Our Mount Hotham Tours are the highest altitude tours available in Australia, situated at 1700m. Mount Hotham is surrounded by the pristine wilderness of the Alpine National Park. The location has perfect facilities for families, first-time snow goers and even the biggest snow enthusiast. This is the perfect place to gain the true Aussie snow experience!
Our tours run from June through to September.
We are closed Mondays and Tuesdays at Mount Hotham, unless otherwise specified.
Please note: There is a combined weight limit of 160kg for all sled tours.
Please note: Our tours are run as informative, enjoyable and scenic activities. Although our dogs are amazing at what they do, we train them as freight-pulling dogs - not racing dogs. This means they’re extremely fit and extremely strong, but not extremely fast. We DO NOT offer adrenaline rides.
