Winner of the 2016 Ecotourism award in the Brolga Norther Territory Tourism Awards. Since 1995, when we offered the first commercial trek in this outstanding walking destination, we have led the way on the Larapinta trail – and our award-winning semi-permanent campsites continue to set the standard. On this fully supported trek, you’ll walk with just a day pack on well graded trails between eight and sixteen kilometres each day. At the end of each day, you’ll appreciate the facilities of our architect-designed exclusive permanent campsites, including hot showers, comfortable lounges and heated dining shelter, as our guides prepare what are best described as delicious meals “with a gourmet twist”.Our three stylish campsites are located at intervals that minimize your transfer time, so there’s more time to take in the highlights of the trail. We have selected walks for their spectacular scenery and their variety. On the high ridge lines of the West MacDonnell Ranges, you’ll gain a rare perspective of the vast flood plains – truly big sky country – that form this ancient land. You’ll be dwarfed by the immensity of Ormiston and Serpentine gorges and soothed by their idyllic waterholes. You’ll be amazed by dramatic colour changes in the rock formations at Simpsons Gap and Standley Chasm and the dawn ascent of Mt Sonder (1,380m) provides the perfect vantage point to take in the length of the entire West MacDonnell Ranges.
