Perhaps you already know that water is important in the desert. But many people are surprised to learn how important water really is, and just how much Drinking Water they need to consume whilst on tour, particularly whilst hiking outside in the hot desert sun.

How much Drinking water do I need to bring?

We carry cold drinking water in our buses at all times, and there are opportunities to refill your water bottles at each camp, rest stop and before each hike. 

You need your own water bottles! Usually this is 2, depending on their size. Each adventurer needs to carry enough water on each hike.

How much water do we need to carry on the hikes?

Unfortunately, your guide is unable to include you on hikes unless you have what you need to keep safe. This includes a hat, strong (comfortable) shoes, and enough water to consume 1 litre per hour!

1 litre of water per person per hour (advice provided by Northern Territory Government, and Parks Australia)

If we are walking a 3 hour hike such as the Kings Canyon Rim Walk, you will need to take enough water for 3 hours, this = 3 litres!
