  • Walking along Australia's most iconic desert trek, along the ridgelines of the West MacDonnell Ranges and staying at comfortable eco campsites.

    The Classic Larapinta Trek is one of the seven Great Walks of Australia and is now noted as one of the top 10 walks in the world on many trekking writers walking lists. Walking the high ridgelines of the West MacDonnell Ranges we gain a rare perspective of vast flood plains, the razorback rocky outcrops and sheer scale of this ancient land. We follow an itinerary that will appeal to the active walker prepared to cover between six to sixteen kilometres each day, with plenty of side options to the best spots in the area. You will need to carry only a day pack, as we will be camping in stylish, exclusive and comfortable semi-permanent camp-sites (Ti Tree and Charlie's), where exceptional facilities are setup and waiting for us. These exclusive wilderness campsites add to the enjoyment of the Larapinta Trail, with heated lounge and dining facilities, hot showers, eco-toilet facilities, solar lighting, USB 12V Camera Battery charging and a host of sustainable and stylish facilities. When combined with exceptional food and and fantastic guides, trekkers can just relax and enjoy the outback hospitality.

    A support vehicle will transfer us between trailheads, allowing us to select walks that are the perfect balance of spectacular scenery and distance covered. The diversity of trail stages is impressive, at times the trail descends from the ridgeline into narrow canyons where sheltered pockets of delicate fern and twisted gum trees grow from the dry rivers of sand. On other stages we walk to the impressive Simpsons Gap and Standley Chasm or climb Mt Sonder (1380m) a perfect vantage point from where we can trace the entire West MacDonnell Range.
