Frenchmans Cap

4 Days, 3 Nights




Walk Grade: Moderate/Hard

Sentinel of Tasmania’s south west wilderness, Frenchmans Cap dominates a wild landscape of pristine lakes and impossibly jagged peaks. At 1446m ‘The Cap’ towers above the iconic Franklin River (crossed on the first/last day) and offers up extensive views of some of Tasmania’s most remote wilderness. In itself, with its quartzite bulk and sheer eastern face it is quite simply, awesome!

‘Frenchmans’ is a journey with a destination, where the rewards are well worth the effort. We take four days to best appreciate the area, attempt a climb to the mountain summit (weather dependent) and explore the surrounding ridges and lakes. The 46km track does represent more of a physical challenge with it’s rough terrain and long, steep climbs.

Pick-Up/Drop off is from Hobart.
