Larapinta End to End
Our complete traverse of the Larapinta is an inspiring trek that will delight the wilderness lover and challenge the seasoned walker. Walking the entire 223km length of the Larapinta Trail is a challenging objective, but one that comes with an equal sense of reward as you complete this outstanding trek in Australia's Red Centre. The Larapinta Trail offers one of the greatest desert treks on earth and is one of Australia's most famous walking experiences. Following the spine of the West MacDonnell range, this trek will allow you to walk the entire length of the Larapinta Trail utilising the knowledge and experience of the pioneers of this now iconic trail. There will be some challenging stages as you pass over remote ridges and canyons, walking up to 30kms on some days. As with all our treks on the Larapinta Trail, you will only carry your day pack. The group camping gear is transported to the next campsite by our professional support crew, freeing trekkers to enjoy the diverse desert scenery, revel in the camaraderie of like-minded travellers and focus on achieving your goal.

The most memorable part was the scenery, the landscapes, and top it all off was the magical sunrise from Mt Sonder, the guides because they were very experienced, they knew what they were talking about, and the great cooks too - always very polite and helpful. The people I went with also made the trip memorable and unforgettable.
I have never taken on a trekking/walking holiday quite like Larapinta end to end, it was a very physically challenging holiday and you must prepare well fitness wise before the trip. Expect the unexpected and be extremely open-minded, otherwise undertake take on the 6 day Classic Larapinta Trek/Walking Holiday
