Missing Europe? Get a taste of Italy in the High Country

March 15, 2021 Visit Oceania No Comments Email Email

Based in Bright, the 4-night hiking tour includes wine tastings, fabulous dinners with award-winning wines in local restaurants, a unique foraging and pasta-making experience and a visit to La Fiera Italian festival in Myrtleford.

The highlight of the tour is a rare opportunity to forage for wild mushrooms and learn how
to make pasta with one of the region’s best-loved Italian chefs, Patrizia Simone. Learn the
secrets of pasta-making in a hands-on class with Patrizia, followed by a delicious lunch, in
her own home. The celebrated former restaurateur, cooking school owner and author of
‘My Umbrian Kitchen’, grew up in the Italian region of Umbria.

The tour includes hikes in the hills above the pretty country towns of Bright and the
heritage-listed gold mining village of Wandiligong, and from the plateau of Mount Buffalo to Lake Catani and the iconic Mount Buffalo Chalet. Hiking days range from 3 to 13km and are punctuated by Hedonistic Hiking’s trademark picnic lunches, savoured in scenic locations at local farms and on the shores of Lake Catani.

The 4-night Celebrate Italy in the High Country tour costs AUS$2375pp, based on 2 sharing, fully-inclusive of accommodation in the Colonial Motor Inn in Bright, all activities and meals with wine.
