Larapinta Trek

We had a wonderful time on our recent 8 day Larapinta Trek. The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the assistance of our guides Adrian and Craig. Their flexibility, steady temperaments, knowledge, friendship, experience, sense of humor and ability in the kitchen took all the difficulties out of our experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything that should have happened happened, and happened when it should have. They made the whole experience for us a simple walk in the bush. We could not reccommend them more highly.

Larapinta Experience in Comfort

Create memories to last a lifetime as you cross the Red Centre's wild and untamed landscapes on this highlights packed short walking tour . Over three days you will enjoy the perfect introduction to walking in the outback with a selection of day walks along our favourite sections of the Larapinta Trail. Each evening you will stay at Nick's Camp, one of our comfortable and stylish semi permanent wilderness campsites which come complete with hot showers, dining tent & raised individual beds - exclusive to our travellers. Winding along high exposed ridge lines and deep, sheltered gorges, this gentle introduction to desert walking will traverse one of the world's most evocative and ancient landscapes. While you walk, your support vehicle transfers your luggage and camping gear to the next campsite leaving you only to carry a day pack while you hike. If you are short on time or new to walking holidays, there is no better short experience on the Larapinta Trail.

traveller reviews

The experience of walking the Larapinta Trail was excellent - I enjoyed all aspects of the trip and was very impressed by our guides who kept us safe, informed us, challenged us, fed us and managed
logistics all with wonderful care and good humour. The landscape was amazing and I really enjoyed learning about the geology, vegetation and birdlife as well as the cultural significance of the places we visited. It was a great trip and I would be very happy to do something like this again with World Expeditions.
