Trip notes

Day 1: Arrive in Alice Springs

The adventure of a lifetime begins! Upon arrival in Alice Springs, make your way to our hotel in the heart of Central Australia. In the early afternoon, we meet our local guide for our first team briefing. The rest of the afternoon is free at leisure to explore this ruggedly beautiful town in the heart of Australia. Before dinner, we will walk to the nearby Botanic Garden and hear from some Aranda Elders who will tell us about the history of the area. We enjoy our first team dinner before retiring early for the night in preparation for the big journey ahead.

Meals: None

Day 2: Alice Springs to Wallaby Gap

This morning we say goodbye to the city and hello to the wilderness! The majestic West MacDonnell Ranges are rich in natural wonders and traditional culture; they’re considered to be the best in Australia. Our first walk is a 14km full day, beginning on the outskirts of Alice Springs. Here, we witness some vast and beautiful stretches of Australian land. The view is particularly inspiring at Euro Ridge. On our walk, we allow ourselves to be immersed in the wonder of the region and get a taste of what’s coming in the next four days. We will try and spot some of the local wildlife, before transferring to our remote camping location within the MacDonnell Ranges National Park, our home for the next 5 nights. On arrival, we have the opportunity to enjoy some bush tucker prepared by Kungkas Can Cook, an aboriginal catering company who are passionate about bush foods and are dedicated to utilizing wild harvested produce from around the Central Desert Region and beyond. The true experience begins tonight as we rest in a region synonymous within the dreamtime of Western Arrernte Aboriginal people.

Trekking Distance: 14km

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Serpentine Gorge to Serpentine Chalet Dam

This morning after breakfast, we transfer to the western section of the Larapinta Trail. Today’s trek is more challenging; however, we are continuously rewarded with spectacular views of the high quartzite ridgelines that typify the West MacDonnell Ranges, including Haasts Bluff and Mount Zeil, the highest point in the Northern Territory. Tonight, we return to our campsite.

Trekking Distance: 13-14km

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Ormiston Gorge to Glen Helen Gorge

Today we traverse the low-lying regions surrounding Ormiston Gorge, gradually winding upwards through rolling limestone hills towards the back reaches of the Finke River—one of the world’s oldest river systems. As we trek, we are rewarded with spectacular views of Mount Sonder (‘Rwetyepme’, The Pregnant Lady) in the distance. Tonight, we return to our campsite shadowed by Mount Sonder and watch as the sun sinks behind red sands and the colours of the night desert erupt into million-star accommodation.

Trekking Distance: 10km

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5: Mount Sonder Ascent

This morning we rise early and transfer from our campsite to Redbank Gorge at the base of Mount Sonder (1,380m). The climb to the summit is arduous along a rocky and loose path that occasionally disappears into brush. However, once again, our efforts are rewarded with incredible 360° views of the ranges, plains, valleys and salt lakes below. Here, we will take time to catch our breath and bask in the grandeur of the desert landscape. What an achievement! After descending, we transfer back to our campsite where we enjoy our last evening under the stars of the Milky Way.

Trekking Distance: 16km

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6: Ormiston Pound Walk to Alice Springs

Today we transfer to Ormiston Gorge to trek the Ormiston Pound circuit. Punctuating the West MacDonnell Ranges, this circuit is regarded as one of the best small walks of the Larapinta Trail and offers sensational views of the Chewing’s Range and Mount Giles. Although relatively short, the trek is quite challenging and takes approximately four hours to complete. Setting off, the trail winds around low peaks before descending into the ‘pound’, a flat area enclosed by a ring of mountains. With our trek complete, we enjoy a packed lunch together before transferring back to Alice Springs. Tonight, we meet at a local restaurant for our last group dinner to celebrate our successful adventure.

Trekking Distance: 10km

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7: Depart Alice Springs

This morning, we bid farewell to Alice Springs, the Red Centre and our Larapinta adventure, and jump aboard our airport shuttle to the airport for our flight home. As the runway comes into view, you will be filled with the memories and moments that have made this adventure one you will never forget.

FITNESS AND TRAINING

How do I train for this adventure? 

We will provide you with basic information on how to prepare for your adventure when you register. 

We recommend that you consult your GP and a personal trainer to develop a training plan that will prepare you for the challenge.

It is sensible to start training as early as possible before you go on your trek. Conventional exercise routines which build strength, fitness and stamina, such as aerobics and light weight training can be beneficial, particularly if your fitness level is less than ideal.

ACCOMMODATION

What is the accommodation like? 

Accommodation on this adventure is twin-share in 3-star hotels and at comfortable campsites specifically selected for their locality to walking trails and the sheer beauty, peace and quiet they engender.

In Alice Springs, you’ll be staying at the DoubleTree Hilton. While trekking, you will be sleeping in traditional Aussie swags that include a mattress, sheets, pillow, doona (duvet), blankets and a sleeping bag, all supplied by our ground operator. A limited number of tents (twin-share) are available on a first-come first-serve basis and vary in appearance and standard depending on the campsite. 

Will I be sharing accommodation?

Accommodation on this adventure is based on twin-share. You will be paired with a teammate of the same gender and, whenever possible, age group. Single rooms are available at an additional cost and subject to availability.

I’m travelling with a friend, can we stay together?

If you’re travelling with a friend, please make note of this and we will pair you together.

WHAT TO EXPECT

What is the food like? 

Food will vary from team to team, but below are some examples.

Breakfast: A choice of cereals/muesli, toast cooked on the campfire, porridge, fruit, coffee and tea.

Lunch: Lunch is typically served en route during trekking days. Your local guide will pack lunch food in their pack, and then lay it out buffet style when you stop for a lunch break. Featuring everything from gourmet meats and beans to delicious condiments and cheese, you’ll be able to make hearty wraps and more.

Dinner: By night, your tastebuds will be treated to traditional Australian outback campfire cookery, with a diversity of dishes ranging from steak and salad, jacket potatoes and barbecues to risotto, pasta and chicken stir-fry.

During the Larapinta season (winter) mornings, evenings and nights are cold and daytimes are mild to warm. While blue, clear skies shine throughout most of the year with low rainfall, we recommend checking local weather forecasts closer to departure for more up-to-date information. 

Is there mobile phone reception? 

You will not be able to use your phone while out in the bush – but don’t worry; it’s all part of the experience! If you’re lucky, you might get some coverage at high points on the trail, but this is quite unlikely.
