Understanding our challenge types


This incredible trekking challenge takes us through the majestic Grand Canyon National Park - one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. We'll explore a new trail every day, splitting into smaller groups for three days to explore different areas of the canyon. Each day on this adventure will bring new and breathtaking views of this unforgettable landscape, and we'll spend our nights camping under the moon and stars. We'll even celebrate our achievements with a meal under the bright lights of Las Vegas!

Our challenge starts with an acclimatisation trek through Oak Creek, home to rock monoliths such as Cathedral Rock. We’ll then enjoy a picnic lunch near the creek before transferring to our campsite. Our Grand Canyon expedition really begins the following day, and after breakfast at camp we set off to conquer one of three trails - Bright Angel Trail, South Kaibab Trail and the Grandview Trail! We split into smaller groups for today and the following two days’ trekking, and today we’ll decide how the groups will be split.

Our final day of trekking sees us conquer the Rim Trail, where we enjoy our last views of the Grand Canyon as we trek along the rim and reflect on our accomplishments. Glowing triumphantly after our trek, we transfer to Las Vegas for our celebratory dinner.

The incredible experience really is one of the most iconic challenges out there and top of many adventurers' bucket lists - join us and achieve something truly amazing!
