Yoga:

 

All of our yoga classes will be at a beginner level and no experience is required. Yoga is an amazing practise for your body, mind and soul; no level of flexibility or fitness is required, you participate to your own capabilities! 

Fitness: 

 

This is an active trip involving a hike every day plus general walking around the campsites and destinations. However, we always take hikes at a reasonable pace and have plenty of breaks to catch our breath, we are here to enjoy nature and this experience - not to push ourselves to our physical limits! To make the most out of this trip a reasonable level of fitness is required to enjoy all the hikes, but you may choose to sit out on a particular activity at any time if you feel you want to rest at the camp or a nearby safe spot such as a cafe or information center. 

The hikes: 

Uluru base walk - 10km (or 5km half). Flat easy path. 

Valley of the Winds - 7.4km. Moderate varying/uneven terrain, some steep inclines and stairs. 

Kings Canyon Rim Walk - 6.5km. Moderate varying/unever terrain, some steep inclines and stairs.

Ormiston gorge ghost gum walk - 2.5km easy path, some stairs.

Mount Sonder - Moderate/hard. 17km, uneven ground, not as steep as you think!! The path to the summit of Sonder begins with the hardest part first, several sets of man made stairs to get you up the steepest part. It then flattens out and becomes a much more gradual incline to the top along a dirt/rock trail. It will take us approximately 4 hours up and 2.5 hours down. There will be many breaks to catch our breath and have a drink. Please do not feel like you are going to slow the group down, we are in this together and we will support each other to reach the summit!

Meeting point:

 

The first thing to know: there are TWO airports in this area, Uluru (Connellan airport) and Alice Springs (ALS airport). They are 500km's apart. This tour begins at Uluru, however due to limited flight paths it may benefit you to fly into Alice Springs, this is okay but you must book your flight the day BEFORE the begining of the tour or earlier and book accomodation in Alice Springs for that night. I will then pick you up from your accomodation at 6am on the morning of the tour and we will drive to Uluru where we will meet the remainder of the group who are flying into Uluru airport at 1pm. For everyone flying into Uluru please book a flight landing before 2pm on the (almost all flights land between 10am-1pm).

Finish point:

 

This trip will finish in Alice Springs at aproximately 5pm on the last day of the tour. So you will want to book a nights accomodation in Alice Springs and fly out on the following day. There is currently no regular or cheap shuttle service going between Alice Springs and Uluru so you wont be able to return to Uluru to fly out from that airport.

Day 1

Meet with our amazing Wild Woman group at the Uluru airport and resort around midday. We will check out our campsite for the next two nights at the Ayres Rock Resort and have fun introductions whilst we tuck into some tasty lunch. This afternoon is a super exciting afternoon as we all witness Uluru for the first time, there will be lots of photos, "wow"s and laughs as we take in at the majesty of this monolith. You will be lead on a guided walk into the aborigional rock art sites and caves around the base of the rock by Madi. After walking some of the base, we will head to a beautiful spot to have a magical vinyasa yoga session as we watch the sun set over Uluru. Tonight we will spend our first night sleeping under the incredible outback stars in our swags, count the shooting stars as you fall asleep.
