Join our team of budding explorers as we descend deep into one of the best natural wonders of the world on one of the best charity events!
We begin our American charity challenge 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.
Our descent into the Grand Canyon is along one of the most iconic routes the Bright Angel Trail. This trail was originally used by Native Americans to access the life-giving waters of the Indian Gardens 3,000ft below. We hike the same route descending through 750 million years of rock layers. Our aim is to finish at Plateau point where brave souls can inch towards the edge to catch a glimpse of the mighty Colorado River.
We continue our Grand Canyon adventure on the South Kaibab Trail which has equally epic views including the aptly named Ooh-Ahh Point before taking in the views at Cedar Ridge. Once back at the rim we take in our last views before heading to Lake Powell.
Our adventure continues further as we explore and conquer trails in Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. Colourful spires of rock, called hoodoos, create a surreal appearance throughout the park and at night more than 7,500 stars are visible at Bryce Canyon. Zion Canyon is totally opposite to Grand Canyon. At the Grand Canyon you can stand on the edge and look down, but at Zion Canyon you will look up from the bottom to view the beautiful sandstones.
Once we have successfully explored these natural wonders, we then transfer to Las Vegas to celebrate our trekking achievements!
We assure each day of this charity challenge will give us a different perspective of this breathtaking wonder. Join us on this incredibly popular challenge!
