Add to Itinerary

From the waterfront of Hobart, to the summit of Mount Wellington this tour will bring you an adventure unlike any other. Our journey begins with an uphill climb, but lucky for you this is done in a vehicle. We are headed towards the summit of Mount Wellington and once we reach it you are in for a treat with spectacular views spanning Tasmania. Bring your camera and make sure to soak in the views - this corner of the planet makes for a once in a lifetime experience you won't forget!

Once at the summit and after a safety briefing we are headed downhill. The ride is approximately 13 miles total, and all downhill. The ride is moderate, though if you find it to be too strenuous there is a support vehicle following your ride.

Back in the city we will pass some of Hobart's highlights before returning to our meeting point. These highlights include Cascade Brewery and Gardens, the Female Factory, Hobart Rivulet track and Battery Point, Salamanca and Hobart’s waterfront.
