Five Day Frenchman's Cap Guided Walk

Operated by Tasmanian Hikes
Frenchman's Cap Guided Walk - a stunning 5 day return walk
On this trek you will spend five unforgettable days trekking through the Franklin - Gordon Wild Rivers National Park to your destination - the white quartzite dome of Frenchman's Cap (1443 metres). Beginning your journey at the world famous Franklin River, you will walk across button grass plains, through dense rainforest and among wild mountains. You'll camp at stunning Lake Tahune, nestled below the mountain's towering 450 metre south-east face before ascending to the summit of Frenchman's Cap itself. In fine weather, you will experience spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and forests of Tasmania's south west wilderness before retracing your steps back to the Franklin River and your coach journey home. See our website for a detailed itinerary.
