Discover the secret side of Cradle Mountain on canyoning, packrafting or Dove Lake kayak tour. Canyoning involves putting on a wetsuit and helmet and swimming, floating, abseiling, walking and jumping your way through a section of river - like white water rafting without the raft. Packrafting is fast becoming a very popular way to explore the Tassie wilds. On our tulumpanga/Alum Cliffs trip, we pack everything you need for three days of fun rapids and two of the most stunning campsites you will ever see. Packrafts are stable and easy to paddle, so no previous experience is necessary. The Dove Canyon Tour is a full-on day involving an abseil into the canyon, followed by six waterfall jumps and slides and a number of other obstacles. No experience is necessary - just a reasonable level of fitness and the ability to swim. The Lost World Canyon is a much easier and shorter option, great for families and available to participants aged at least eight. You'll be getting up close and personal with nature. Canyoning tours depart from the Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre. Packrafting tours depart from Launceston weekly Dec-March. Dove Lake Kayak tours run daily from the Dove Lake viewing shelter, in our hand-built King Billy pine kayaks.
