Why you should take a guided walk in Tasmania

By choosing to do a guided walk, your guiding company will handle all of the organizational aspects of the tour and deliver to you, the client a professionally researched and rewarding itinerary.

At Adventure Seekers we operate multiday walks such as the iconic Overland Track, South Coast Track and Walls of Jerusalem to name a few.

This blog talks about what Adventure Seekers offer on their guided walks as opposed to doing the walk independently and arranging the logistics yourself.

Your tour begins and ends with the convenience of the company’s own transportation, which gives us the flexibility of when we start and end the walk and collect you from your accommodation rather than relying on a scheduled service.

Your tour guides are the backbone of the tour. They ensure that your objectives are met and generally look after your wellbeing. Your guides will interpret the landscape, carry all of the group equipment and food thus allowing your own packs to be light and manageable.

The meals that the guides whip up on specialist cooking equipment are hearty and flavorsome. You’ll enjoy dinners such as risottos, beef stews, cereal and fruit for breakfast and gourmet wraps for lunch.

Safety on your tour is taken seriously and each guide is 1st aid qualified and trained in emergency procedures. Guides carry 1st aid kits and emergency equipment that includes an emergency locator beacon and a satellite telephone.
Maps of the track are also carried for guides and clients to reference.

The company also provides your accommodation while on the walk and uses activity specific, 4 - season 2 - person tents.

Organizing your own walk can be quite challenging and specialized equipment can be costly.  A guided walk will ensure your safety, establish new friendships and educate you about the special places that you will visit.
