Mix it up with multi-activities to get more from your Tasmanian Adventure

Tasmania is a haven for adventure enthusiasts with its enormous variety of landscapes crammed into what is a comparatively small area. Mountains, ancient forests, beautiful coastline, picturesque bays and pristine rivers are all part of what makes Tasmania such a sought-after destination.

The variety of landscapes can make it difficult to choose how best to enjoy the experience. Will it be a stunning short walk, a world-class multi-day trek, cycling through a beautiful forest or along a magnificent coastline or rafting on a pristine river?

Whether your ideal holiday is an introductory tour or a full-on, adrenalin-pumping challenge, a multi-activity holiday may be the best way to experience all that’s on offer.

Multi-activity adventures provide different perspectives on destinations. By mixing up the activities, you can gain access to more remote attractions that would otherwise have remained inaccessible.

Including a kayaking activity, for example, means you get to see a coastline from a different perspective. As well as making the experience more memorable, trying something new might lead to a new interest or, at least, to consider a similar experience in a new destination.

Creating variety in your activities can make you feel that you’ve seen and done more.

You don’t need the skillset of an advanced rower to join a kayaking tour. You need a willingness to have a go. If you love Tasmania for its many attractions, it’s time to get out and explore it by walking, trekking, cycling, kayaking and rafting. Consider a multi activity trip to get the most from your next adventure.
