For the ultimate Tasmanian wilderness experience, this 11 day rafting trip takes advantage of the access the Franklin River offers to the prized summit of the Frenchman's Cap. From Irenabyss on the Franklin River, you will undertake a one-day ascent from the river to the quartzite dome of Frenchman's Cap (1443m), from where you can enjoy 360 degree views over the entire south west wilderness. Returning to the river you'll continue this classic rafting adventure, meeting the challenges of Great Ravine, Propsting Gorge and Newlands Cascades. The massive temperate rainforests of the lower Franklin and Gordon Rivers are an inspirational reminder of what was saved when the Franklin Dam was stopped in 1983. Led by experienced rafting guides, this rafting expedition is recognised by many as one of the greatest wilderness experiences on earth. Our trip was named the best river journey in the world by Outside Magazine in 2012. Join on us on this real wilderness experience of a lifetime.
