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.
Tasmanian 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 alpine challenge of the Western Arthurs, 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 and our newest trek, the Coast to Cradle trail.
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.
