Australian Walking Holidays has teamed up with Tourism NT to offer $250 gift vouchers to Larapinta walkers and cutting prices on two of its most popular walking adventures in the Top End.
The first 300 Larapinta Trail trekkers to book a walk in July and travel this season will receive a $250 gear voucher from Wild Earth, and anyone booking the Jatbula Trail or Kakadu Walking Adventure will enjoy big savings, too.
So, if you’ve been thinking about escaping the cold and heading to the NT, now’s probably the best time to book.
Australian Walking Holidays, the domestic division of the World Expeditions Travel Group who pioneered the trail in 1995, has an amazing range of walking trips on the stunning Larapinta, including the six-day Classic Larapinta Trek in Comfort, the nine-day Best of the Larapinta Trail and the six, nine and 12-day self-guided Larapinta Trail treks.
The award-winning, six-day Classic Larapinta Trek in Comfort, which is one of the 13 Great Walks of Australia, is guided trekking. Walkers carry only a day pack and enjoy the facilities of comfortable, semi-permanent eco campsites – including hot showers and lounge facilities, and accommodation in off-ground beds in stand-up tents. The nine-day Best of the Larapinta Trail is also guided, with walkers carrying only daypacks, and features wilderness camping under the Milky Way.
“Swim in peaceful waterholes hidden deep within the West MacDonnell Ranges, marvel at the stunning rock formations at Simpson's Gap, Standley Chasm and Serpentine Gorge, climb Mount Sonder for a spectacular sunrise and gain insight into the rich history of Australia's traditional owner's indigenous culture.”
The self-guided treks are best suited to more confident walkers who enjoy self-sufficiency and travelling at their own pace, but who also appreciate the logistics – such as lightweight food, equipment, maps and transfers to and from the trail – being organised for them.
Whichever way you choose to experience the iconic Larapinta Trail, you’ll have the opportunity to swim in peaceful waterholes hidden deep within the West MacDonnell Ranges, marvel at the stunning rock formations at Simpson's Gap, Standley Chasm and Serpentine Gorge, climb Mount Sonder for a spectacular sunrise and gain insight into the rich history of Australia's traditional owner's Indigenous culture.
