Should I walk it? Which way?
So you want to walk the Light to Light Walk? Heard it’s not too hard – but very beautiful and uncrowded. Worth doing.
You’ve done a bit of homework. Found out it’s 31km so pretty easy, relatively speaking. And it’s way way down south of Sydney (or north of Melbourne). It’s definitely worth doing – but how? You now know it’s not all that easy to get to this place.
So here’s the thing:
- the Light to Light Walk starts about 3/4 hour drive from the nearest town – Eden.
- Eden is a little town. There is no regular transfer service to the Walk.
So just getting there is a personal challenge, it seems! Even more reason to walk it!
After a bit more homework, you’ve found out from National Parks & Wildlife Service that:
- there is no regular transfer service – if you drive in and leave your car, you have to find a way back to it.
- there’s no potable water anywhere on the walk;
- you have to book and pay for a campsite;
- you have to pay a separate day fee for the car.
And then you found out there are few ways to do this. Light to Light Camps offers flexible options. Get us to do absolutely everything. Or do it on your own steam. Either way, we can get you on track.
- Challenge yourself. Book your transfer with Light to Light Camps. We’ll meet you at whichever end you prefer, and transfer you to the other end so you can walk back to your car. Take as long as you like. You’ll be carrying everything: tent, bedding, extra clothing, food, cooking utensils and stove, safety gear. Many love to do it this way. Nobody but yourself to please. At one with nature. Perfect.
- “The Works” – you walk. We do all the work. Carry only one of our Mont daypacks with essentials – and walking poles if you prefer. Arrive into a fully set up luxury camp. Put your feet up. Have a cuppa, or a drink. Hot shower, nibbles around the campfire (we bring our own wood), a few quiet ones, a fresh delicious 2 course meal showcasing local produce, fresh white sheets in your cosy sleeping bag. Curl up on your 10cm mattress in a roomy tent. Carpet mats, hot water bottles. Warm water to wash your face in the morning. All National Parks fees sorted, logistics taken care of. We’ve thought of everything.
Sorry – no tours running in November 2019 – we’ll be on our big trip to Patagonia. Some availability in December 2019. Otherwise, let’s talk about 2020 🙂
