Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular programs.
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.

have a question about needing to pack into one suitcase for the tour. what can i do with the wheeled carry-on i will use for the flight? that is in addition to my checked luggage when I fly?
also have question about just what is the expected low temperature of either glacier and the glacier ride day and the expected low temperature of banff and lake louise IN MID AUGUST WHEN WE ARE THERE?
I would also like to hear from others that are going on the aug.11-22 trip.

We are going to be on the trip beginning Aug 25 th and flying out of Boston. I would like to hear from others about the airline they used to fly to Jackson Hole and if you went early to spend a couple days before the trip.

Champa, my wife and I did same in Aug 2014, flying from Newark. Found it more relaxing to fly in the day before, then enjoy the town and then meetup with the tour at 6pm. Great FREE bus service takes you all around town; but 90% of what you want is within walking distance,. We spent a half day taking the chair lift up Snow King and walking the train at the top. We also stayed for the extra day at the same hotel as the tour; no need to pack and unpack an extra time. Hope you have Tim and Dave as your leader and bus driver. They were both exceptional!

"walking the trail", not the train!
Champa Bilwakesh Feb 02, 2015 at 08:42 AM

Thank you for your response, Fred. That sounds exactly like what we would like to do.
Champa Bilwakesh Feb 02, 2015 at 08:45 AM

Anyone extended their stay at the other end, at Calgary? Thanks.
