What You Can Expect
Take in the views from the distant mountain ranges of the southwest, to the sprawling city of Hobart below, then follow your guide on a downhill descent of the mountain. Watch the alpine terrain gradually being replaced by a magnificent forest and stop on several occasions to take in the varying views and snap a picture or two.
The winding mountain road takes you down to the foothills where you can choose to experience the thrill of the off-road section. Finish the 21 kilometer cycling trip after riding through the outer suburbs of South Hobart and Battery Point and complete the journey in Salamanca Place on the waterfront of Hobart.
This Mount Wellington cycling tour is fun designed for all levels of fitness!
For the more adventurous amongst the group, there is an opportunity to let loose on approximately 5km of off-road riding. Those not interested in hitting the dirt trails, can happily roll down the hill with the support van behind and meet the group at the resting and snack spot around 20 minutes later. The whole group will then ride together into the city of Hobart. This trail goes via historic Battery Point and concludes in Salamanca Place on the waterfront of Hobart.
The guides were very enthusiastic and willing to cater to all levels of adventurousness. The guide took us on an off road path which really made the trip for us. Would definitely recommend!!!
Such a great way to see Mount Wellington and so much fun.
Our whole family (ages 27 to 72) had a blast! The guides were so personable and truly accommodating of all skill levels and paces. We had a wonderful time and are still talking about it! Just a wonderful adventure. Highly recommended!
Great experience, terrific views from the top. Definitly recommend it as one of must dos for Hobart!
This tour was amazing!
This is a must do in Hobart. We had a fantastic time. Tour guide was friendly and informative. Awesome views from the summit. And a easy ride for all fitness levels. Don't hesitate book now as it only takes small groups of 12 at a time.
I loved it...couldn't take the smile off my face all the way down the mountain. The ride had a bit of everything...fast on-road and off-road, scenic parks and quaint historic avenues. Our guides were informative and I felt i was in good hands.
We had a great time going down Mt Wellington bike riding. Everybody could go in their own pace and our guide was always checking the group.
It was absolutely fantastic. Views were awesome, speed spot on to ensure fun but safe activity, bikes in good nick and the tour guides were really friendly and informative. Perfect family activity to do with teenage kids.
fantastic trip - i was genuinely worried about my safety having read some comments on trip advisor ( i booked the trip knowing my partner would like it) but the guides were very patient with my slow descent (brakes on full all the way for the first part) and I was never made to feel I was holding people up
The guides still encouraged all of us to partake in the off-road part - (I was not the only one anxious about this) - but in fact that part of the descent felt a lot safer and after that part the ride back into Hobart was a joy
so yes fantastic trip very scary at the start but in fact well manageable for anyone over 8 who can ride abide as they say
