We did the trail with Trek Larapinta and can not say one bad thing about it - the walk, our guides, the whole Trek Larapinta organisation and set up. To anyone looking for a company to go with, these guys are the one. Kate, Kia and Benni were a brilliant mix of experience, knowledge and fun and of course the... More

Just returned from this six day hike, extremely well run, the guides Alice, Ryan and Michael were great keeping us well informed about flora, fauna and knowledgeable information about all of the sites visited. The food provided was delicious and campsites all well set out. Special mention to Ryan for his care and patience regarding blisters, as without this I... More

It's less than a week since I've come home from my guided walk with Trek Larapinta on the Larapinta Trail which heads westwards out of Alice Springs and culminates in a climb to the top of Mount Sonder to watch the sunrise. The trip exceeded my expectations, mainly because of the way our guides, Dan and Stella, helped our little... More

This is a very challenging walk done "end to end". I wasn't up to that, but still managed to complete a couple of sections. I also drove to different parts and did day walks

Warwick and Stella were excellent guides from Trek Larapinta for our 9 day trek. The trail really shows off the beauty and uniqueness of the West McDonnell Ranges. The small group format was great and the camping and meals etc were wonderful. The Larapinta is at times challenging and people considering going should talk with the tour operators if they... More

Walked 9 days with Trek Larapinta early July.The guides Stella and Anne were exceptional hosts. Their knowledge of the area, history, wildlife, geology and botany was inspiring. Each day's walk was a highlight of each section. The terrain was different to anything I had walked but you very quickly got used to it. So many stops to take photos of... More

We have just completed the Super 6 Day Larapinta Trek with Trek Larapinta and it exceeded all expectations! We expected beautiful scenery, but weren't quite prepared for the scale and just how breathtaking the West Macdonnell Ranges actually are! The trek turned out to be about much more than the scenery. Our guides, Kate and Rob, are experts and an... More

We have just done a six day walk with Trek Larapinta. Wonderful, exceeded expectations. Our guides, Kate(8848), Kia(firecracker) and Benni(only 20!) were lovely - patient, professional, enthusiastic. And excellent cooks as well. Kate is an expert leader and blister fixer, Kia gave lots of support to two of us who were heat-affected, and Benni is laid-back and fun. (And thanks... More

Fantastic experience with Trek Larapinta at the end of July. 6 day trek in the West Macdonnell Ranges, amazing scenary and fabulous guides (Warrick, Declan and Bennie). Glamping for sure with great food, service and support. Can't recommend the tour company highly enough. Would definately trek with Trek Tours again

Well months of preparation and training went into this hike but unfortunately I only made it through Section 1. This trail is pretty rugged I had a heavy pack of over 20kgs plus water and I made the mistake of wearing a new pair of socks that had not been washed yet, apparently a very bad decision.
