Thames Hospice Grand Canyon Trek

Conquer one of the Seven Wonders of the World!
14th - 21st September 2023

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.

Join us on this stunning challenge to trek through the majestic wonders of the mighty Grand Canyon. 

We trek for 5 days, experiencing a new trail everyday, splitting into smaller groups for three of the days to conquer some of the iconic hikes of the canyon – Bright Angel Trail, South Kaibab Trail and the Grandview Trail! We finish on the Rim Trail, where we enjoy our last views of the Grand Canyon.

Each day will bring a new adventure with breath-taking views of this unforgettable landscapes. At night we will camp under the moon and stars.

We end this incredible challenge with a celebration in Vegas, the city that NEVER sleeps!
