Who are We and who are
High Country Hiking Tours?
We’re a couple with great passion for the outdoors.
Hiking, skiing, cycling and mountaineering are some of the activities we enjoy.
We have hiked some of the most beautiful, remote and iconic trails on the planet and together bring a depth of experience and shared passion for walking and being in nature to every one of our bespoke, all-inclusive guided hiking adventures in Victoria’s stunning High Country.
Our names are Romana and Kevin, and we are High Country Hiking Tours.
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.
My name is Kevin and I have been camping and 4WDriving in the Victorian High Country for over 45 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 25 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.
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 that would love to go on a hike, but don’t have the right equipment, or are hesitant going on their own, or perhaps they don’t know where to go and how to plan a successful and most importantly, a safe hike.
This is where High Country Hiking Tours come in.
We have put together a number of affordable adventures that cater for various levels of fitness, experience and adventure needs, to provide everyone with an opportunity to hike this magnificent area rich in fresh air with an experienced guide who has passion for the High Country.
Whatever the adventure, our knowledge of the stunning landscapes of the foothills and alpine peaks of the area, as well as our expertise in planning and logistics ensure the best possible experience for everyone taking part.
Top quality hiking and camping equipment, and great meals, are included as part of the package. Everything, down to the smallest details are carefully arranged ahead of time so all you really need to do is pull on a pair of boots and set off on a journey guided by people who know the trails backwards and love sharing their knowledge and passion for Mother Nature.
