Multi-Activity

If your idea of the perfect holiday is one that challenges your mind and body each day and is jam-packed with adventures, activities and exhilaration, then perhaps a multi-activity adventure is in order.

If you can’t choose whether you want to trek, cycle, paddle, or raft through a destination, why not do them all? Our multi-activity adventures include two or more activities that allow you to truly experience a destination using a variety of means, whether it’s on foot, by bike or boat. After all, there's no better place to discover the great outdoors than getting up close and personal with the elements.

Each trip is crafted to make sure you get the most out of the destination; taking advantage of Tasmania’s stunning scenery by purposefully featuring several different activities and environments... all you need to do is make sure your adventurous spirit can keep up.


At Tasmanian Expeditions we offer a range of exclusive adventure holiday experiences as diverse as Tasmania itself. Our tours are an opportunity to challenge yourself in nature, tick off those bucket list destinations and get out into the island's pristine wilderness and truly find yourself.

We’re continually amazed by the remote, rugged and diverse landscapes that Tasmania offers and do everything we can to preserve its unique environment. Our planned itineraries explore some of the most remote destinations in Tasmania, and while our guides organise the nitty gritty logistics, you get to spend more time enjoying the scenery and surrounds. There’s no detail too small, no surprise too extraordinary, and no nuance too subtle when we set the stage for your memories. Our experienced operational team make it their aim to ensure travellers have peace of mind on their adventure, so park permits, entry fees, meals, snacks and accommodation are all organised for you, while our guides troubleshoot any obstacles that are encountered along the way. 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.


Tasmanian Expeditions is committed to responsible travel and true sustainability. We have an exceptional record of successfully utilising minimum impact procedures to ensure that the wilderness values that inspire us are undiminished by our activities. Our passion for the Tasmanian wilderness is at the core of our values, we are informed and guided by this, ensuring that everything we do is carefully managed for sustainability. Our environmental policies together with your help and co-operation will ensure that we can safe guard the pristine wilderness areas in which we operate.
