Reconnect Through Nature
The benefits of walking are well known, less known is the wonderful ability for families to reconnect though the simple act of trekking overnight together and discovering the simple pleasures of our unique West Australian bush. We are blessed with short trails in our nearby National Parks together with longer trails on the Bibbulmun Track and Cape to Cape Track. Local trails accommodate walkers of all experience levels with journeys showcasing magnificent seasonal wildflowers, scenic forest, and breathtaking panoramic views all within a short drive from Perth. Experience the full joy of staying on track – meet other trekkers, hear their amazing stories, warm yourself at the campfire (seasonal), wake to misty quiet mornings, enjoy the feelings of independence and simplicity.
Simply Trekking values a hiking experience that not only is a fun nature time but also produces a positive emotion. It is believed that the more positive emotion you experience, the more resilient you will be. To achieve this, we use the key pillars of Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness, GEM, as part of the focus in the training of our guides.
Simply Trekking offers the experience to safely learn multi day trekking skills with the latest technology lightweight backpacks full of ultralight trekking gear.
