Experience the legendary Franklin River with a man who was instrumental in saving it. After rafting the Franklin in 1981 Geoff Law was drawn to help protect the Franklin wilderness, ultimately becoming the official spokesperson for the historic Franklin Blockade of summer 1982-83. His passion for the river and Tasmania wild places led him to relive his accounts in the 'The River Runs Free' and now you have the chance to hear them first hand. Join Geoff on one of the world's last great wild rivers which forges through the rugged south west of Tasmania, through deep gorges, quiet pools and magnificent temperate rainforest. This expedition provides a true wilderness adventure, an experience we pioneered back in 1978. Regardless of the river level, you will be in good hands as our professional guides have an exceptional safety record. Despite the remoteness, our guides will ensure that the preparation of delicious meals will exceed all expectations. Any descent of the Franklin is demanding and while previous rafting experience is not required, some wilderness knowledge, along with a sound level of fitness, is essential. Join on us on this special wilderness experience, named the best river journey in the world by Outside Magazine.
