The Tasmanian Traverse is a unique annual adventure which combines Tasmanian and World Expeditions’ five most highly rated and popular trips over a five-week period. We travel by trail, raft, light plane and yacht to cover Tasmania from the quiet, rural communities of the North to the wild and isolated South. On this epic adventure we trek from the sandy beaches of Penguin, through valleys and canyons, gradually climbing up to the highlands over six days on the Coast to Cradle Trail. We then walk the world renowned Overland Track which journeys through the middle of Tasmania, including our highest peak (Mt Ossa) and our most famous (Cradle Mtn). After the dolerite dominated landscape of the Overland, we trek into quartzite country on the Frenchmans Cap Trek, aiming to summit this amazing peak. Next we kick off our hiking boots and pull on wetsuits for eight days Rafting the Franklin River. At the end of the Franklin River, the famous Stormbreaker yacht will sail us down the Gordon River to Strahan on the mid-west coast. From here we board a light aircraft to fly over the West Coast into Southwest World Heritage Area. The final leg of this journey treks the South Coast Track, a rugged and wonderfully rewarding trail that weaves over and around mountains, beaches and rivers to Cockle Creek – Tassie’s most southern township. The traverse ends in Hobart, our beautiful capital city. Between each trip you will have two or three nights in comfortable accommodation to relax, reflect on the journey so far, and recharge for the next section. Your guides for each section are extremely passionate about the unique areas and delight in sharing their knowledge and uncovering the hidden stories of the land with you. There is scope to return year-after-year to complete different sections if you are unable to join in its entirety.By adventuring via land, sea and air you will come away with a complete understanding and appreciation of what makes this magnificent state just so special, and why it is known as having some of the best trekking in the world.
