The adventure starts with a night staying at Alpine Nature Experience’s Eco-village with a delicious chef prepared meal, before tucking in for a comfortable night in their unique tree tents.
The day in the mountains begins with the smell of fresh coffee, eggs, and bacon. Then guests start the epic downhill bike ride to Omeo, a 1400m drop over 55km of wide turns in amazing alpine scenery. After a quick coffee in Omeo, they ride along the Cobungra river before leaving the Bingo Munjie grassland and making their way on the flat but windy road through the deep forest towards Angler’s rest. There, the iconic Blue Duck Inn and its cold beers await.
After a meal and an optional nap by the river, guests are picked up at the pub and transported back to Alpine Nature Experience’s eco-village to enjoy pizza night (Sat only) by the fire before falling asleep looking at the stars from the comfort of their tent.
This iconic ride has been designed with exclusivity in mind with group numbers capped at 6 people to ensure a personalised and unforgettable experience. Tours are available on-demand - contact Alpine Nature Experience to discuss specific dates.
Add-on options are available for a fully catered experience, such as return transport from Melbourne and additional hikes or upgrade to our Premium Vista tent.
