About us

History

Tasmania MTB Tours was born back in 2018 out of a passion and a dream by a local rider, who wanted to offer the world’s best mountain bike adventures right here in Tassie. We now have a passionate small team that aim to give you the best experience.

With our sister business on the mainland, Epic MTB Tours we are now one of the world’s leaders in adventure tourism specialising in mountain biking tours.

Mission

To offer the world’s best mountain bike adventures at the best mountain bike destinations right across Australia. To learn, understand, connect, engage, and create meaningful memories for our guests.

Respect the socio-cultural authenticity of host communities, conserve their built and living cultural heritage and traditional values, and contribute to inter-cultural understanding and tolerance.

Vision

Provide fairly distributed benefits to all stakeholders, including stable employment and income-earning opportunities and social services to local communities, and contribute to poverty alleviation.

Make optimal use of environmental resources that constitute a key element in tourism development, maintaining essential ecological processes and helping to conserve natural heritage and biodiversity.

“Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.” ― Gary Snyder

We Care

What is sustainable tourism ?

The adventure tourism market and in particular the mountain biking sector has seen huge continued growth and we have helped contribute to this. We accept our responsibility to look after the environment, respect local culture and the peoples lands we use.

Tourism can bring many economic and social benefits, particularly in small rural towns and remote communities both in Australia and in overseas developing regions like Asia, Africa and South America. However, tourism can only be sustainable if it is carefully managed so that potential negative effects on the host community and the environment are not permitted to outweigh the financial benefits.

What are we doing to help make a real difference ?

Our philosophy is not to stand still and do nothing. We care about poverty, the environment, wildlife and making everyone feel inclusive. We have a zero impact policy, we only leave behind footprints and take photographs. We ask all guests to also respect this zero impact policy.

When you book any multi-day tour with Tasmania MTB Tours or Epic MTB Tours we will donate $5 to the your preferred charity from our selection of 3 reputable charities making a real difference.

The donation will help protect the environment, help injured wildlife and help alleviate poverty in the world. For more info see our “We Care Campaign” page.
