Heli-Hiking on Tasman IslandTasman Island, Tasmania

Hiking is so old hat. In 2022, Heli-Hiking is where it’s at.

When you go on a hike, you spend a lot of the time looking at the ground in front of you, concentrating on where your next step is going and making sure not to fall A over T.

It means you can miss some of the best views and bits of wherever you are. And when you’re somewhere as beautiful as Tasman Island, that’s not what you want to be doing.

The way around this? A Heli-Hike, which combines the stunning birds-eye vistas of a scenic helicopter flight with the endorphins of completing an epic hike.

Life’s an Adventure has released a three-day, Walk Three Capes itinerary combining the best of these two worlds. After a helicopter takes you to the top of the island, near the south-eastern coast of Tasmania, you’ll complete a two-night hike across dramatic cliffs and through lush rainforest, before eventually being escorted back to Hobart in a chopper like some sort of hiking mega-celebrity.

This is an epic way of spicing up of the regular hike; an amped up way of getting some fresh air and touching base with nature.

You can book this experience with or without the return helicopter to Hobart.

Prices start from around $1899 AUD.
