TREK PACKAGE ADD-ONS
The Trek Package Add-On are extra services you can add-on to your booking, whether this is a trek package or transfer. The Add-On's provide great trek package options to enhance your Larapinta Trail trek, make life a little easier and muscle up your trek or preparation.
You can now add on extras after you have made your initial booking, but
the extras cost more if you add on later.
It is cheaper if you add on extra's when you first make your booking.
There is a range of trek communications available for hire from LTTS which includes PLB’s, satellite phones, trackers and other devices.

This add-on service includes retrieving the trek containers ( with whatever items in your container you want to be returned) from the food storerooms or from a cache along the Larapinta Trail. Once retrieved, the containers are secured in LTTS storerooms in Alice Springs and then delivered directly to your accommodation reception/storeroom at the completion of your trek.

The Bounce Box is a container or containers which bounce between the three main food drop points: Standley Chasm, Ellery Creek, Ormiston Gorge. Hikers will choose a bounce box if they want one container with pre-packed items (often luxury & comfort zone goodies, support gear, clothing etc) that they want at each food drop when they get there ( as well as their food drop container). After your last bounce box container is used, it will be retrieved and returned to Alice Springs and delivered to your accommodation. Price includes bounce from Alice Springs to Standley Chasm or Ormiston Gorge depending on your trek direction. Available for E2E Trek Packages only
