THE ROUTE LESS TRAV­ELLED

Food and Travel (UK) - - Arrivals -

For­get fight­ing against a tide of vis­i­tors on World Ex­pe­di­tions’ new Grand Canyon Un­ex­plored walk­ing trip. In­stead, im­merse your­self in un­fath­omable vis­tas and the quiet still­ness that per­vades the back-coun­try trails. Start­ing at the North Rim – closed to day trip­pers in Oc­to­ber – you’ll trek sel­dom-vis­ited trails dwarfed by the Pal­isades of the Desert be­fore de­scend­ing 1,400m to the crash­ing Colorado River, where you’ll sleep un­der the stars. Treks are be­tween 5-15km daily – ex­pect to tra­verse scree slopes, switch­backs and ver­tig­i­nous rims. You’ll head through Pue­bloan ruins on the Es­calante Route and the quartz-stud­ded 75 Mile Canyon, and scram­ble through a 90m-high labyrinth slot. Seven days from 21-22 Oc­to­ber, from £1,595pp in­clud­ing trans­fers, meals, tents and equip­ment. world­ex­pe­di­tions.com
