Grand Canyon Trek

This Grand Canyon trek for charity is an exceptional charity challenge experience, to a wondrous native land hidden beneath the rim of the majestic Grand Canyon.

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.

The highlight of our 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.

Camping within this reservation we then embark on a series of day hikes that will enable us to explore this stunning ‘hidden world’. Trekking permits are limited and the only access to the reservation is by foot or helicopter – this is a very exclusive and one of the most special of charity challenges and we urge you to join us – you won’t be disappointed, we promise!

What goes down, must come back up! Once we have triumphantly hiked out of the Canyon, we then transfer to Las Vegas to celebrate the completion of one of the best fundraising events around – late nights will be had by all we expect!

You probably have never experienced a place like the Havasupai Indian Reservation. You may just leave your heart there!
