Classic Larapinta Wild Week - Sept 2018
About the adventure
On this fully supported trek you walk with just a day pack to explore the best sections of this iconic desert trail: from the high ridge lines of the West MacDonnell Ranges you’ll see the vast flood plains that form this ancient land. You’ll be dwarfed by the immensity of Ormiston and Serpentine Gorge and soothed by their idyllic waterholes. You’ll be amazed by dramatic colour changes in the rock formations at Simpsons Gap and Standley Chasm... and to top it all of you’ll climb to the lofty peak of Mt Sonder to watch the sunrise (1,380m). At the end of each day we relax in comfort at our architect‑designed camps – including hot showers, comfortable lounges and heated dining shelter – as our guides prepare gourmet 3‑course dinners around the campfire. Our exclusive camps combined with passionate guides, spectacular food, and an unsurpassed itinerary make this tour the ultimate Larapinta experience.
