Cycling Tours of Tasmania

A great way to experience much of the natural beauty that Tasmania has to offer is to tour the island on a bicycle and one of the tour operators specializing in cycling tours is Island Cycle Tours. Island Cycle Tours offers a variety of cycling tours for people ranging from 12 to 60 years of age. Cycling enthusiasts can choose from 3, 4, 6 or 7 day tours and each day ends with a hot shower and a relaxing evening enjoying the fine Tasmanian cuisine.

All tours start in Hobart, the beautiful capital city of Tasmania and finish in historic Salamanca Place in Hobart where transport to local hotels is available.

Mountain bikes and other accessories, such as helmets, are supplied in the tour price but people are able to take along their own bicycles if they wish.

Key sites along the way include the Freycinet National Park, Maria Island, Swansea and some of the other wonderful east coast sites such as Nine Mile Beach. This is one of Tasmania's most spectacular areas and is a favorite vacation spot for many locals. Cottage and Lodge accommodation will be provided.

For the true cycling enthusiasts, these 2 tours can be combined for a 7 day tour called Best of the East.

The 6 day tour is the Glimpse of Gondwana. This tour will allow you to explore some of the magnificent areas that are located further inland and some areas of the West Coast of Tasmania. Key areas visited are Cradle Mountain, Mount Field National Park, the Gordon River, Strahan and Lake St. Clair. Accommodation will be provided at Lemonthyme Lodge, in Strahan Village and wildnerness cabins and cottages.

A final tour, not mentioned above, is a downhill delight. You will be driven to the top of Mount Wellington overlooking much of South Eastern Tasmania and enjoy a 4,000 foot descent. You will descend through alpine terrain that gradually changes into magnificent forest. Stop at lookout points to admire the views and take a photo or two and finish up back in Hobart.

For an experience that you will never forget, visitors to Tasmania should consider cycling around Tasmania.
