Call For Fundraising Amount.

Our Grand Canyon North Rim Adventure offer walks and hikes on some of the best trails in the entire Park. It’s sometimes referred to as the “other” Grand Canyon, because it is far less populated with visitors than the South Rim.

The trails we walk and hike are far different that anywhere else in Grand Canyon National Park. Though rugged and sometimes challenging (but only if you want), they offer peaceful, spectacular and scenic views seen no where else on Earth.

2018 - Team HIKE Adventures

Conquer The Crater - HIKE Iceland

 

Conquer The Crater is a spectacular full day hike that will offer participants an amazing challenge off the beaten track. Iceland’s dramatic and unique landscape will provide a once in a lifetime hiking experience that you will not forget!

 

All of the hike options will follow the same trail and are an out and back route. Participants will be transported to the starting point via specialized tundra vehicles. All start out in a very old glacial canyon and, regardless of which distance you choose, all will experience incredible views and unique geography.

Those on the 6K hike will walk through the canyon up to a stunning waterfall before returning to the start point. The 14K hikers will continue on up an escarpment and along a plateau, offering additional views and challenges. Those on the 24K hike will continue on the final ascent to two craters before turning back.

This is a truly EPIC hike!

Conquer The Canyon - HIKE The South Rim

Our Grand Canyon North Rim Adventure offer walks and hikes on some of the best trails in the entire Park. It’s sometimes referred to as the “other” Grand Canyon, because it is far less populated with visitors than the South Rim. Our walks, hikes and gatherings are in a word, FUN!!

The trails we walk and hike are far different that anywhere else in Grand Canyon National Park. Though rugged and sometimes challenging (but only if you want), they offer peaceful, spectacular and scenic views seen no where else on Earth.

Grand Canyon North Rim is very remote, secluded and offers Walking Connection friends a fantastic way to connect to nature and each other in a special way.

Opportunity to walk and hike 4 individual trails into, out of and around Grand Canyon's North Rim. Simply Spectacular!

*As an independent event ground transportation and entry into the park is not included in your fundraising amount.

Conquer The Mountain - Dublin, Ireland - HIKE The Wicklows!

From beginning to end, your journey is measured not in miles, but milestones. On this hike, the top milestone is Mullacor Summit, then, the trail becomes much more difficult! This hike was so popular in 2016, we're going back! 


This is a fantastic hike in the Wicklow Mountains. With a total elevation gain of 800 metres (2650') our team will start along the Green Road, then up the Derrybawn to the Mullacor Summit. This is where we leave the trail behind and continue on to the Lugduff and Corrig Hills.

The combination steep ascents and descents, the varied conditions underfoot of the on and off trail terraine, along with the weather typical of Ireland in October, this promises to be a challenging 13+ mile adventure for even the most seasoned hikers.

A bit shorter, but no less challenging hike is a 9.3 mile (2050' ascent) trail that splits off at Lugduff Gap to a boardwalked trail along the hanging granite cliffs named the Spinc. A steep descent through a dense forest culminates at Poulanass Waterfall. There are the added bonus of exploring the Monastic Centre with its tower that was build in the 800's, its ancient graveyard, beautiful surrounding park, lakeside trails and boardwalks. This is a full day adventure in one of central Ireland's world famous Wicklow Mountains National Park.
