This four-day walking experience takes you to the edge of the world – The Three Capes Lodge Walk is a fully-guided walking experience along Tasmania’s dramatic Tasman Peninsula with the wild Southern Ocean as your constant. A boat voyage, dolerite spires and 37,000 years of history all form part of the journey.
During the day you will experience the spectacular coastal cliffs and pockets of eucalypt forest first-hand. If you feel like being challenged, why not venture out onto the Blade where you will have spectacular views of Tasman Island.
Each evening you will settle into one of our architecturally-designed lodges with hot showers and twin/double room accommodation. There is ample deck space and lounge areas where you can unwind and enjoy Tasmania’s finest food and wine. On nights two and three, our Lodges have a purpose built relaxation pavilion where you can enjoy a massage or our plunge bath.
At the end of your journey we can drop you back into Port Arthur, the airport, or your Hobart accommodation.
