With a positive and inspiring social atmosphere that  will create great memories and perhaps lifelong friends. We have planned a tour that covers this magical landscape of stunning contrasts, featuring pure white beaches, vivid mossy green boulders in a lush rainforest, and all the while tempting you with stunning mountain vistas. We’ll forge ahead in the rain or the sun with every day being different and every morning wake up fresh and excited about the day ahead. With a variety of walks, activities and tastings we'll satisfy your need for adventure and invigorate you plus give you some time to unwind and relax, because that's important too.

Grading - moderate

Participants should expect around 6 hours walking each day. The trex will very in conditions. There will be soft sand, sharp and uneven rock, scrambling over up to the peaks etc. The distances are not great however this almost irrelevant as the time and effort required is equivalent to much longer treks. Strength and agility will be important and as with any of our tours  the fitter you are for the activity, the more the attention moves from looking at your feet to experiencing your surrounds. Train for uneven terrain by finding a rough narrow bush track, even just your local park or sports field, and go for a lovely long walk in your trekking boots.
