Award-winning tour operator Walk into Luxury has a new range of Australian journeys, which combine local food and wine, exceptional accommodation and unique nature-based experiences including some of Australia’s best day walks on bucket-list private adventures.
Local guides and drivers are included, along with exclusive experiences like private wine tastings, destination dining experiences, heli-hiking to remote gorges and more.
While there are several SA tours on their books now, their first South Australian signature journey is bucket list material.
This 5 day journey showcases the best local food and wine and coastal clifftop hiking of the Fleurieu Peninsula staying in two of the region’s most exclusive luxury properties. First enjoy two nights at clifftop Naiko Retreat overlooking the wild coastline and green valleys of Deep Creek Conservation Park. From here you’ll enjoy two day walks with a private guide on the best southern sections of the Heysen Trail taking in clifftops, rolling green hills and breathtaking beaches. The luxury retreat includes three bedrooms, each with ensuite, making this an ideal base for a family trip or friends travelling together. The second half of this journey includes food and wine experiences at McLaren Vale’s D’Arenberg Cube, and Penfolds Magill Estate, with an exclusive lunch and Grange tasting at Penfolds. Complete your journey with hosted bushwalks, tastings and a visit to the Botanic Gardens while staying at Mt Lofty’s exclusive new Sequoia suites.
But wait, there’s more. Three other ridiculously good tours are on offer in SA, if you’re wanting to explore our country, without having to leave our state.
The new 4-day lodge-based Arkaba Walk offers a chance to discover the best of the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park as well as the unique Arkaba conservancy and Elder Ranges returning to the comfort of Arkaba Homestead each night.
For those wanting a longer adventure, there’s now also an 8-night True North Cruise – Southern Safari. This all-inclusive cruise departs from Adelaide and showcases the best of South Australia’s magnificent coastline from Kangaroo Island to Coffin Bay and the remote Pearson Islands and beyond. Starting in Adelaide you’ll taste the best of the Barossa before you set sail for Victor Harbour and Kangaroo Island for your first few days onboard. The helicopter, tender boats and wonderful True North team of guides and naturalists will ensure you get the most out of your time in each location. Other highlights of your cruise include countless fishing opportunities, swimming with seals and visiting remote islands, and eating oysters fresh from the ocean in Coffin Bay. The onboard dining is another cruise highlight with destination drinks and local seafood adding to this special South Australian experience.
If you’re wanting to stay closer to home, the final SA tour is a 7-Day Barossa and Flinders Ranges Safari. Stay at one of Barossa’s premier food and wine properties, Hutton Vale Farm, where you will be hosted by the 7th generation Angas family and enjoy exclusive Barossa food and wine experiences over two days. After a private charter flight direct from Hutton Vale to the Flinders Ranges, you’ll join the Arkaba Walk for the next four days where you’ll discover the Arkaba conservancy and the surrounding Elder, Heysen and Flinders Ranges. Enjoy returning each night to the luxury comfort of Arkaba Homestead to enjoy local South Australian food and wine. Lunch in the Clare Valley is included on your private transfer back to Adelaide.
Luxury journeys in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria are also on offer, along with four of the Great Walks of Australia which are weaved into Walk into Luxury’s recommended journeys.
Founder and Managing Director, Nikki King, said “We are proud to partner with many of Australia’s best experience and accommodation providers in delivering premium private journeys for those that love keeping active while discovering Australia’s landscapes and natural attractions.”
Walk into Luxury’s new suite of products includes several family-friendly luxury journeys and walks, which Nikki identified was a gap in the Australian market.
“When I started a family I soon realised the incredible walks and journeys we love as a couple aren’t as readily accessible when travelling with a little one, so I wanted to address that and provide options that can be tailored to suit the family dynamic.”
