This is a guided tour only which makes perfect sense as the track can be a bit tricky and lots of rope to help you climb the rocks. You will need a good level of fitness and not scared of heights but the climb is with it
We love our hiking, and this lived up to its expectation as a first class day trek. Our guide Dean Hiscox, was so knowledgeable, (and annoyingly fit - you could have at leased faked some huffing and puffing Dean :-)... Just amazing, and the knowledge that Dean shared with us on the geology, plants and animals built the whole experience... 更多
We visited Lord Howe in March 2017 and mostly had good weather apart from a few overcast windy days. We decided early on we wanted to climb Mt Gower. On recommendation by locals and after a chat with Jill at the boat shed we chose to go with Dean from Environmental Tours. We had a smaller group of 8 with... 更多
If you are going to the island, you MUST climb gower. Note:if you are nervous about your abilities, do the goat track (a trail on the island), if you complete top to bottom in <1 hour, you're good to go.
This is an experience one will never forget. It takes roughly about 5 hours to clime and about 4 to descend. It is invigorating, challenging but once at the top, the view is worth every step of the way and the feeling of accomplishment is wonderful.
Undertook the climb with Jack who Is a very informative guide and passionate about the island and its wildlife. A major highlight of a wonderful week. Views on the way up are spectacular and the mist forest at the top is very special.
My Gower climb is a strenuous challenging climb that takes about 8 hours is approximately 10 km with an elevation of 800 metres. The mountain can only be climbed with a guide and this time around we joined jacks tour. We were lucky to have a clear day so the views were amazing. The climb can be steep but those... 更多
I really did think i was fit, and yes I made the walk with the excellent assistance from Dean ( Environmental tours) , but be prepared to not be able to walk for a few days afterwards. I suggest you do some serious steep ascents and descents before embarking on this walk if you want to be trouble free over... 更多
It wasn't an easy hike but well worth the view from the top! Take at least 3ltrs of water. You can refill at a creek on the way. The hike is breathtaking. Jack the guide takes time for everyone to catchup and travel together. It is a must do on the Island and took us 9hrs return.
The hike up Mt Gower was one of the highlights of my stay on Lord Howe Island. The views at the top are simply stunning. Jack, the tour guide and naturalist, was a wonderful source of information on the unique flora and fauna of the mountain and island in general. Although the views are amazing, you will work hard for... 更多
