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 and best walks in Australia and stay in accommodation EVERY NIGHT, enabling you to cover 93km of the best parts of the trail.
We will be transferring you on and off the track and staying in twin share accommodation in Alice Springs and Glen Helen Homestead, where you will get a cooked meal, a hot shower and a comfortable bed. With our itinerary, you will be able to do more of walking with 5 days of walking – more than any other tour. You will walk almost 100km along the trail, and we make sure you cover the best of what the Larapinta has to offer.

Grading – moderate
Just a note of caution some of the trails contain difficult sections however not to worry though we can find alternate and more accommodating routes should you need. As always our experienced team members will be there to assist you. Participants should expect around 6-8 hours walking each day. The treks will vary in conditions. There will be soft sand, uneven rocks, and some scrambling. The distances are not great and agility will be important and as with any of our tours the fitter you are for the activity, the more the attention moves from looking at your feet to experiencing your surrounds. Train for uneven terrain by finding a rough narrow bush track, even just your local park or sports field, and go for a lovely long walk in your trekking boots.
Provided we are advised in advance of your departure we are able to cater for vegetarian diets and can assist with medically recommended diets (allergies and intolerances). Please ensure you discuss your requirements with us well in advance
