This trip is a fully supported walk: your main pack will be transported to the next campsite, where youll find your swag (or tent) and a delicious meal awaiting you at the end of each day.Youll experience the solitude and peace of the great Australian desert while learning about this unique environment from expert local guides.
We walk with local Anangu people at Uluru and learn about this ancient spiritual centre from their perspective. Weve got more walking in store but of a gentler nature as we trek through the Valley of the Winds at Kata Tjuta and the towering Kings Canyon.
Its a superb way to end your trip and really absorb one of the most extraordinary desert environments on Earth. We also have time to look around the galleries (as well as pubs) that make Alice Springs so unique.
What do people say?
Everyone should experience the desert! What an amazing place full of mystery, history and wonder. A huge expanse of S P A C E with starry skies, sunrise and sunsets one you can only dream about. The scenery on the trail was amazing with beautiful vistas and wildlife in every direction
Georgina Westgarth, May 2008
The Larapinta Trail in a word was ... amazing. You have a chance to experience a part of Australia that had remained relatively untouched over thousands of years. Every where you look as you make your way along the track there is an-other picture perfect view or dreaming story to be told. ll en-courage any one wholl listen to go. Id do it again in a heart beat, my sincerest thanks to Raw Travel it was ... amazing!.
