The Hikes – Choose the perfect one for you

Whether you are a pro hiker ready to tackle a four-day trek amid rock paths, mountains and creeks or just wanting to escape the city for some fresh air on a two-day adventure just two hours from Sydney, we have the perfect hike for you.

You will be camping under the stars for these two adventures with the company of just six or eight other fellow hikers, and your two, professional wilderness guides will have everything you need, including a lightweight tent, a sleeping mat and a sleeping bag. No need to worry about food or camping equipment: meals and all the necessary equipment for camping will be all sorted.

Ruined Castle: A moderate, 26km overnight adventure

This is a two-day mini-adventure that will see you admiring iconic sights including the Ruined Castle – a beautiful rock formation that offers sweeping views over the valley - and the mighty Mt Solitary, commanding the landscape of the Blue Mountains.

This is a moderate hike requiring a reasonable level of fitness. It’s a two-day experience, with the second day being over eight hours of walking.

Kanangra to Katoomba (known as K2K): A challenging, 45km four-day hike

Located four hours south west of Sydney, Kanangra-Boyd National Park is an untouched and secluded wilderness area. This challenging and rewarding four-day hike will see you starting in Kanangra walls and walking all the way to the historic town of Katoomba, covering over 45km.

This is an extreme grade walk, requiring a high level of fitness. Both first and last day are long and you can expect to walk around six to eight hours across challenging terrain.

The Equipment & Food – No need to worry about a thing, even your backpack is included

Included in your package is literally everything you can think of - except for your hiking boots and clothes that is!

All the camping equipment will be supplied by your guides, including stove, pots, tarps, tents and sleeping bags, hiking backpacks and first aid kits.

During your hikes, you will indulge in freshly prepared food, including delicious porridge for breakfast, healthy wraps for lunch packed with vegetables, salami or falafel, plus fruit and snacks are always available during the day.

Three-course dinners are prepared with the freshest ingredients in season. Think hearty soups, gnocchi and a delicious crumble to finish. Drinks are also provided: from tea to coffees all the way to hot chocolate, you won’t have to worry about a thing.
