Our Walking Tours on Larapinta Trail have been meticulously designed to encompasses the best highlights of the trail and create a fantastic journey of experiences.
Our tours are aimed at a mature market of travellers (40 years +) and we offer options on the more challenging days to suit a variety of fitness levels. We also have carefully planned your journey with your comfort in mind. For example we have planned your tour so that the most challenging day, the walk to Mt Sonder is at the start of the tour when you are your most energetic and then we gradually make each day easier as the tour progresses. We believe Mt Sonder should also be done with an early rise to enjoy a glorious sunrise. This is for most the highlight of the Larapinta Trekking Experience!
