Walking the Larapinta Trail is a truly unique experience, offering a look into the red heart of Australia and the Western Arrernte Aboriginal culture. Explore hidden valleys and gorges that time forgot and camp out under the stars of the Milky Way and Southern Cross as they twinkle you to sleep. Become entranced by traditional folklore stories of “Dreaming” and “Creation,” and discover what was once lost but now found.

This is a genuine rustic camping experience with a few luxuries thrown in. Sleep under the stars in a traditional "Aussie Swag" bedroll, complete with mattress, sheets, pillows and a sleeping bag. Water is scarce so there are limited shower facilities, but there are plenty of opportunities to take a dip in the local waterholes. And to top it all off there is nothing like a roaring fire and good food to end the day!

A good level of fitness is required as you will be traversing up to 11.18 miles (18 kilometers) a day on graded trails, with plenty of time to relax and enjoy the Australian outback. You will only need to carry a day pack, as there will be a support vehicle to carry all the supplies.
