Who are We and who are High Country Hiking Tours?
We’re a couple with great passion for the outdoors. Hiking, skiing, kayaking, bicycle riding and mountaineering are some of the activities we love to enjoy in the great outdoors.
Our names are Romana and Kevin and we are High Country Hiking Tours.
My name is Kevin and I have been camping and 4WDriving in the Victorian High Country for over 40 years. After meeting my partner Romana I have embarked with her on hiking adventures that have taken me to some amazing parts of the world such as the Overland Track in Tasmania, the Milford Track in New Zealand, Tour du Mont Blanc in the European Alps and Everest Base Camp Track in Nepal, to mention just a few, but much of the hiking I have done in the last 20 years has been through the Victorian High Country.
As Base Camp Manager I will be there to provide transport when required and support/assistance to the guide and all the participants.
My name is Romana. I am the Co-Founder of High Country Hiking Tours and your Guide. I am originally from the Czech Republic, but have been calling Australia home since 1982. My passion for mountains and travelling on foot, whether it’s hiking or mountaineering, has taken me many amazing places around the world, from the high peaks of the Himalayas, through the valleys and over mountain passes of New Zealand, over rocky cols and across glaciers in the European Alps to summits of mountains like Gran Paradiso and Mount Kilimanjaro, but it is the Victorian High Country where I really feel at home and where I enjoy spending most of my time. And it’s here, my backyard, that I look forward to sharing with you.
We have been hiking in the Victorian High Country for over two decades. There are so many places to explore, so many tracks to hike along, breathtaking views, endless photo opportunities and the most amazing sunrises and sunsets you will ever get to see.
We have taken many friends along on our hikes, and seeing how much they enjoyed the experience has made us realise, that we need to share this with others.
We know there are many people out there that would love to go on a hike, but don’t have the equipment they need, or are hesitant going on their own, or they don’t know how to plan it, where to go, what they will need to take along, or don’t believe that they are physically capable of doing it.
This is where High Country Hiking Tours comes in. We have put together number of hiking tours that cater for different levels of fitness, experience and adventure needs to provide anyone with an opportunity to hike this magnificent area rich in fresh air with an experienced guide who has a passion for the High Country.
