Bay of Fires Lodge Walk, Tasmania
Bay of Fires Lodge Walk, TasmaniaThe compact island state of Tasmania, off Australia's southeastern tip, carries an outsize reputation for wilderness and untrammeled natural beauty. This leisurely four-day walk (departing daily October-April) traces the magnificent coastline known as the Bay of Fires, on the fringes of Mt. William National Park in north-eastern Tasmania. Led by friendly and knowledgable local guides, the experience immerses you in the pristine environment; highlights include traversing soft sandy beaches strewn with red-tinged boulders, exploring hidden rocky coves, and kayaking the Ansons River. And when it comes to bunking down, forget roughing it: hikers stay one night at the Forester Beach Camp, a tented camp tucked in a protected dune swale on a white-sand beach, and finish at the Bay of Fires Lodge, an award-winning hideaway with indigenous-inspired spa treatments and incredible food paired—naturally—with Tasmanian wines.
