FAQ'S

Don't worry about gear, food or details - that's our job. Just bring your enthusiasm and a willingness to have a go

Our goal is to ensure you have an awesome trip, and make memories that will last. We add a range of features into all our trips so you can experience it all.

Our tours are opportunities! They are designed for you to relax, have fun, explore and immerse yourself in multi-day experiences that forge new friendships. We walk, kayak, cave, trek, abseil, whilst exploring the majestic sights. Our trips are fully catered with nutritious healthy meals, fully chauffeured, and expertly guided. We plan so you can enjoy!

What do have to bring on a walk?

We have a suggested pack list here to give you an idea of what to bring. Remember that if you are going to Tasmania with us, your clothing will be different than if you are coming to Alice Springs to walk the Larapinta Trail. Please also bear in mind that we are often transporting all your gear from one location to the next so we suggest that you don’t bring massive suitcases!

What is included?

All our trips include our awesome TSA guides, accommodation, all your meals, beverages, access, permits, and all extras such as gear, activites, climbs, rafting, caving or any of the other exciting activities that appears on our tours. There is never any more to pay, unless you want to buy your own things like a coffee, souvenirs etc.

Are flights included?

No, due to the nature of travel, your location, rewards, preferences etc, we do not include flights.

How fit do I need to be?

As with all of our events, our trips vary in length and difficulty. We suggest you look at the grading provided and have a browse through the itinerary distances. If you can walk 20km day after day then you’ll be fine for the Larapinta Trek, or you may be more suited to wandering around the Bay of Fires and more leisurely beach walking. Remember that you will have weeks to months to build up your fitness before the trip – which we can help with! If still in doubt, give us a call

Will I have to share my accommodation?

Yes, you’ll need to share. However, aren’t you coming along to meet new people? expand your social circles? push your boundaries a little? All our participants are just like you and may feel just the same. We’ll always do our best to provide you with what you need depending on our location, accommodation venue and number of participants.

What sort of accommodation do you have?

Since we run a range of trips and tours across Australia and overseas, our accommodation varies considerably. It might be a bunk room in the desert through to a five star resort for a night.
We always try to provide the best and most suitable accommodation depending on location and availability and also about shared bathrooms…’rest assured we aim to provide the best options for the specific tours’).
