Grade

Distance

50km

Overview

Join us for 4 days and 3 nights exploring this stunning coastal region; the Fleurieu Peninsula. Situated 40 minutes from Adelaide, this picturesque pocket of Australia is famous for the McLaren Vale wine region (hence the wine element of this trip). But don’t be fooled this is still very much a hiking holiday with one or two vineyards visits to sample the local wines.

You’ll spend the days hiking with a mix of heathlands and coastal hikes, there’ll be an afternoon of paddling along the Coorong River (hopefully under the perfect sunset) and seeing as we’re in wine country, we have to visit a winery or two.

This is a perfect mix of outdoors, nature, sampling local produce and exploring new places. Plus you’ll be a group of like-minded people all wanting to live life to the full. Our mini-hiking holidays are designed to get your fix of nature, hiking and adventure over a few days, we take care of everything, so you can switch off, relax and enjoy your time away.
