Award-winning tour operator, Walk into Luxury has announced the launch of the four day Lake St Clair Walk in Tasmania, a new signature small group walk experience based out of Pumphouse Point. Weekly departures of the signature walk commence on 17 December 2021, with bookings now available (booking link below).
The four-day all-inclusive experience departs from Hobart and showcases the best walks at Lake St Clair and nearby Mount Field National Park. Carrying only a day pack, guests will discover Russell Falls, Lake Seal and Lake Dobson at Mount Field; and Shadow Lake, Platypus Bay and Echo Point at Lake St Clair, with 35km covered in total.
There is the chance to view Lake St Clair and the surrounding mountains from the lake one day, and plenty of wildlife viewing opportunities with wombats, wallabies (padymelons), echidnas and platypus, just a few of the locals able to be spotted on the walk. At the end of four days in the Tassie wilderness, guests visit a Tasmanian distillery for an exclusive tasting and lunch by the Derwent River before returning to Hobart.
Three nights’ accommodation is included at boutique property, Pumphouse Point, located within the world heritage listed Tasmanian wilderness area and overlooking Lake St Clair.
Each evening, guests relax around cozy lounge fireplaces overlooking the lake and enjoy three-course dinners with local Tasmanian wines. An in-room larder of local cheese, chocolate and other provisions is also included.
Walkers sleep in the sought-after Pumphouse rooms perched at the end of the jetty on Lake St Clair, offering the chance to fall asleep to the sound of the water lapping against the walls. A perfect end to a day walking in this pristine wilderness area.
The four day Lake St Clair Walk is priced at $3150 per person, twin share, and departs weekly on Fridays from 17 December 2021 to the end of April (with subsequent seasons expected to run from Oct-April). Transfers from Hobart are included.
