We arranged our transport from Alice Springs to the Larapinta trail and return on our recent self guided walk with Trek Larapinta. Richard was on time at both pick ups and provided a wealth of great information and tips even though we weren't booked on any of their guided walks. His passion for the Larapinta trail and the importance protecting... More

We had a great experience with Trek Larapinta for drop off and pick up on the Larapinta Trail. The company was recommended by a group of walkers who ran into difficulty on Section 5 last year - Trek Larapinta had been able to be flexible with picking up the injured person (they had another tour in the area) so that...

The Larapinta Trail is a must-do if you are a fan of bush walking and the Aussie outback. Completing the 6 day assisted trip "Classic Larapinta" with World Expeditions was a great way to do it - the glory of walking many of the highlights of the full trail, with the benefit/ luxury of comfy swags and tents, deluxe meals,...

Re Trek Larapinta... Make sure your are sure of your plans with this lot and have no unforeseens. Used them for transfers and drop off for 15 days on Larapinta. As Richard helpfully said, "you've done your dough" when rang to cancel return from Ormiston. As he offered that they they were very busy on the way out to our... More

What a fabulous time we had with trek Larapinta. Fantastic guides. Unbelievable scenery. Well planned days. We ate well and had everything we could possible need in an environmentally aware setting. A must do for anyone who enjoys a walk. And Trek Larapinta were excellent from booking staff to our great guides.

Ever since I heard of the Larapinta Trail I knew that I just had to do it some time. Booked a 6-days tour with the eco-friendly company TrekLarapinta. And it was just really great: well organised, professional and friendly. The day-tours gave stunning views, great walking-experiences and the food was excellent. We all soon felt like a walking-family and even... More

We are just back from the Redbank Gorge to Ormiston Gorge section of the Larapinta. The Larapinta trail is never-to-be-forgotten, must-do trek. We are completing it in stages and this was the second chunk we completed - now we have to fill in the gap between the two chunks. I see reading below that Trek Larapinta have had excellent reviews..... More

Hello Andrew K, thank you for awarding our transfer service 5 stars, though it seems you had some issues with how it was conducted. As I (Richard) was the person who was responsible it is appropriate that I respond. Firstly the original time you organised to be collected in Alice Springs was pushed out by 20 minutes or so because... More

Can not more highly recommend the team at Trek Larapinta for their awesome work in putting together an experience that is both outstandingly memorable and thoroughly enjoyable. The daily trekking was wonderfully (and knowledgeably) guided (by Ann), while our spectacular food (prepared by Andrew) was positively gourmet! All equipment & provisions are of fantastic quality, ensuring that on those desert... More

rough going underfoot compared to other Australian walks, but great desert/outback scenery. Good camping at Ellery creek. Walk up Mt Sonder was a tough 7hrs but worth it. Take plenty of warm gear - freezing when the sun goes down and before it comes up.
