to prepare for the trip. Once we arrived and completed the introduction meeting and preparing for the trip we embarked on an adventure. The guides (Wes and Darren) were amazing and can not talk highly enough of them, well prepared and excellent cooks. The hiking was a mixture of hard and easy days but it was rewarding in the end. If you have time to do the trip i highly recommend Tasmanian Expeditions to lead you on the track.
