FALLS TO HOTHAM CROSSING

 

What to expect:

Immersing oneself in nature is at the centre of all of Alpine Nature Experience’s offerings. The Falls to Hotham hike is no exception, but it does take a different approach to the way you hike: no need to carry large packs or a tent – it is done for you; so is dinner and the campsite set-up, but with a twist: the tents are hoisted between trees!

Alpine Nature Experience’s all-inclusive two to three days self-guided (or with an experienced guide) curated hike from Falls Creek to Mount Hotham is designed to maximise comfort while still being an active weekend getaway.

This iconic hike has been designed with exclusivity in mind. Very limited weekends are available and group numbers are capped at 8 people to ensure a personalised and unforgettable experience. Head to the booking page to see available dates.
Add-on options are available for a fully- catered experience, such as return transport from Melbourne, or an accompanying local walking guide.

Fitness level

Whether you opted for self-guided or guided hike, we can adapt the route to your fitness level. Regardless, a reasonable walking fitness level is essential to ensure that you enjoy the hike. You need to be prepared to walk for several hours for two days in a row on uneven terrain.

The Falls to Hotham crossing is often referred to as a GRADE 3-4 – MODERATE TO CHALLENGING Walk.
Distances are longer, up to 20km. Steep hill sections and rough surfaces. Walking experience and active lifestyle necessary.
