When you join one of our trips, we want you to have peace of mind. In response to COVID-19, we’ve:
The Australian island-state of Tasmania is home to some of the planet’s most extraordinary natural wonders, from towering pink cliffs to world-renowned grapes—and charismatic marsupials found nowhere else on Earth. Join a curious cohort of Atlas Obscura and Tastemade travelers for an immersive, five-day exploration of Tasmania’s most vibrant national parks. Sip Tassie wine while searching for seals, sample locally sourced seafood under the stars, and stroll through the bush, keeping your eyes peeled for pear-shaped red bellied pademelon and famously fierce Tasmanian devils, among other endemic species that call this island home. Atlas Obscura acknowledges that this tour takes place on the unceded sovereign lands and waters of the palawa nations of lutruwita/Tasmania. We recognize that the connection these Traditional Custodians have to Country goes back thousands of generations and will continue long after us. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
The total cost of this trip is $1,730, based on double occupancy.
You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $230. When booking, please select the single room package option.
We’ll be staying at the Freycinet Resort for both nights of the trip. Tucked away in thick forest on the side of Mount Paul and surrounded by protected national park land, Freycinet Resort offers a private, peaceful experience. It’s the only resort on the mountain, and it offers unparalleled 360-degree views that encompass The Hazards, Friendly Beaches, Great Oyster Bay, and the Tasman Sea. Each private eco-certified lodge has a king bed and a private outdoor deck.
Our trip begins in Hobart in the morning on Day 1. We recommend you arrive in Hobart in the evening the day before our trip begins so that you can meet our guide and group first thing the following morning. Our trip concludes in the evening on Day 3. If leaving Tasmania directly after our trip, we recommend staying the night in Hobart and departing the following morning. If you’d like to extend your trip, we’re happy to provide suggestions for things to do and see in Tasmania on your own.
Travelers should feel comfortable walking two to four miles over the course of each day, spending time in nature, remaining on their feet for long periods of time, and sometimes walking on uneven terrain. Travelers should also be comfortable on and around water.
Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated, though in most cases ingredients can’t be substituted or omitted from particular dishes. If you have a severe allergy, please contact us to find out if this is the right trip for you.
We’ll be supporting local farmers and businesses with sustainable practices at each step of the way, from the restaurants to the accommodations we’ve selected for this trip.
