Tasmania Drifter Tour (HG) @ Tasmania | Australia

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.
