Guided Hikes


Experience the magic of Thredbo’s alpine area by foot with one of our experienced guides.

There is a variety of guided walks available. Guests can choose from the moderately paced family oriented hikes, like the Kosciuszko Summit Hike, to hikes that take you through the high, windswept regions among the tallest peaks in the country; such as the Townsend Hike. There is no better way to get to know our high country, with its beautiful wild flowers, unique landscapes and stunning, rugged peaks than to get amongst them with a knowledgeable guide leading the way.

Guided hikes recommence 16 November 2019 and run until 3 May 2020.
Outside of the season, check the Trail Status for self guided hikes.
