Why take a guided walk in Tasmania?

A terrific way to explore Tasmania is by a guided walking trip.

By choosing to do a guided walk, your company will handle all of the organizational aspects of the tour and deliver to you, the client a professionally researched and rewarding itinerary.

The beauty is that all the planning, preparation, food and transfers are organised for you, in advance, making your adventure hassle free.

One such guiding company - Adventure Seekers operate a 6 – day walk on the iconic Overland Track. The walk starts at Cradle Mountain and snakes its way through rainforests and past craggy mountain peaks to Lake St Clair.

What does a company like Adventure Seekers offer on their guided walks as opposed to doing the walk independently and arranging the logistics yourself?

Your tour begins and ends with the convenience of the company’s own transportation, which gives you the flexibility of when we start and end the walk and collect you from your accommodation rather than relying on a scheduled service.

Tour guides are the backbone of the tour. They ensure that your objectives are met and generally look after your wellbeing. Your guides will interpret the landscape, carry all of the group equipment and food thus allowing your own
packs to be light and manageable.

The meals that the guides whip up on specialist cooking equipment are hearty and flavorsome. You’ll enjoy dinners such as steak and vegetables, cereal and fruit for breakfast and gourmet sandwiches for lunch.

Safety on your tour is taken seriously and each guide is 1st aid qualified and trained in emergency procedures. Guides carry 1st aid kits and emergency equipment that includes an emergency locator beacon and a satellite telephone.

Maps of the track are also carried for guides and clients to reference.

The company also provides your accommodation while on the walk and uses Overland Track specific, 4 – season 2 – person tents.

Organizing your own Overland Track walk can be quite challenging and specialized equipment can be costly. A guided walk will ensure your safety, establish new friends and educate you about the special places that you will visit.
