Tasmanian adventure travel specialist, Tasmanian Expeditions, reports surging demand for its self-guided itineraries and has launched a new 6-day cycling exploration of Tasmania’s east coast highlights to meet growing demand.

The new Self-Guided Cycle East Coast Highlights is designed for more independent cyclists who want all the logistics of their holiday taken care of along with a greater level of flexibility.

Tasmanian Expeditions General Manager, Michael Buggy, says that demand for self-guided travel is an emerging trend in travel to the island state.

“We’re experiencing strong growth in demand for our self-guided trips and we’ve responding to that with our new East Coast cycle trip,” Mr Buggy says.  “The beauty of this style of travel is its flexibility – the trip can depart any day for any number of people, with bags transferred to your final night’s accommodation.”

“We supply route notes and maps, arrange all accommodation and offer 24/7 emergency call service,” he said.

The Self-Guided Cycle East Coast Highlights begins on the stunning coastline near Bicheno and continues on through vineyards and berry farms to Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay and concludes on historic Maria Island.  The trip costs $1,195 per person (twin share), which includes all transfers, four nights cabin style accommodation and one night camping on Maria Island (with guests collecting camping gear on the island), bike hire (electric bikes hire also available), route maps and national park passes.

As well as the new cycle trip, the self-guided Overland Track and Walls of Jerusalem walks have both been very popular, and we are in the process of developing additional self-guided itineraries to meet demand”.

Meanwhile, two new fully guided trips include a photography tour designed to help budding photographers enhance their skills and nurture their creativity and a dedicated family trip in one of the island’s most popular national parks.

Flinders Island Photography with Andrew Thomasson is a 6-day photo tour of the scenically stunning Flinders Island, one of the largest islands in the Furneaux Group off the northeast coast of Tasmania.  Learn new skills as you photograph stunning coastal vistas, rolling green pastures as well as incredible flora and bird and wildlife.  Your escort, Andrew Thomasson, is a co-author of the Complete Guide to Digital Photography online course and an acclaimed expert in digital photography and film. The trip departs 3 November 2019 and costs $2,795 per person (twin share), including all meals and 5 nights camping in exclusive camp sites.

Cradle Mountain Family Adventure is a 3-day family friendly active holiday to iconic Cradle Mountain National Park. Families with children aged 8 years+ will enjoy walks within the park with the opportunity to summit Cradle Mountain, close encounters with native wildlife including the Tasmanian Devil and a chance to visit Mole Creek’s limestone caves and complete a maze.  The family adventure is priced at $1,295 per person (twin share) and departs 21 December, 2019 and 11 January and 10 April 2020.
