    Razorback – Hotham to Harrietville (22km) Level 5, 7hrs $195 per person

    One of the most iconic hikes in Australia, and with good reason, but you can do it in style with Hedonistic Hiking! A personal guide will entertain you with stories of the history, flora and fauna of the area whilst looking after you on the trail. The morning hike follows the Razorback Ridge climbing steadily with panoramic views across the Victorian High Country. After 3.5 to 4 hours we reach Federation Hut set amongst the snowgums. If time permits there’s the opportunity to climb to the summit of Mount Feathertop, Victoria’s second-highest mountain at 1922m. Enjoy a delicious and nutritious Hedonistic Hiking lunch en route before a long descent to Harrietville where you will be met with a celebratory cold beer, bubbles or soft drink before being returned to your accommodation. We will depart at 07.30 am and return approximately 5.30 pm.

     

    Falls Creek to Hotham Alpine Crossing (23km) Level 5, 7hrs $195 per person

    This hike follows one of the most stunning sections of the Australian Alpine Walking track. Set out from Falls Creek over the beautiful Bogong High Plains, which are covered with wild flowers in spring and early summer. A personal guide will talk you through the history, geography and highlights of the area whilst looking after you on the trail. Descend to the Cobungra River and picnic at the charming Dibbins Hut before climbing up past another cattlemen’s hut to reach Mount Hotham. Here you will be met with a celebratory cold beer, bubbles or soft drink before being returned to your accommodation. We will depart at 07.30 am and return approximately 5.30 pm.

     

    Mount Buffalo Hike and Picnic (12km) Level 3 – 4 $165 per person

    This is a half-day guided hike taking in some of the most beautiful areas of the Mount Buffalo plateau. Hear the stories of indigenous culture, the early settlers and the gold rush which shaped the history of the Ovens Valley. We walk off the beaten track to explore some of the rocky outcrops which give fabulous views over the surrounding valleys. Enjoy a gourmet Hedonistic Hiking picnic lunch en route and, in the afternoon, there is the chance to continue walking, relax and have a swim in Lake Catani or see the iconic Mount Buffalo Chalet before returning to your accommodation. Departures will be at 08.30, returning at approximately 4 pm.

     

    Buffalo and Brunch or Buffalo and Bubbles (3km) Level 2 $110 per person

    Mount Buffalo National Park is one of the oldest in our country and home to some unique plants found nowhere else in Australia. Explore some of the distinctive rock formations on the plateau and enjoy amazing views on a short but spectacular guided hike suitable for all levels of walking. Finish the experience relaxing and enjoying the view with a hot drink and tasty brunch or, later in the day, with bubbles and a selection of canapés. This is a perfect experience to celebrate a special occasion or for people wanting more hedonism and less hiking! Departures from Bright/Porepunkah will be at approx. 08.30 or 16.00 depending on the time of year. Let us know if you prefer to drive yourself and meet your guide on the mountain.

    Your guides will discuss with you the terrain and the kit you will need before setting off as this is dependent on the experience you choose. For full day hikes we recommend sturdy walking boots, with good ankle support.  Walking poles would be an advantage, especially on steeper sections.  For the Mount Buffalo hikes, sturdy hiking shoes are recommended. Thongs are not permitted.

    The weather in the mountains is prone to sudden changes so be prepared for varied conditions and have suitable warm layers and waterproof clothing.   The weather forecast will be checked 24-48 hours in advance and you will be contacted if the guides believe the conditions will not be suitable for your chosen hike. If possible, an alternative will be offered or we will organise a voucher or refund.
