HELI-SUPPORT FOR HIKING AND TREKKING

Heli-support is an essential component for many remote area cross-country trekking across Central Australia. Access to remote areas is difficult or inaccessible by road and in almost all instances, cross country treks will be dependent on aerial-based

food and water resupply caches. It's not cheap either.

HELI-TRANSFERS

If you want to get started on the Larapinta Trail in style, a heli-transfer option is the way to go. A heli-transfer is possible to/from all sections of the Larapinta Trail. Prices vary and there may be restrictions on passenger numbers, landing sites and gear weight/sizes.

FOOD DROPS & RESUPPLY

Heli-based food, equipment and water drops and resupply options are available. In most instances heli-resupplies are used for time sensitive emergencies for group or corporate based activities on the Larapinta Trail.

GEAR RECOVERY

Gear and equipment can be recovered by helicopter if the option of physical retrieval is not possible due to medical issues, time sensitivity or weight factors.

HELI-TRANSFERS

A heli-transfer for off track remote area trekking is the primary choice for many trekkers. Remote area heli-transfers requires permits and authorisations from the respective land owners and authorities.

REMOTE AREA RESUPPLY

Key to any off track trekking in Central Australia is having the option of resupply, namely water resup. Resupplies can be carried our on pre-designated timings, on request or through the use of pre-placed caches.

EVACUATIONS

If your trek goes pear shaped due to injury, equipment failure or other issues, heli-evacs are, in most situations, the only option for getting back to civilisation in a timely and safe manner.
