Whether your idea of the perfect outdoor activity is a spot of fly fishing, or perhaps flying down a trail on a mountain bike, the Lantern Thredbo Apartments has the perfect holiday for the outdoor enthusiast this autumn.
“Autumn is an ideal time to visit Thredbo and enjoy the great outdoors — whether it’s on the peaks or in the valleys — as the heat of summer dies down and before the snow falls start again,” said Ian Foster, General Manager of The Lantern Thredbo Apartments which operates Lantern Apartments, Lhotsky Apartments and Elevation Apartments, amongst others.
For those who prefer the peaks, the Interschool Mountain Bike Championships — from Friday 15 March to Sunday 17 March 2013 — is a highlight on the Thredbo calendar. Watch some of the nation’s best up-and-coming mountain bikers strut their stuff, and take a ride yourself on some of the new trails designed to suit all levels of rider.
If the valley is more your style you’ll love the fishing on offer, from the high country meadows around Dead Horse Gap to the exciting gorge fishing just below Thredbo Village. The Thredbo River is a ‘Blue Ribbon’ stream for trout fishing, which means that only lure and fly fishing are permitted, and there’s also some great freshwater fishing in the Snowy Mountains lakes.
The Lantern Thredbo Apartments in the NSW Snowy Mountains offer a selection of properties to suit every taste and budget, from one bedroom apartments with spectacular views right through to four bedroom chalets with every modern luxury.
The Mountain Bike Weekend package includes three nights’ accommodation for the price of two, two days bike and equipment hire, an introductory safety tour and two days chairlift access. The package starts at just $449 per person (less if you bring your own bike).
The Fly Fishing Thredbo package includes three nights’ accommodation for the price of two, one Free FFFF Pack (Five Favourite Fredbo Flies) and a free late check out. From only $395 twin share this is a great way to get to the heart of high country fishing.
