The food was sensational and they catered to my special dietary requirements so well. The whole experience was excellent. The guides really made this trip for me! Highly recommend this trip.

Larapinta Trail is the highlight of central Australia, taking you through valleys and gorges, along ridges and waterways to see the most spectacular and ancient heart of Australia.

This is one of the best and hardest walks I have ever done. I've walked across Tasmania, the Australian Alps Walking Track, the Bibb Track and many others, but the Larapinta Trail is its own epic brand and experience. The landscape, topography, climate and trail conditions are nothing like I have experienced elsewhere. It was simply amazing. Absolutely beautiful. I... More
