If you like a walking holiday, why not try one based on a yacht? With the Lady Eugenie, a 75-foot luxury ketch, as your home after each day’s walk this is a holiday like no other. Wineglass Bay Sail Walk is a four-day walking holiday beginning at Orford and concluding at Wineglass Bay. There’s also a six-day trip that takes in the Tasman Peninsula. The fully-guided experience includes superb three-course dinners served aboard Lady Eugenie or, conditions permitting, under the stars. If you’ve never finished a hike by arriving to a linen-topped dining table complete with Tasmanian oysters and Apogee bubbles, you’d best book a berth on Lady Eugenie. Barefoot beach dining is just one of the memory-making offerings, along with climbing a peak on Maria Island, sailing up the Freycinet Peninsula coastline and keeping watch for migrating whales.
