Our style of walking is to take plenty of time to enjoy the birds, plants, animals, scenery and the fact of just being in the bush. We don’t race from A to B. That way, you can enjoy both the challenge and the beauty of the trail and surrounds – take a few photographs, sit down occasionally for a cup of tea, ask questions about what you’ve seen, or just be.
Anyone for coffee? The first meal of the day sets us up for a great walk. We love making a beautiful cup of coffee first thing in the morning, which we gently plunge for your pleasure. Tea drinkers find that our dozen or so tea varieties offer a cup to delight.
A great breakfast sets us up for a big day on the trail. You can look forward to a range of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast, porridge and juice.
Our guides are an eclectic bunch of beautiful people who love to share their wilderness experience and knowledge, creating inspiring trekking journeys for our treasured guests.
While you’ve been out hiking the trail, your camp host has been busy preparing another scrumptious three course meal (sorry, no one on our treks loses weight :). Think gourmet cheeses, exotic dips, roasts, pastas, risottos, stir frys, grills, camp oven specials and fresh tasty salads. A surprising sweet finish is always a lovely way to end the day.
Vegetarian and other dietary requirements are a speciality of ours.
We believe the combination of our delicious food served in amazing places, make our treks a truly tasty experience.
“Our 3 day expedition with Trek Larapinta was exceptional. An amazing experience and privilege to walk through this country and learn so much through our guide. Fantastic fresh food and a wonderful camp that has given me a new benchmark for camping ease, comfort and minimalism. Trek Larapinta were very accommodating of our small group and we all felt very spoilt!”
“We chose the 9 day trek with Trek Larapinta and, as experienced trekkers, were delighted that we did, as they made it a memorable 9 days, the best organised trek we have been on. Brilliant, hardworking guides couldn’t have looked after us better, on the road, in camp and on the trail. The food would have put many noted restaurants to shame and both of them produced memorable meals. We were always well briefed about where we were going and what the conditions were, and on the trail they provided lots of information about the geology, plants etc. Where does TL find such multi skilled people?”
“From the moment our guides picked us up at our hotel to the time they dropped us off 6 days later their professionalism, experience, knowledge, personalities and exceptional cooking abilities made this trip 10/10.
Having guides like this certainly puts the whole group at ease and our group in particular were great.
The food offered up each day was nearly the highlight of the trek. What came out each night around the campfire straight out of the camp oven would have many a chef in awe.”
“Now back in civilsation after an awesome 6 day experience with Trek Larapinta. Being an older trekker, I was once again overwhelmed by the care and support of the guides and the willingness for me to do as much as I could/wanted to do.Having done the Jatbula last year, I was keen to try the Larapinta. Once again the equipment, food and nurturing support of the guides was first class. The permanent camp site on the Ormiston River bed was stunning visually and efficient practically. Well done, Trek Larapinta!
