Larapinta Trek

We had a wonderful time on our recent 8 day Larapinta Trek. The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the assistance of our guides Adrian and Craig. Their flexibility, steady temperaments, knowledge, friendship, experience, sense of humor and ability in the kitchen took all the difficulties out of our experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything that should have happened happened, and happened when it should have. They made the whole experience for us a simple walk in the bush. We could not reccommend them more highly.

Utracks - Self Guided and Small Group Adventures :  Italy

From the colourful meadows of Tuscany to the rocky and dramatic coastline of Italy's south, this is a country that offers diversity on a plate.

Mountains feature prominently in Italy's topography. Italy's backbone is formed by the Apennines, from Genoa right down to Sicily. The Po River Valley in the country's northeast forms the largest lowland area. Italy is home to three active volcanoes - Stromboli in the Aeolian Islands, Vesuvius near Naples and Etna on Sicily.

Beauty simply abounds in Italy...
