A serious heli adventure in Tasmania

So you are visiting Tasmania. You are feeling energetic and are cashed up.

Life’s An Adventure, the company that offers a range of multi-day walking experiences across the island state, has just announced an addition to its Walk Three Capes three-day itinerary - the opportunity to heli hike on Tasman Island.

Guests can select from three experiences as part of their Tasman Peninsula pack-free adventure: a boat cruise with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, a 20-minute scenic flight over Cape Pillar and Tasman Island, and now the chance to land and walk on Tasman Island.

“We are thrilled to partner with Rotor-Lift Aviation to offer this once in a lifetime experience as part of our Three Capes adventure,” says Mark Norek, CEO of Life’s An Adventure.

“It is an extraordinary opportunity to walk on an island few have ever had the opportunity to see up close.”

The Tasman Island helicopter landing is available to four guests on each tour.

It includes a flight over the dramatic coastline with its dolerite capes, before landing on Tasman Island for a guided tour led by a Rotor Lift pilot. Tasman Island is home to sea birds and seals as well as offering views of dolphin pods and migrating whales.

The island is part of Tasman National Park and Rotor Life has exclusive permission (you have to ask how and why) to touch down on the outpost.

Guests who land on the island then enjoy a direct scenic flight back to Hobart by helicopter, skipping the two-hour bus return. This is followed by transfers to their desired hotel.
