An opportunity for you to join and the ultimate hiking adventure that you NEED to tick off your bucket list.
There is a good reason that the Larapinta Trail is amongst the most legendary walks in the world. Spend five days on some of the most epic walks in Australia and stay in accommodation EVERY NIGHT, enabling you to cover almost 100km of the best parts of the trail.
We will be transferring you on and off the track and stay in twin share accommodation in Alice Springs and Glen Helen Homestead, where you will get a cooked meal, a hot shower and comfortable bed. With our itinerary, you will achieve 5 full days of walking – more than any other tour. We have chosen the best 100km of the trail and will make sure you get to experience all the Larapinta has to offer. We are the best value tour that includes all food and twin share accommodation for maximum time on the trail.

Grading – hard
Just a note of caution some of the trails contain difficult sections, however our experienced guides will always be there to assist you. Participants should expect around 6-8 hours walking each day and the treks will vary in conditions. There will be soft sand, uneven rocks, steps, and possibly some small sections of scrambling. The distances will vary between 9km up to 22km and agility will be important and as with any of our tours the fitter you are for the activity, the more your attention moves from looking at your feet to experiencing your surrounds. Train for uneven terrain by finding rough tracks, even just your local park or sports field, and go for a lovely long walk in your both your best and back-up footwear.
Provided we are advised in advance of your departure we are able to cater for a full range of gluten free, lactose free, vegan, vegetarian diets and can assist with medically recommended diets (allergies and intolerances). Please ensure you discuss your requirements with us well in advance.
