Review

I cannot say enough about how amazing the hike through Royal National Park was!!! Sara was the most helpful, knowledgeable, personable guide I could have imagined. The whole day was awesome- hiking, swimming in the ocean, seeing a waterfall. But the little thoughtful touches made it even more special- the mid-hike tea, the natural conversation, the perfectly crafted picnic, a nice refreshing cold drink at the end of the day. Sara thought of everything and it made the day so perfect. Would recommend to anyone traveling to Sydney!!!

Review

I did a hike with Freeland Hiking whilst writing a long piece on Australia for the British Sunday Times and it was a truly great day. Sara was incredibly informative and insightful about every aspect of the flora and fauna of the Blue Mountains, a world heritage site of startling beauty. And the picnic lunch she produced from her rucksack was quite something. Freeland do everything with great enthusiasm and competence and we will definitely think about a multi-day hike next time we are back in Australia.

Review

I had the privilege of hiking with Sara on the Blue Mountains Explorer tour. It was a very hot weekend and at the height of the worst bushfire season on record, of which the smoke had caused obscure views of the Blue Mountains. What we lacked in far reaching scenic landscape, we gained in a purely wonderful hiking experience; to hike with professional, honest, dedicated and caring Sara! We hiked the valley floor in Leura and she stopped on the trail multiple times to point out very neat plants and flowers. We were also fortunate to hear and spot many cockatoos, Lyre birds and parrots in the forest. She is very knowledgeable, affable, and gave excellent advice while being very attentive. We had a superb lunch spread, saw the Three Sisters up close and afar, and rode the world’s steepest railway. A very memorable day trip experience for sure. If you love hiking and being among nature, this is a must do, regardless of the weather! The trails were in great condition despite the heat and recent fires and Sara ensures all is safe before heading out. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Review

Fantastic day touring the Blue Mountains! Sarah is a knowledgeable exceptional guide and our lunch was fabulous. Perfect day.

We joined Sara and Marcus on their 4-day Mt Solitary Circuit and had the best time ever. I can highly recommend booking a tour with Freeland Hiking Co since everything was just perfectly organised and we felt completely spoilt and looked after from the moment we were picked up until we were dropped off back at home. We were really impressed with how delicious the food was and how much care and preparation went into it. I also appreciated how much knowledge Sara has about the Blue Mountains, flora and fauna and the Aussie bush in general. I was very impressed with how environmentally conscious Sara is and I feel really inspired to do the same. As mentioned before I highly recommend Freeland Hiking Co. My partner and I are already planning our next hiking adventure with Sara and Marcus since they did such an amazing job.

Review

I did the coastal trek through the Royal National Park and it was such a fantastic day. It was a lovely hike, with stunning views of the coast and a few hidden waterfalls. We were treated to a delicious gourmet lunch while we relaxed at the beach before heading back up the coast. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a day trip from Sydney.

Review

Freeland Hiking is not the usual touristy hiking company. It is far more. Their hikes are a customized personal adventure that takes you off the beaten track while taking into account the interests and aptitudes of the hiking party. Planning starts with a phone call to help establish the possibilities. Then each day of the expedition is planned out meticulously. Weather being a key player in the mix, the overall itinerary manages to hit all the "must do's" while being carefully structured around the whimsical weather gods. The guides at Freeland have an infectious childlike sense-of-prankish-wonder that takes delight in taking short detours deep into the brush to surprise you with gems such as a hidden waterfall in the Royal National Park with a crystal clear swimming pool at the bottom. Or the breaching whales off the sheer sandstone cliffs. Or the gourmet lunch instead of a soggy sandwich. Or the poignant story of the Three Sisters standing watch over the Blue Mountains as we descend and ascend the craggy trail to the Ruined Castle. All in all, it is true soul therapy--a rich treat for any parched up soul that needs a liberal scoop of mama nature to help fill up the potholes left deep within, from our fast-paced modern lives. And at the end of it all, like a well-fed caterpillar that has just settled into its cozy cocoon, you likewise will settle into the warmth of well-earned rich memories that will ripple & reverberate long beyond your encounter with Freeland.

Review

As my first organised hiking experience further to doing my own independent hikes I was not sure how I would find the experience but really enjoyed it. With time to relax and enjoy nature balanced with a long challenging day left me satisfied. Having all meals catered for was such a luxury and the food was excellent. The attention to detail with the meals and snacks was impressive. You never went hungry despite having a manageable pack weight. Sara provided lots of value adding information about the Aboriginal history and nature. Her energy and positive really made the trip. A very well organised trip. I would highly recommend it not matter your level of hiking experience.

