Grand Canyon Trek

Grand Canyon Mountain TrekkingThis challenge descends deep into one of the best natural wonders of the world on one of the best charity events! It begins with an acclimatisation trek through Sedona, with its popular red rock formations, also known as Red Rock Country. Natives consider this to be the spiritual vortex to the south west of America and it’s not surprising why – Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon rival many national parks the World over.

The highlight of this trek for charity will be the descent of over 3,100 ft into the mind blowing Grand Canyon following an ancient Indian trail that leads us into the breathtaking Havasupai Indian Reservation – the bright blue green lagoons, huge waterfalls and scenery within the reservation are by far some of the best our planet Earth has to offer.
