Wilderness week at Pinetrees
May 23, 2016 - May 27, 2016
Lord Howe Island is a gem of the natural world. Its dramatic scenery, lush subtropical forests, rare flora and fauna, pristine beaches and colourful marine life are breathtaking and unique. Sir David Attenborough once wrote that Lord Howe is “so extraordinary it is almost unbelievable… Few islands, surely, can be so accessible, so remarkable, yet so unspoilt.
An Adventure Week with Pinetrees Lodge combines the experience of local park rangers and scientists to guide you to some of the island’s most amazing places – by foot, boat and kayak. Along the way, the guides will provide expert interpretation of Lord Howe’s unique ecosystems and demonstrate some of the management practices that protect the island’s flora and fauna.
After a memorable day, you’ll return to Pinetrees for a hot shower, cold beer, exceptional 4 course dinner, great wine, open fire and comfortable bed. You may find the perfect balance between physical exercise, mental stimulation, social interaction and, well, some of life’s more enjoyable treats. And there’s no mobile phone coverage on Lord Howe!
Our Adventure Weeks are for people of all ages with a good level of fitness and interest in conservation. All groups are led by former park ranger and mountain guide, Dean Hiscox, from Lord Howe Environmental Tours, and supported by former United Nations ecologist, Luke Hanson, from Pinetrees Lodge.
