Beginning in the Grand Canyon, moving to Bryce Canyon and then to Zion National Park, the trip culminates in Las Vegas, with a celebration dinner to support the supporters’ impressive achievement. From £2600.

Trekking rough trails, at altitude, in three different destinations, while camping, provides the challenge on this trip.

Day 1 - Depart LHR for Phoenix, Arizona

Having met with your Tribal Tracks leader at the airport, you fly to Phoenix where you will be met by our American team.  Transfer to your hotel in Phoenix where the team will enjoy a welcome dinner!

Lodging: Holiday Inn Express & Suites (or equivalent)

Meals: Dinner

Total Hiking: None

Day 2:  Phoenix to the Grand Canyon via Sedona  

After breakfast, we leave our hotel at 8:00am and are transported to Red Rock State Park in Sedona, where we have a gentle hike, getting used to the altitude, adjusting to the time difference and soaking up the amazing surroundings.

We then transfer to our camp for the night, camping close to our destination for the next day – the spectacular Grand Canyon.  If we have time this evening, we take a stroll along the South Rim trail, making the most of the spectacular sunsets, which transform the colours in the Canyon itself.

Lodging: Campground in or near Grand Canyon National Park

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Total Hiking: 10 kilometers (6 miles)

Elevation Change: 200-400 meters gain & loss (600-1200 feet)

Day 3 -  Descent into the Canyon... 

After an early breakfast, we hit the trails.

To limit the impact on the environment, the US National Parks Authority requires us to split into smaller groups. You can choose from Bright Angel, South Kaibab, Hermit and Grandview trails depending upon the constitution of the group.  The real challenge is the elevation change, but the amazing, out of this world scenery will take your mind off the pain!

This evening we camp, making the most of the starry skies to bond around the campfire.  This is our last Grand Canyon camp – let’s make the most of the stars!

Lodging: Campground in or near Grand Canyon National Park

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Total Hiking: 9.7-19.6 kilometers (6-12.2 miles)

Elevation Change: up to 951 meters elevation loss/gain (3120 feet)

Day 4 - Grand Canyon to Lake Powell  

Today we swap trails, so all the groups have the chance to experience the same views, towering cliffs and varied wildlife as you climb through the various strata layers, essentially climbing through Arizona’s history.

Once the treks are completed, we have a 2.5 Hour transfer to the shores of beautiful Lake Powell, where we find our campground for the evening.

Lodging: Wahweap Campground at Lake Powell

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Total Hiking: 9.7-14.8 kilometers (6-9.2 miles)

Elevation Change: up to 945 meters elevation loss/gain (3100 feet)

Day 5 - Bryce Canyon National Park 

After breakfast, we leave our campground and head to the Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon is like a something from another world.  Leaving a beautiful forest, you hike down into a large bowl, full of ‘hoodoos’ – the surreal pillars of orange rock which rise like needles from the ground. Here, we have the choice of the Navajo + Peekaboo Loop or Fairyland Loop trails.

Lodging: Campground in or near Zion National Park

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Total Hiking: 10.5-12.9 kilometers (6.5-8 miles)

Elevation Change: up to 704 meters elevation loss/gain (2309 feet) 

Day 6 - Zion to Vegas.

 After breakfast, we get to hike Zion National Park.  The drive to Zion is spectacular.  Entering the park on a road tunnelled through the side of a mountain, you again emerge in a completely different world.  Very different to the Grand Canyon or Bryce, Zion has sheer cliffs, cascading waterfalls and is generally like a lush oasis in what is generally a very arid zone. Today we hike the Middle Emerald Pool/Scouts Lookout Loop.  

Afterwards, we drive through spectacular scenery to Las Vegas, where we spend the night and enjoy a celebration dinner.

Lodging: Excalibur Resort Casino (or equivalent)

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Celebration Dinner

Total Hiking: 10.5 kilometers (6.5 miles)

Elevation Change: 335 meters elevation gain/loss (1100 feet)
