Established in 1998, Trek Larapinta is a boutique award-winning trekking operator, offering world class guided walking holidays on the Larapinta Trail. As a small local operator, we focus on quality and sustainability, maintain strong local knowledge of the landscape and build deep connections within our community.

We guide walking tours for small groups of between 8 and 10 trekkers - the smallest group size on the Larapinta Trail.

Trek Larapinta also offers unique volunteer programs on the Larapinta Trail, supports Indigenous enterprises and practices environmentally responsible travel. Thanks to a joint partnership with Parks and Wildlife NT, the Central Land Council and Traditional Owners, we are able to offer exclusive semi-permanent private eco-camps.

Trek Larapinta offers visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Central Australian landscape with fully supported and organised walking holidays. Through hiking, you can take your time to appreciate the natural and cultural wonders of the amazing Tjoritja / West MacDonnell National Park. The holiday experience with Trek Larapinta includes sleeping out under one of the best night skies in the world, traditional Australian outback campfire cookery and superb fresh meals. Trek Larapinta guests enjoy viewing endemic wildlife, stunning wildflowers along with unique and spectacular geological formations of this incredible National Park. Other highlights of a Trek Larapinta holiday include swimming in the Finke River - one of the oldest rivers on earth and climbing Mount Sonder, one of the Northern Territories’ highest desert peaks.

Trek Larapinta guides are the most experienced, passionate and knowledgeable on the trail, and offer informative interpretation of the natural and cultural environment.
