At the Grampians Peaks Walking Company, we have developed a range of tours and services to make those experiences accessible to all. No matter your level of hiking experience, your time constraints, budget or thirst for adventure, we can bring your experience to life. Read on to find out more about Grampians Luxe.

Each day you will only need to carry a small day pack with water, rain jacket, camera, a bit of sunscreen and some snacks. This shouldn't weigh more than 3-5 kg.
What will I be eating?
All our programs are filled with healthy, fresh and delicious meals. We will take care of everything (as outlined in each itinerary) for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even some snacks along the way. Exact meals will vary depending on the itinerary and the season but for some examples; breakfasts will be a mix of continental (cereals, muesli, fruit, yogurt etc) and cooked (Pancakes, or Spanish baked eggs). Lunch could be a freshly made cold meat or falafel wrap or healthy chicken and salad bowl. Dinner will range wildly as some itineraries are fully catered in house and others are spent dining out. Either way, options are fresh, healthy, delicious and of course, plentiful!