Review

Best 2 day trip ever. No better way to see this area than to submerge yourself in it. Sara was amazing. Totally with the price for this trip if a lifetime.

Review

This was a fantastic experience. I did the Ruined Castle Overnighter and it was pure joy. Not only was the landscape beautiful, but the knowledge that Sara and Marcus held for the hike, the land, was inspiring. I would absolutely do all of the tours that Freeland Hiking has. Their experience in hiking and the industry is magnificent as the hike itself was.

This is my first google review and I'm so happy to do it for Sarah and Marcus. I did the overnight Ruined castle trek , which was very well organised. I wish I can give 50 stars for the team. Sarah has rich knowledge about the history and plant species, She shared with us all stories and experiences which made it more memorable for us.I will recommending to all my friends when they want to do a trek. Thank you Sarah and Marcus for making this trip a very memorable one for me.

Review

The Sydney Coastal Trek was the perfect way to spend a beautiful Sunday while visiting Sydney. It was an incredible scenic track and we were lucky enough to spot whales breaching at multiple times throughout the day. The guides were positive and friendly hikers who know their stuff and have really thought of everything! The length of the walk was just right with well planned breaks. We were offered plenty of delicious quality choices for morning tea and lunch that catered to my dairy free dietary requirements. Overall an amazing day full of laughs, good food and beautiful scenery. Can't wait for my next tour with Freeland Hiking Co!

Review

I absolutely loved this two day hike with Sara and Kelly! They supported us every step of the way, made sure we had enough food, and kept us in high spirits. The hike was challenging but so rewarding! 100% recommend if you're looking for a challenging hike (for a beginner) in the Blue Mountains area.

Review

Sara (from Freeland hiking) is such an exceptional guide full of local knowledge and experience. I can't recommend her tours highly enough. Oh! and her meals (and coffee) are the best I've ever had in the bush

Review

I have just come back from the overnight Ruined Castle hike. What an absolutely amazing time I had! Sarah and Kelly were just so super helpful and supportive the entire time I had never carried a large pack but am now so inspired I am buying my own to start hiking trips. The food Sarah made was delicious, the gear provided was top notch, and the ladies I hiked with were just beautiful! I would recommend Freeland Hiking Co to everyone! Thank you Sarah for an awe inspiring weekend!!!!

Review

Wow! What a great weekend! Sara and Kelly were patient and helpful for first time weekend overnight bushwalkers like me, the walk was definitely challenging but was an amazing experience. I learnt so much from Sara and Kelly, gained a lot of confidence with pack walking. They catered for vegan,gluten free and dairy free for the weekend with yummy filling food. It's inspired me to buy a pack and go on overnight walks, to get strong and fit. We had an amazing beautiful bunch of women on our group hike, a super special weekend that will be a part of me now, Thanks Sara and Kelly, would highly recommend this company!

Review

Sara is a wonderful guide with such a passion for the natural surroundings of the bush. During our hike she took immense care that we were well looked after, especial during the most challenging parts of the overnight trip. Highly recommend anything Freeland Hiking Co offers.

I had the most awesome weekend on the Ruined Castle Overnight Hike!! I used to hike a lot in the U.K and after to moving to Australia, without my gear, I wanted to get back into hiking without the outlay of purchasing all the gear. Freeland Hiking is the answer to this!! Not only does Sara have amazing knowledge of the Blue Mountains she provides all the gear, which is of exceptional quality, all the food to fuel you for the hike (her trail mix was top notch) and is extremely motivating. I can't wait to do another hike with Freeland Hiking - it was full of laughs, new friends and awesome views!!

Review

Wow! What an awesome adventure my hike with Freeland Hiking Co. was. I'm not usually one for challenging myself out in the elements, but i wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone, and Sara the guide was really there to help me. I love the initiatives that focused on minimal impacts to the environment, and the views were spectacular. Made some friends for life. Couldn't recommend it enough!

Review

I loved my hike with Freeland Hiking! I am very much a beginner in terms of equipment and experience, and was very nervous about how I would handle the track, but Sara is such a friendly and knowledgeable guide ---- she put me instantly at ease and helped build my confidence every step of the way. Regardless of your skill level, Sara's attitude to guiding will make you feel right at home. Very thankful for the warm support, and also for answering all of my inane questions about the landscape! 100% will be back again and would recommend this to anyone looking for a hiking adventure!
