From the first moment we knew the organisation would be very good, but our expectations were exceeded time after time. Our guides Hannah and Marisa were just fantastic, as was Ed when we arrived at the Lodge. We cant wait to do the Cradle Mountain Walk!</p><p>Hot footbath and cold beer, what a combination!</p>A Tale from...

To be immersed in such an amazing and isolated environment is of course a significant aspect of our trip but our gratitude goes whole heartedly to our guides Cody and Erin. We were curious and delighted in all that was around us, taking it all in at such a relaxing pace, with plenty of time to let our minds wander as we journeyed along spectacular beaches that just seemed to keep giving. Cody and Erin were both so perceptive to our interest, they had an amazing amount of knowledge and a sensitivity to the surrounds, its ecology and history, which they so generously shared with us. Their insights brought such depth to the experience, with the understanding that comes with seeing so much more in the beauty of this breathtaking place.<br />Cody and Erin&#39;s warmth, humour and ease certainly galvanised the group and the conversations that we shared over absolutely divine meals and a few glasses of wine. We met such wonderful and interesting people who shared travels and tales from across the world. We were a diverse group so everyone had an interest in each other, from what we did on a day to day basis to the adventures that come with the joys of travel. <br />Everything was organised incredibly well, we felt informed about our plans for the trip and everyday as it unfolded, which we learnt about over a delicious hot breakfast that always included the hospitality of freshly baked bread. <br />This was our first walking experience and it certainly will not be our last with plans already afoot for the Cradle Mountain Huts walk. We loved the walking, the swimming, the company, the laughter, the spa (you have to have a bath, truly decadent and so relaxing!) and the scrumptious meals. <br />Thank you again to Cody and Erin, we appreciated your energy, your humour and the considered care that you showed to each and everyone of your walkers. Thank you for sharing The Bay of Fires with us, this is certainly the best holiday that we have ever had…very special indeed.</p><p></p>A Tale from...

Thanks to our fantastic guides Cody and Lou. Both extremely caring, considerate and passionate. They both love Tasmania and this is evident in their explanations of all flora and funa. Thank you for your help up the rocks!!! Thank you to Shelley at The Lodge. A wonderful cook and such a well organised team. Nothing is too much effort for any of the team. Great experience and an easier walk after completing the Cradle Mountain Hut to Hut 2 days earlier. Very lucky we had stunning weather for both trips. </p>A Tale from...

They were unfailingly cheerful, always available, consistently helpful, very knowledgeable and clearly committed to both their roles as guides, and to promoting Tasmania and its stunning wilderness. They managed to meet all the varied needs of our group, as confirmed by the feedback we kept hearing from the other 8 members, both throughout and after our time in the Bay of Fires. They were spoken of only in the most glowing terms!<br />We were amazed at how hard your guides work and the hours they put in; it seemed Nikki and Anna never rested. And not only were they full of energy and enthusiasm whenever we encountered them, they were also great cooks! <br />We feel especially fortunate to have had these two women with us for the four days of our walk.</p><p></p>A Tale from...

We were fortunate to see plenty of bird life and other wildlife and the scenery was spectacular. The gourmet meals were terrific and we enjoyed both Forester Beach Camp and of course The Bay of Fires Lodge. Thank you to our fantastic guides.</p><p></p>A Tale from...

We get to Tassie and all the stress and worry just disappeared the minute Cody and Kate greeted us with huge genuine smiles. Love at first sight. <br /><br />Those two made the trip. Yes we had stunning weather. Yes it&#39;s picture perfect. Yes our group of walkers were fun and just lovely. But what made it was the input and effort from Cody and Kate. Endless smiles while working darn hard morning noon and night. They were professional. Engaging. And charming. <br /><br />The massage with Cecilia was mind blowing and Toms cooking Devine. What an amazing set up you have. Best holiday I&#39;m a long time and we travel a lot! Congratulations to you all. <br /></p>A Tale from...

It was bit challenging for me as I haven&#39;t done anything like that before. I met some great people, had great laughs and conversations, learnt heaps and experienced the most beautiful environment. Matt and Linton our guides and Tom at the lodge looked after us so well. A unique holiday experience I have recommended to all my friends and family. Good for the soul.</p><p></p>A Tale from...

The guides, Vince and Di went out of their way to be helpful, and their knowledge of the area plus bush walking and culinary skills were put to good use. Our fellow walkers, previously unknown to us, were very amiable company and we shared with them an extremely worthwhile four days. We were more &quot;senior&quot; in years to most of the group but managed to complete most aspects of the tour without too much stress. Thank you for the opportunity to experience your great wilderness area in such comfort.</p>AFR - Trek for a foodie and nature lover2013-04-05T00:00:00Ztag:www.bayoffires.com.au,2013-04-05:/blog/97/australian-financial-review-trek-foodie-and-nature//<div class="body"><p>The Bay of Fires Lodge walk a gourmet adventure holiday following Tasmania's stunning north-eastern coast, writes Katrina Strickland.</p></div><ul class="attachments"><li><a href="http://www.cradlehuts.com.au/cradle3-static/pageblog/attachments/AusFinReview2013.pdf" title="Download this attachment" class="attachment type-pdf"> The Australian Financial Review April 2013 <span class="attachment-details">PDF File &ndash; 2.5 MB</span></a></li></ul><br style="clear: both;"/>A Tale from...

