Lost World Adventure Canyon Experience
Information not currently available.
Approximately 7½ hours
Welcome to the sport of canyoning. This adrenalin-filled activity is becoming ever more popular as it involves negotiating a steep-sided section of river wearing a wetsuit, buoyancy vest and helmet. Some of the techniques used include hiking, swimming, jumping off small waterfalls and sliding down natural waterslides.
Today, you'll participate in a relatively gentle introduction to canyoning on this tour that runs on the beautiful upper section of the Dove River within three miles of Cradle Mountain. It is a soft adventure, suitable for families.
Journey through lovely quartzite gorges surrounded by a blanket of button-grass and ancient King Billy Pines. Of the 2½ hours spent in the canyon about an hour is spent in the water. Walk and float through a beautiful section of the Dove River, carved out by a glacier 20,000 years ago. There are a number of small rapids and some optional jump rocks for those who want to spice things up a bit. You will have a great opportunity to experience nature from this water-level point of view.
The rugged mountains and glacial lakes along with the abundance of wildlife in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park make it one of Tasmania's most popular natural tourist destinations.
