Program #21339RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Equipment Requirements
A D-SLR camera (or compact camera that can be operated in manual mode) is required for this program along with a tripod, a laptop computer, and processing software (such as Adobe Elements 10, LightRoom 3 or 4, or PhotoShop CS5 or CS6). Accessories such as a remote release and polarizing filters are suggested but not required.
