I decided to walk with Trek Larapinta based on the great reviews from friends and Trip Advisor. I had considered walking it self supported as I have walked in the Arthurs, Tyndalls, Cradle MT/Lake st Clair areas etc in Tas, but I wasn't sure how I would go with the heat, terrain and carrying the additional kilos for water. Chose... More

I've seen a lot of inland Australia and this ranks as one of the best 6 days I've had in the desert. Terrific company from check in to check out - back of house and guides all of the highest standard. Adaptable to our group where soreness prevailed and accomodating the entire time.

An unique Aussie experience. We took 13 days to complete the 240 km walk over rough, rocky terrain, carrying all our equipment. Water is available every 15 - 20 kms and we arranged a coupe of food drops, otherwise complete independence. Tough challenge for 70 year old me - but glad I did it.

The Trek Larapinta Super Six was an absolutely incredible experience. Super Six are the six days with the most spectacular views (rather than the full 13-day walk) and we absolutely loved it. Be aware, it's not a stroll in the park so you need to be fit and prepared for long days that can be challenging and tiring. But oh... More

We used Trek Larapinta for transfers and food drops for a privately organised hike on the Larapinta Trail. The service was excellent. During the planning stage Nicole offered a lot of useful advice and was able to provide some good tips to assist us. We flew to Alice and after collecting some supplies were ready to leave a couple of... More

I had never been overly keen to hike in the West Macs being a keen NZ tramper with a bias towards the alpine experience. But we happened to spend three days here at the end of a Simpson Desert crossing. Boy had we underestimated the beauty of this region. The ranges truly are spectacular and the walks like no others.... More

If you are limited for time, it's a great days outing. We spent around 10 hours driving between gorges and parking and walking to view platforms. You get a good feel for the trail and it makes you want to come back and spend more time.
