Marie Curie, Grand Canyon Trek 2020

12th - 19th September 2020

Grand Canyon and Zion Canyon Trek – Trek the mighty two!

When the first European explorers came to the edge of the Grand Canyon on their search for El Dorado in 1540,they were overwhelmed by what they found.  The visual vocabulary for a gorge a mile deep, 6 miles wide and 277 miles long was not available; distances were deceptive, the scale unimaginable.

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!