I believe they both made the trip that extra special for me and for this I would like to recognise them and thank them both again. <br /><br />To put things in perspective, I love travelling, walking and experience new things, however, this was the first time , I camped and carried a back pack ( okay i am a bit of a princess), and I am paranoid of snakes etc etc. However, both Cody and Kate were great with me on the walk and went out of their to make me feel extra comfortable and enjoy my experience. Both were extremely knowledgeable and their love for the environment was infectious. My appreciation for our natural environment has been boosted as a result and I look forward to future treks. <br /></p><p></p>A Tale from...

Not being seasoned walkers made for some challenging - but ultimately rewarding - moments. </p><p>Our delightful guides, Diana and Ed were exceptional. From their first cheery greeting and firm handshake when we got off the bus, to their knowledge of all things botanical/environmental, plus their culinary skills and constant &#39;joie de vivre&#39; made the entire experience very, very memorable. Those two were indefatigable! </p><p>The vistas were breathtaking and the food and accommodation were beyond our expectations. In fact, the whole walk was!</p><p>As a group, we were trying to nail down what the &#39;x factor&#39; was with the organisation, staff and experience, and could only really put it down to high calibre company values and an enrolling mission that each and every one of the staff seem to embody. For this, the organisation must be saluted. </p><p>So thank you all, once again, from the bottom of our hearts (and our weary, blistered soles). <br /></p><p></p>A Tale from...

Our guides were Cody and Diana.<br />All four of us had a fantastic experience and really enjoyed our time on the trek. It was a relaxing, fun and refreshing experience. This was particularly due to our excellent guides.</p><p>Cody&#39;s enthusiasm, knowledge and sense of fun ensured that all members of our group had an entertaining and enjoyable experience. He is hilarious and has a warm and inclusive manner. Di&#39;s warm and friendly nature and her obvious appreciation and enjoyment of the environment also encouraged us all to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. Although relatively new to the job, she was wonderful. Tom was a relaxed and inviting host at the lodge, and his cooking was truly outstanding. Our time at the lodge was really enjoyable, thanks largely to the hospitality and atmosphere that Tom creates.<br />Your staff really are fantastic at what they do and helped us enjoy a fantastic experience. </p>A Tale from...

We enjoyed very much. <br />We have so many unusual but pleasant experiences.<br />1. One night with no electricity. No light but sound of ocean. <br />2. No man-made debris on the beach. Only see weeds, shells, and sometime debris derived from fish. <br />3. Clear and clean ocean. A little bit cold water required us a little bit difficult decision to get into the ocean. Then we could be extraordinary refreshed in return.<br />4. Various wild flowers and trees. <br /></p><p></p>A Tale from...

Hannah and Ed led our walk. They were enthusiastic, thoughtful, well informed, accommodating and a delight to be with. We congratulate the company on providing such a memorable experience. We are now considering the Overland trek - guided of course!</p>A Tale from...

Tassie turned on the weather for our party of 9 persons, thrown together for the trek. Plenty of time for some entertaining conversations whilst wandering along Tassie&#39;s pristine coastline, to be greeted by a chilled Tassie wine and gourmet feast at the culmination of the day, even brekky was 5 star!!<br />Thanks also to Tom at the lodge.</p>A Tale from...

Every day was invigorating, stimulating and energising. Every night was like a dinner party: great company, food and wine - well earned after the days&#39; activities. We had high expectations of our Bay of Fires experience and they were definitely exceeded. Above all, it was fun!</p>A Tale from...

The coastal landscape, birdscape and seascape were exquisite - I can still hear the waves rolling in and crashing onto the shore. And our guides, Ed and Joel, were wonderful. It&#39;s great to see two young guys so worldy, educated, passionate and proud of the Tassie wonderland. <br /></p>A Tale from...

Four days might not seem like a long time away but the experience makes it seem a lot longer. The guides are knowledgable, very accommodating and culinary wizards! Even though the days are planned, you don&#39;t feel rushed or pressured in any way. So thank you Shelley, James and Harley for a wonderful escape. I will never forget the experience.</p><p>Gail</p>Kate Ritchie OK magazine January 20122012-04-21T00:00:00Ztag:www.bayoffires.com.au,2012-04-21:/blog/89/kate-ritchie-ok-magazine-january-2012//<p style="float: right;
