From mid January 2025, LTTS will launch a range of online courses for prospective Larapinta Trail hikers, which will provide practical, useful, objective and professional-grade content and info from Larapinta Trail experts.


The courses will be developed completely in-house at LTTS locally in Alice Springs. Combining 18 years of knowledge and experience of the Larapinta Trail and all the intensity of LTTS operations, you can be assured the quality, accuracy and content of the course will be epic, no guesswork, just rock solid useable info.

*In the 2022 season, more than 52% of our customers arrived in Alice Springs poorly prepared and not knowing what they exactly booked and what to expect on arrival and on the trail. This is despite all the information available. As such there was a 42% failure rate between April-June.
