Wim Hof Method and Piet Blokker - Level 2 Wim Hof Method Instructor

Wim Hof Method combines breathing, cold therapy and commitment, leading to an enhanced natural state of being that offers the following benefits: reduced stress level and better sleep, greater cold tolerance, faster recovery, increased energy and improved sports performance, enhanced creativity, heightened focus & determination, and stronger immune systems and increased willpower.

At the Age of 21 Piet immigrated to Australia and fell in love with Australia's Nature and especially with the pristine, preserved, and beautiful wilderness of Tasmania. ​At the age of 50 he ended up with Lymphoma and Rheumatoid Arthritis due stress and not looking after his body. He realized that his old life was finished and that this was the beginning of a new life. He started learning about the Dutchman Wim Hof. Without further thinking he ordered the 10-week course. This proved to be his life saving decision! His Awaking Process started up and his RA disappeared and he is now clear from cancer. ​Because of the Wim Hof Method he is now able to have fun with his children and grandchildren.

The Bay of Fires Signature Walk (4-days)

If squeaky white-sand beaches and wild coastline appeal to you, the Bay of Fires is a spectacular reason to lace up. We begin at Boulder Point in Mt William National Park where we journey four hours to semi-permanent tents in the dunes. At our forester camp there is no roughing it, take an ocean dip and return for pinots poured and your meal underway.

Day two is all about secluded coves, hearing tales of early inhabitants and making our way to the Bay of Fires Lodge. This is home for the next two nights - where foot spas and library time come standard and signature experiences in the outdoor bath tempt. Day three, grab a kayak paddle and glide down the Ansons River or relax into a ‘lodge day.’

We take it easy on the final day, serving up a brekkie out on deck followed by a one hour walk to our forest lunch location. It’s then onward to Entally Lodge to celebrate our shared four days.


Day 1: Launceston to Mt William National Park

Approximately 4 hours walking

It’s time to get your walking boots sandy. Our beach stroll this morning begins at Boulder Point in Mt William National Park. In clear conditions, the Bass Strait islands of Flinders and Cape Barren are visible to the north.

We’ll nestle into a protected beach along the coastline for lunch, enjoying the company of native birds, rare shells and marine artefacts. From day one your guides will begin unravelling the Bay of Fires tales; its early inhabitants, visiting explorers and how it came to bear its fiery name.

After about four hours walking, we’ll arrive at the Forester Beach Camp, tucked away in secluded dunes. These semi-permanent tents are our home for the night. Relax on the deck with a local wine, take a dip or explore the dune swale location while your guides prepare delicious Tasmanian fare.

Day 2: Exploring the Bay of Fires Coastline

Approximately 7 hours walking

Following a relaxed breakfast at the camp we walk south, absorbing the coastline’s bold colours and solitude. Along the ridgelines of sand dunes, views extend across heathlands and out to the ocean. We’ll visit marsupial lawns, often encountering quiet native animals and the tracks they leave at nightfall.

Our lunch spot today is a beach sheltered behind the dunes near Eddystone Point Lighthouse. We’ll have time to explore the lighthouse and its long-standing story before we trek far-stretching beaches that lead to the celebrated Bay of Fires Lodge.

Afternoon tea will be waiting, along with spa treatments for those who want to indulge. Pre-bookings are best if you’re keen to sink into the outdoor tub or settle in for a luxurious few hours at the spa.

Come evening, venture into the library, cast a line off the beach or have your hosts deliver a cold drop while you dip toes into a foot spa on the back deck. Dinner is a Tasmanian long-table affair, featuring produce from the island matched with fine local beer and wine.

Day 3: Kayaking and enjoying the area

Approximately 6 hours kayaking/walking

Rise early to the native birds accompanying the dawn, waking to the aroma of a hot-cooked breakfast and freshly brewed coffee. If it's a sunny morning, breakfast on the deck can reward you with whale spotting and dolphins surfing the waves.

Later in the morning, kayak down Ansons River and experience the riparian ecology of this winding waterway. Cross the bird-rich waters of Ansons Bay and conclude with a stroll over the dunes of Abbotsbury Peninsula back to the lodge.

After dinner is when the native wildlife wander out – keep an eye out for wombats, wallabies, Forester kangaroos, possums or even a Tasmanian devil. Don’t forget to look up! The night sky from this pristine coastline is an awesome spectacle.

Day 4: Return to Launceston rejuvenated

Approximately 1 hour walking

Following a leisurely breakfast at the lodge, there’s plenty of time for a morning breathwork and swim or final spa treatment before we depart the lodge. Unlike our other walking, today we venture through eucalypt forests and coastal heathland. We’ll enjoy a forest lunch to the sound of native birds, including the endemic green rosella.

Upon our return to Red Feather Inn there will be time to raise a glass to the four wonderful days spent together.
