Adventure travel specialist, World Expeditions, has announced a return to an exciting sector of its domestic operations from 1 August, 2020, resuming its range of guided and self-guided walks on the Larapinta Trail in the Red Centre and a guided experience along the Jatbula Trail in the Top End.
World Expeditions CEO, Sue Badyari, said the company is doing all it can to help travellers get back to domestic travel while being cognisant of safety factors by introducing a range of Covid safe operational measures, accepting no deposit bookings and delaying timeframes for the payment of trip balances.
The company is providing maximum flexibility for travellers by continuing to accept bookings with $0 deposits and, for added peace of mind, delaying payment of final balances for confirmed Larapinta and Jatbula trips until 14 days prior to the trip departure date, rather than the usual 40 days.
World Expeditions has also completed a COVID-19 Safety Plan that is registered with the Northern Territory Government.
The company’s Northern Territory trips are operated by the company’s domestic brand, Australian Walking Holidays, and are centred around the Jatbula Trail in the Top End and the Larapinta Trail in the Red Centre.
World Expeditions pioneered walking on the Larapinta Trail more than 25 years ago and today remains the only company with a network of semi-permanent campsites, complete with heated lounge areas, private sleeping accommodation with off ground beds and hot showers which have received the highest accolades of being awarded the Brolga award multi times for their eco credentials.
Its 6 day Classic Larapinta Trek in Comfort, which is one of the founding Great Walks of Australia, is the company’s flagship guided walking experience, and offers walkers access to the facilities of the campsites, as well as the opportunity to walk with only a day pack, with luggage transferred between camps in company vehicles.
In addition to the ‘In Comfort’ series of Larapinta walks, Australian Walking Holidays also offers a range of self-guided, wilderness camping options, up to the full 223km Larapinta traverse.
In the Top End, the Jatbula Trail is a wilderness camping, full-pack carrying trek along the Jatbula Trail on the Arnhem Land escarpment.
Often described as the Top End’s must-do walk, the Jatbula Trail provides fitter trekkers with an exciting exploration of Nitmiluk National Park’s magnificent waterfalls, Jawoyn Aboriginal rock art and opportunities to refresh in the many fresh waterholes along the route.
