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. The visual vocabulary for a gorge a mile deep, six miles wide and 277 miles long was simply not available; the distances were deceptive, the scale unimaginable.
On this trekking challenge you descend into one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, the heart of the Grand Canyon at Havasu Canyon, where we will trek and explore this incredible landscape, crossing travertine pools of turquoise blue, spending evenings under the stars camping.
Some say you haven't lived until you've taken a journey through the Grand Canyon. This challenging trek will leave you with a sense of accomplishment, awe and a true appreciation and love of the grandest place on earth.
