Australian adventure travel company, World Expeditions, has announced a new, one off, 7 day snowshoeing and trekking expedition deep in the springtime Snowy Mountains wilderness.
The challenging Hannels Spur and Blue Lake with Tim Macartney-Snape expedition is a unique opportunity to learn mountaineering skills and alpine travel techniques from one of Australia’s greatest ever mountaineers in one of Australia’s most beautiful alpine regions.
With a challenging 1800 vertical metres ascent up the western fall of the Snowy Mountains from Geehi Flat (450m) to the summit of Mt Kosciuszko (2,228m), Hannels Spur is the greatest vertical ascent of any walk in Australia.
With opportunities to ice climb in the vicinity of the Blue Lake in the heart of Australia’s alpine wonderland, this rarely walked route takes in the three highest peaks in mainland Australia – Mt Kosciuszko 2228m, Mt Townsend 2209m and Mt Twynam 2195m (weather permitting).
Tim is a world-renowned mountaineer (two times Everest summiteer), explorer, international speaker, author, entrepreneur and twice honoured Order of Australia recipient.
The 8 day Hannels Spur and Blue Lake with Tim Macartney-Snape departs Jindabyne on 5 September 2020 and costs $2,990 per person twin share, which includes all meals, 6 nights wilderness camping, 1-night campground, transfers, use of a World Expeditions trek pack which includes a quality sleeping bag, sleeping bag liner and insulated mat, the use of a climbing/snow travel pack including crampons, harness and snowshoes and all safety equipment including group medical kit and emergency communications and all necessary permits.
Like all World Expeditions branded itineraries, the trip will be operated with the company’s strict CovidSafe protocols in place, including single tents for all single travellers.
World Expeditions is Australia’s longest established tour operator and is highly respected in the industry for its excellent safety record and well known for its long history of pioneering new adventure itineraries, modes of travel and destinations.
