overview

St. Andrew's Hospice is Lanarkshire's only specialist hospice which provides specialist care services to patients from across Lanarkshire with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Trek the Grand Canyon to raise vital funds for St Andrew's Hospice.

On an exciting eight day trip to the Grand Canyon we will hike through the tranquil Havasupai Indian Reservation, explore towering canyons, dive under cascading waterfalls and wonder along peaceful creeks, in only five days of trekking. Our adventure begins in Las Vegas with a visit to the Hoover Dam, a hike through the Black Mountain canyons, and a cruise down Route 66. We will then climb into the Grand Canyon where we will swim in Havasu Creek’s turquoise pools and jump into the cooling waters below the ‘New’ Navajo Falls. After receiving a blessing from a Havasupai tribal elder, we will camp under the stars before returning to Las Vegas for a celebratory night of fun. 

This fully-inclusive adventure to the Grand Canyon will begin as soon you register; you will receive a challenge pack with all the essentials you may need. As a team we will fly to Las Vegas, ready to hike the Grand Canyon!
