Overland Track

The trip was amazing all round. We had a great group of people and the weather could not have been better. I was truly impressed with the guides and their passion for Tasmania. The trip was well run without feeling overly structured. Great scenery, great food and amazing people exceeding all of my expectations

Sri Lanka by Bike

Tea plantations, jungles, national parks and wonderful beaches, Sri Lanka is ideally suited to travelling by bike. From the palm fringed west coast, we cycle inland through a multitude of Buddhist and Hindu monuments and colonial heritage that characterises the country's rich cultural history. Our journey leads deep into the rain forest of central Sri Lanka where monks conduct prayers in harmony with the forest before continuing to the hill town of Kandy with its splendid botanical gardens and lush tea plantations. We continue to the rock fortress of Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa - the medieval capital of Sri Lanka, where we swap our bikes for jeeps and take a wildlife safari in the Minneriya National Park.
