No Stove Fuel No Transfer Policy

From 1 January 2018 we will introduce our 'No Stove Fuel No Transfer' Policy. 

The Larapinta Trail has an official No Open Fires law set by NT Parks and Wildlife. There are by-laws allowing NT Park Rangers to issue fines to hikers for non compliance if caught having open fires on the Larapinta Trail.  Only stove fuel is permitted on the Larapinta Trail.

In support of the No Open Fire rule set by NT Parks and Wildlife, we developed our 'No Stove Fuel No Transfer' Policy to encourage hikers to comply with the rule and adopt minimal impact practices as outlined in our Larapinta Trail Trek Code.

 

What this means is that from 1 January 2018 any bookings made with LTTS will include a clause in the Terms and Conditions outlining that the hiker will need to demonstrate that they have purchased stove fuel locally from outlets like Lone Dingo, Desert Dwellers or LTTS before the start of their trek. This will mean providing a copy of the receipt of purchase to LTTS or show the receipt to LTTS prior to their trek start date. If the receipt cannot be provided their booking will be deemed void and will be cancelled with no refunds offered. This will be in the Terms and Conditions, so read them carefully before you agree to them.

If hikers plan on not taking any stove fuel, we will encourage they consider booking with another transfer provider. We will not be making any exceptions to this rule.

 

Fires on the Larapinta Trail are a significant problem and increases the risks of wildfires and long term damage to the natural environment. No Stove Fuel, No Transfer.

Group Booking Limitations

From 4 December 2017, Larapinta Trail Trek Support (LTTS) will no longer be taking any group bookings of more than 5 people. Five hikers are our maximum per group or booking.  The policy change is based on our alignment and commitment to our Larapinta Trail Trek Code which is focused on minimal impact trekking on the Larapinta Trail.

Existing group bookings will remain unchanged.

New Trek Code for the Larapinta Trail

Larapinta Trail Trek Support (LTTS) has developed a trek code based on minimal impact trekking specific to the Larapinta Trail and the Tjoritja / West MacDonnell National Park. There are 10 codes which centre on reducing a hikers impact on the natural, cultural, visual and auditory environment.

 

The Larapinta Trail Trek Code will be introduced by LTTS on 1 January 2018. The trek codes will be listed on our website with an outline for each code including practical information and tips on how to adopt and apply the codes while on the trail and in the national park. 

The Larapinta Trail Trek Code is an initiative of LTTS.
