Australian specialist walking operator, Tasmanian Expeditions (a division of World Expeditions), has launched a wilderness experience like no other – a five-week traverse of Tasmania. The Great Tasmanian Traverse is the first of its kind in Australia, and will cover the island state from north to south over 39 days.
The Great Tasmanian Traverse will cover some of the most remote and beautiful wilderness regions in the world. It is the company’s most ambitious wilderness adventure ever. Highlights of the adventure include a week rafting down the iconic Franklin River, trekking in Tasmania’s pristine World Heritage regions, a memorable scenic flight over the West Coast and Southwest World Heritage area and a transfer to Strahan on the famous Stormbreaker yacht.
Beyond the sheer magnitude of this unique adventure, the Great Tasmanian Traverse is about exploring the more remote parts of Tasmania that encapsulate the pristine and untouched wilderness environments that Tasmania is so well known for. Over 39 days, trekkers will encounter a myriad of passes ranging from moderate to challenging and journey through landscapes that have remained untouched for centuries.
This is the ultimate Tasmanian adventure for the experienced trekker looking for their next challenge in one of the last great wilderness areas left on the planet. The inaugural fully-guided traverse will start in Northern Tasmania at the beginning of the Coast to Cradle Trail and finish at Cockle Creek, Australia’s southern most town.
The Great Tasmanian Traverse trip includes all accommodation (including pre & post trip hotel nights), camping and rafting equipment, transfers, all meals (including a celebratory dinner in Hobart), food drops (where applicable), and professional guides.
There is just one departure commencing in February 2018 and will be repeated in future years with a single date.
