Warren Windsports are hosting another Tasmania Drifter Tour – an “Epic hang gliding adventure to fly Tasmania’s coastal mountains, sand dunes, and inland XC sites”.
Besides reaching flying milestones, this Tasmanian adventure is aimed at offering a trip of lifetime, with the mission of touring into some scenic and rugged areas with the 4×4, loaded up with friends.
In between flying, we’ll take the chance to explore Hobart, Mt. Wellington, or one of the many pristine bays.
- 9-day tour
- Accommodation, breakfast and lunch included in price ($2750 AUD)
- No wincludes Bruny Island! We’re looking to pioneer some dune flying on Bruny Island
- More Mt Wellington options! Dates will be outside the Hobart Regatta (which will free up the landing zone for Mt. Wellington)
- Warren Windsports team pilot, Rohan Taylor, will also be on board as a driver and team pilot.
Only six spaces available. Contact Warren Windsports for more info.
