Charity: Grand Canyon Trek Open Challenge

Charity: Grand Canyon Trek Open Challenge Charity: Grand Canyon Trek Open Challenge
£2600

When the first European explorers came to the edge of the Grand Canyon on their search for El Dorado, in 1540, they literally had no idea what they saw. 

On this stunning challenge we will descend into both the Grand Canyon and Zion Canyon located in one of Utah’s iconic National Parks where sheer red canyon walls and narrow slot canyons have earned the nickname “Yosemite dressed in red.” Zion Canyon is the total opposite to the Grand Canyon. At 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 and red canyon slots.  The views are unimaginable!

We end this incredible challenge in Las Vegas, the city that never sleeps!
