USA, Grand Canyon Trek

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 287 miles long was simply not available; the distances were deceptive, the scale unimaginable. On this challenge you descend into one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, into the heart of the Grand Canyon at Havasu Canyon, where we will hike and explore this incredible landscape, crossing travertine pools of turquoise blue whilst we spending the evenings camping under the stars. Some say you haven’t lived until you’ve taken a journey through the Grand Canyon. This challenging adventure takes you through the heart of the canyon and will leave you with a sense of accomplishment, awe and a true appreciation and love of the grandest place on earth.

Best time of year: January, February, March, April, May, June, October, November, December Grade: Moderate
Number of days: 8
