Sights and Tastes of Gourmet Hiking in the Alps

Hiking on Mount Buffalo.

Here’s some guilt free indulging for you – exercise, take in some spectacular views and treat your taste buds!

A hiking company has launched its 2020 programme of gastronomic guided tours around Mount Buffalo, Dinner Plain and Beechworth.

The small group tours offered by Hedonistic Hiking feature spectacular hikes, superb lunchtime picnics featuring local produce, and gourmet dinners with North East wines.

Hedonistic Hiking was established by tour leaders Jackie and Mick Parsons who live and work half the year running guided tours in Italy, and the other half in North East Victoria.

New tours in 2020 incorporates a hike and a three-course sunset dinner on Mount Buffalo, and a separate weekend hiking tour at Dinner Plain.

Existing hikes off the beaten track in the Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park and through the area’s prestigious Nebbiolo vineyards are also on offer, complete with dinner at some of Beechworth’s most popular restaurants.
