New for 2023
TTTv2 copy.jpg
The TTT Special is a seven-day, six-night course that combines a suite of hiking, trekking and field specialist skills that LTTS has fused together to offer a skills-packed, one-stop-shop course that will teach you all the basics for multi-day/extended hiking, cross-country trekking and personal safety in remote areas- all in one hit.

Almost all our course trial participants, many of whom have been hiking for years, wished they had the opportunity to do a course like this because it would have saved them years of struggle, costly purchases and missed opportunities. We see this Dunning–Kruger effects countless times on the Larapinta Trail every year, much to our despair and to the exasperation of our time-poor field support crew.

The course is delivered by very experienced, competent and skilled instructors, both male and female, with more than 20 years of hiking, trekking and military, emergency service or SAR experience. All courses are conducted out-field at locations listed below

Here is a list of some of the subjects we will cover. All are delivered in a practical way that is actionable and usable. No waffle or Powerpoint nonsense delivery.
