All meals will be prepared for you, featuring local produce and wines, so you can sit back, relax and put your feet up after an enjoyable day’s hiking. This is small group touring at its best with a maximum of 8 guests per tour.

A Pack Free Walk
One of the biggest drawcards of this tour, is that our guests won’t be asked to carry their clothes or overnight bags for the entire tour, this is a Pack Free Walk. This is a big advantage for our guests, in that you will avoid carrying an additional 8kg or more on your back. With Life’s An Adventure you will carry as little as your water bottle, camera, lunch and hat each day!

2 nights at Adventure Bay Retreat
Getting a good nights rest, is an essential part of any walking holiday. We won’t ask you to sleep in tents, on our walking tour you will stay at the charming Adventure Bay Retreat. We stay in a combination of both The Lair and Lodges buildings featuring sweeping biews and modern facilities (see “Your Night’ tab for more details). We know you’ll have a comfortable stay and a restful night’s sleep no matter what the weather.

The Wow Factor
On day 3 enjoy a ‘Wow” moment when we finish our walking tour with a superb Bruny Island cruise. See amazing sea caves and sea cliffs of Bruny Island and if we are enjoy some up close marine life encounters such as dolphins, seals and whales. An incredible way to finish our journey.

Personalised Tours
Our group sizes are small and intimate with a maximum of 12 people, we find this delivers a more personalised service, a great social environment and has less impact on the environment.”

Our Guides
Our guides are proudly 100% Tasmanian. We call them our CEOs – Chief Experience Officers and it’s their job to ensure your tour exceeds your expectations. Our chief guide Danny has a wealth of knowledge on Bruny Island, which enables him to make the landscape come to life. Add to this his compassion and wonderful sense of humour and you have a winning combination!

Bruny Island is famous for its wonderful local produce including cheeses, wines, berries, oysters and smoked meats. An important element of your walking experience with Life’s an Adventure is the delicious local food we provide each day. Your walking days will finish with a stop at a local establishment to sample and select food for our evening meals. For example on day 2, we stop at Bruny Island Winery to enjoy wine and cheese tasting and select our wines for our evening meal that night.

Guide Barry was a sheer delight! He could not do enough for us. Helpful, friendly, and even his puns and singing were welcomed! He went out of his way to look after us. I could not give him enough praise - thanks Barry! Meals were unbelievably good. Well and truly exceeded expectations! Salmon, oysters, cheeses, breakfasts, lunches, dinners, ragout, omelette - great chef Barry and great suppliers! And, of course, the wine :) and the tastings . Accommodation was excellent - Beautiful, well appointed, comfortable, great location. Tour above expectations - Have mainly done unguided hikes, but this walk confirmed that Life's An Adventure is the way to go. Really could not fault it for a mix of walking and gourmet experience. Barry also made sure that we kept to time, but we were never hurried

Guides and meals excellent as well as accommodation - a very nice to stay in one place for 2 nights. The fresh croissants & bread in the mornings were a nice touch. The boat trip on day 3 was very good. Tour - Above Expectations - Have done a few Life's an Adventure tours. They are well run, I like that I don't have to carry a full pack, and reasonable value for money.

Guides were excellent. Joel was a really good guide I have had Barry as a guide before He was really good the first time This time he has matured and become more confident and was even better than before The guides you choose are really good at their jobs and ensure the treks are very successful. Meals were excellent - The bruny island hotel was beautiful. I did not expect such great food from such a remote place. The food the boys cooked was very good too. Accommodation was great. Because I have been on your tours before and I knew the high standard that you provide. And I was definitely not disappointed
