Visit some of the Northern Territory's most iconic destinations on foot in safety with the knowledgeable guides of Australian Walking Holidays .
The Larapinta Trail is one of Australia's great walks. Our experience on the trail began in 1995 and since then we have pioneered the way on this classic desert walk, now becoming the first ever to provide a self guided walking experience along the trail. You'll be provided with essential equipment, from maps to cooking utensils and food, as well as an EPIRB and invaluable advice from our experienced guides, prior to your departure. This walk provides you with a great opportunity to complete this outstanding trek with the knowledge that the best gear, food drops and local knowledge from the pioneers of this iconic trek, will support you on your independent journey through Australia's Red Centre. A self guided walk along the Larapinta is suited to experienced walkers comfortable with their sense of direction and map reading, ability to carry a full pack and used to being independent in the outdoors. The landscapes along the Larapinta are quite diverse and walking at your own pace is one of the best ways to truly appreciate the high ridgeline traverse, narrow canyons, stunning gorges and idyllic waterholes.
