Tour description provided by Viator

Rising to a height of 1270 metres, The Mt Wellington Descent is by far the most fun and exciting activity if you only have limited time in Hobart. This three-hour adventure departs daily to the top of Mt Wellington with a thrilling bike ride back to sea level. For your slice of Tasmanian adventure, book this tour today!

Take in the views from the distant mountain ranges of the southwest, to the sprawling city of Hobart below, then follow your guide on a downhill descent of the mountain. Watch the alpine terrain gradually being replaced by a magnificent forest and stop on several occasions to take in the varying views and snap a picture or two.

The winding mountain road takes you down to the foothills where you can choose to experience the thrill of the off-road section. Finish the 21 kilometer cycling trip after riding through the outer suburbs of South Hobart and Battery Point and complete the journey in Salamanca Place on the waterfront of Hobart.

This Mount Wellington cycling tour is fun designed for all levels of fitness!

Off-road Riding:
For the more adventurous amongst the group, there is an opportunity to let loose on approximately 5km of off-road riding. Those not interested in hitting the dirt trails, can happily roll down the hill with the support van behind and meet the group at the resting and snack spot around 20 minutes later. The whole group will then ride together into the city of Hobart. This trail goes via historic Battery Point and concludes in Salamanca Place on the waterfront of Hobart.
