The North Flinders Ranges offers some of the most stunning landscapes in Australia.
Suitable for most walkers, this accommodated trek includes selected walks on sections of the famous Heysen Trail. This walking tour uncovers a rolling range of majestic peaks and rugged ridges on a trail whick combines exceptional views with both enjoyable strolls and achievable challenges. The forests of cypress pines create an almost alpine ambiance in these semi-arid ranges with the dry climate creating ideal conditions for walking.
This trip is operated in a comfortable style where you can enjoy walking with just a daypack while our accommodation facilities offer comfort, stunning scenery and the best of outback hospitality.
When planning to head truly remote – away from even the main walking trails – camels are the perfect travelling companions in the outback.
Carrying your food, water and swags on a traditional pack saddle, these ships of the desert, many of which featured in the movie ‘Tracks’ by Robin Davidson, will allow you to gain a real sense of isolation as you absorb the beauty of the natural surroundings in this wild part of Australia that is home to Lake Frome and Wilpena Pound. Appreciate the birdlife, yellow footed wallabies, flora, station and old lead mine ruins and remnants as you travel along dry creek beds, through rugged plains country and past sheer rock faces and large gorges that are generally not accessible to travellers and locals alike. At night, your expert local guide will share his astronomy knowledge as you star gaze up at the dark night sky.
During this camel supported walk there is no vehicle support with one camel saddled for riding should guests wish to experience this as part of their adventure.
