This six-day walking journey through the iconic Overland Track, gives visitors unprecedented access to Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair National Park, where Australia’s deepest freshwater lake resides. This 40-mile trek has been hailed as the best bushwalk in Tasmania. Guides enlighten walkers on the flora, fauna, geology and history of this magical, pristine landscape that comes with moss-covered forests, spectacular waterfalls, swimming holes, and majestic eucalypt mountains - all hopping with wildlife. Each evening, guests retreat to the only private accommodation along the trail where a glass of Tasmanian wine, a comfortable bed, and tasty homemade meals await. Each sustainable, solar powered eco hut has been discreetly located off the main trail and provides a hot shower, and twin share accommodation. Afternoon tea is served daily, and there’s a relaxing lounge area, an open-air deck, and a selection of games and books on offer in each hut. Expert guides lead intimate groups across the ancient landscape, and become chefs each evening, dishing up fresh Tasmanian flavors and fine local wines. They’ll also carry your gear, leaving you with only a manageable, lightweight backpack. The Cradle Mountain Huts Walk operates seasonally, from October to May each year.
