Upcoming Her Trails Adventure Retreats

Larapinta Women’s Trip:

An All-Inclusive Adventure Crafted by Women for Women

2024 –  August 23 to 29th (3 SPOTS REMAINING)

2025 – April 21 to 27 [now taking applications]

Embark on a transformative 7-day journey across the stunning Larapinta Trail, designed exclusively for women by women. This intimate, all-inclusive experience blends physical adventures with soulful exploration, offering you a rare opportunity to recharge, push your boundaries, and delve deep into your inner self. And not to be forgotten – you will make lifelong friends during this week.

Our Larapinta Women’s Trip is structured into three distinct chapters, each crafted to provide a holistic and empowering experience.

In Chapter One, we begin on a remote property just outside of Alice Springs. This is a place to disconnect from technology and the busyness of everyday life, creating space to learn about each other and ourselves. The work we do here builds the foundation for the relationships and care we will have for each other on the trail. Through mindfulness practices and community-building activities, you’ll ground yourself and prepare for the journey ahead.

Chapter Two challenges your limits with guided hikes and outdoor activities. Her Trails collaborates with Indigenous men and women from the land on which you will walk, allowing you to walk in the footsteps of their ancestors from Tjoritja (West MacDonnell Ranges) in Western Arrernte country in the Northern Territory. This chapter is enriched by their stories and wisdom, deepening your connection to the land. Our experienced guides will ensure that every woman, regardless of fitness level, is supported and encouraged. You’ll work within a team that celebrates your strengths and honours your current limitations.

This is not a race, but a collective journey where no woman is left behind. All our guides are expertly trained in emergency first aid and carry satellite phones and defibrillators, ensuring that you’re well cared for. Our partner promotes sustainable tourism practices and has eco-camps to minimize our ecological footprint while respecting the natural and cultural heritage of the area and its peoples.

In Chapter Three, it’s time to unwind and bring the entire experience together. Wash off the red dirt, put on a robe, and enjoy some luxury and space as you reflect on your journey. This chapter is about preparing to re-enter your world with renewed energy and an enlivened spirit, feeling empowered, nourished, and deeply connected.

More Than a Retreat, More Than a Hike

This journey is neither a retreat nor merely a hiking trip; it’s a profound opportunity to embrace the most powerful purpose we can have in life – to show up and be ourselves. By stepping away from the noise and distractions of daily life, you’ll discover a liberating sense of freedom and wildness that can only be found in nature.

Embrace the Power of Community

The Larapinta Women’s Trip is designed to foster a deep sense of community and shared experience. As you navigate the trails and share stories around the campfire, you’ll build lasting connections with like-minded women who are on the same journey of self-discovery and empowerment.
