Tasmania East Coast Classic
Tasmania is an island roughly the size of West Virginia or Switzerland, located 240 km off the south-east corner of mainland Australia, with its neighbour being Antarctica, 2000 km south this is a very special place to visit. On this extraordinary cycle tour, you'll coast along peninsulas weaving together pristine white sandy beaches, relict rainforest, fossil- filled cliffs, azure waters, pink granite peaks and famous national parks, our Tasmania coastal tour will completely dissolve you in the true essence of Tasmania. Our six- day journey down the East Coast from Launceston to Hobart offers challenging riding days, infused with dramatic landscapes, historic villages, charming accommodations and an abundance of local Tasmanian delicacies. Savour superb food and delicious wines along the way to tempt any gourmet guru. Compared to the rugged mountainous west coast, the east is blessed with a calmer, mild climate with ever-changing terrain and scenery. This East Coast cycling tour takes you through a temperate natural paradise nearly 300km from north to south.
"The five day Launceston to Hobart tour is a perfect introduction to tour cycling or if you are time poor. We cycled around 450kms of the east coast and took options for side visits such as the World Heritage site of Port Arthur courtesy of a car trip with Adam, our wonderful support and guide. With all the details taken care of by Cycling Tours and with Adam ferrying our clobber from point to point, we were free to make the most of the unspoilt coastline, white beaches, aqua waters, ancient rain forests and tiny villages of Tasmania."
