Life’s An Adventure makes national milestone
With the addition of two new walks in South Australia, walking tour operator Life’s An Adventure has now become a truly national walking company.
Up until recently South Australia was the only state Life’s An Adventure did not have walking destination, but soon pack-free guided tours in the Flinders Ranges and on Kangaroo Island will mean the company has a walk in every state.
“It’s been over ten years in the planning and it’s been an amazing experience to walk all the bucket list walks of Australia,” Life’s An Adventure’s owner Mark Norek says. “However I have really enjoyed trying to look at each walk from a different perspective – my clients’. Looking for ways to add a ‘wow!’ factor at the end of the walk, using only local foods and wines or trying out the best boutique accommodation in the area. I really wanted our tours to be amazing and good value.”
For catering meals on Kangaroo Island, Mark is using well-known chef Sue Persons from restaurant 2 Birds & A Squid that produces an amazing feast of local foods and delicacies. Also clients stay at one of the island’s best boutique accommodation, Kangaroo Island Beach Lodge.
In Flinders Island clients stay at Rawnsley Park and get to experience the best of the Flinders Ranges. This product is still being worked out so stay tuned. But it should definitely be on your hiking bucket list!
I asked Mark Norek about the very first guided walk he set up with Life’s An Adventure.
“The Six Foot Track, “ reveals Mark. “I had a competitor who gave their guests soup in a cup and made them have their food in the rain. Whilst we were on the other side of the road under a marque, serving hot soup, tea and coffee, and a smorgasbord of local foods. Some of their clients came over and asked who we were and we said ‘Life’s an Adventure’. They asked how much our tour was. It was $350 per person – half the cost of their tour. They were not amused!”
“It made me laugh and to know we were on the right track. Providing great value tours with our clients’ interests at heart, always willing to go the extra mile to make their tour memorable.”
