Victoria’s high country is spectacular, challenging and captivating
In recent years, our guides explored the Victorian High Country to investigate the logistics for running a trip that included completing the 7 Peaks Challenge. It can be quite a challenge completing the 7 Peaks over a short time period. You need outside assistance. You need transport, comfortable places to stay and most importantly ride support and nutrition. Our 7 day trip completes 6 of the official 7 Peaks, you may wish to extend your holiday either at the beginning or end and include Mt Baw Baw, it is just a short distance from Melbourne.
For all of our trips, we look after every detail and support you on and off the bike. You only need to worry about riding your bike. We’ll help you have fun! Uniquely to our 7 Peaks trip, we have planned experiences along the way to showcase the incredible produce and friendly country hospitality of North East Victoria.
We’ve partnered with the great crew at Ride High Country. Together we’ve identified touristic highlights and ensure that you will have a memorable local experience. Our focus however is completing climbs of the Official 7 Peaks Challenge.
Roll through the valleys, climb the twisty alpine roads, enjoy friendly country hospitality
Starting from Melbourne, our trip takes us to the Marysville, a place rebuilt after the devastating Black Saturday fires. We’ll tackle Lake Mountain before we travel north and ride one of the most popular climbs Mount Buller. We take a pause for a moment and enjoy the local produce through the King Valley soaking in the friendly country hospitality. Our riding kicks up a gear as we tackle a double climb day over Falls Creek and returning via Dinner Plain. An epic day on the bike. If you have concerns about making the double, we have a shorter option for you.
Our final 3 nights are in Bright the heart of the Alpine country and giving us easy access to Mt Hotham and Mt Buffalo. We stay at deluxe accommodation all the way, air conditioned comfort, country style and luxurious beds for a great nights sleep.

We’ll admire our achievements and celebrate our friendships at a final lunch highlighting the local produce before returning you to Melbourne.
