Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

 

About Us

Tasmanian Expeditions

Tasmanian ExpeditionsTasmanian Expeditions, a division of World Expeditions, is the most experienced operator of treks and adventure travel holidays in Tasmania. Our heritage of pioneering new wilderness experiences is without peer. We own and operate the most comprehensive range of adventure holidays available across Tasmania's varied landscapes, from the idyllic Bay of Fires to the classic Overland Track and the mighty Franklin River.

We were the first operator of bushwalks on the legendary Overland Track in 1968 (as Craclair), then we pioneered the first descent of the Franklin River in commercial whitewater rafts in 1978 (as Australian Himalayan Expeditions, now World Expeditions). Tasmanian Expeditions pioneered commercial  trekking on the South Coast Track and the Walls of Jerusalem. In recent years Tasmanian Expeditions has been the first to develop commercial treks in to the Frenchman's Cap and the Western Arthurs.

We believe adventure travel enriches peoples life. Our core philosophy is to provide high quality, small group active wilderness experiences in Tasmania that follow a sustainable tourism philosophy. We aim to help you relish every moment of your travel experience.

 

Innovation and adventure is at the core of what we do, it has been since the start.

It is the depth of experience that guides and informs us everyday as we take groups of adventurers in to some of Australia's - and the world's - greatest and most precious wilderness areas. We hope you can join us.

Original We look beyond the horizon to find new and exciting remote adventures. We’re passionate about shaping the next generation of adventure travel in Tasmania, and constantly seek different ways, routes and alternatives to meet our clients dreams and desires.    

Authentic Everyone who works with us, from our office staff, ground staff and guides are the "real deal". Our team is comprised of actual trekkers and travelers who have visited, or lived in, many of the destinations we go to. Our team is a network of highly specialized, and qualified people.  

Trustworthy When we travel to the most remote destinations in Tasmania, we do so with the most experienced guides, reliable equipment and responsible travel ethics in mind. Travellers can feel confident they are in safe hands while on a Tasmanian Expeditions trip.  

Responsible We are committed to responsible travel and true sustainability. It was a commitment formed when the company was established, and today, in the face of a multitude of threats to the environment, our commitment is stronger than ever.  In going places that other people don't, we run the risk of bringing tourism and its negative impacts to new places. We aim to "leave no trace" in both an environmental and cultural sense, and be sustainable.  

Excellence Our aim is to provide you with exceptional service and experiences; from your initial contact with us until you are happily home after an adventure of a lifetime. We rely on a comprehensive feedback system from our guests to ensure that we hear your compliments and concerns and continually do all in our power to improve our experiences.  

Resourceful Our ground staff are experienced in all elements of wilderness guiding, which means no problem is too big or small. With intellect, creativity and resourcefulness aim to tackle any obstacles that come our way.
