Victorian Alps Tour
On a mostly dry and flat continent, nothing delivers a challenge like the snow-clad and mountainous Victorian Alps. This five day 400km tour incorporates challenging peaks, historic townships, the Victorian rail trail and award winning wineries. Highlights include the ascent of the magnificent granite infused Mount Buffalo and the gruelling climb up the highest peak in the region, Mt Hotham. Ride the Muscat Trail to wineries fringed by gum trees in Milawa and feast on fresh berries, cheeses, chestnuts, chutneys and trout in the Alpine Valleys. See the courthouse where Ned Kelly stood trial in the historic gold rush town of Beechworth and old cattle huts in the Bogong Plains. This tour is designed for those who love climbing!
"It was lovely to visit the Alps in the summer. The small towns are full of character and there is a real summer buzz, which we were not expecting. We also really enjoyed the challenge that this tour offered. There were some great hill climbs, mixed in with some spectacular scenery and we also managed a few nice walks in the afternoons."
