See our Small Group 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.

I will be driving to Program #1485RJ, June 22-27, 2014, and be glad to pick up one or two people at the Bangor Airport since it is right on my way and, of course, return you back to the airport on Friday.
John Rhode Jun 20, 2014 at 07:02 PM

If you're overwhelmed by requests, Robert, I'll add the same offer. I'll be going past Bangor about noon-ish on Sunday, June 22, and returning on the Friday..
Robert Hooker Jun 21, 2014 at 09:45 AM

Well, as a matter of fact I've been underwhelmed. It seems that I made the offer too late and other participants have already made their arrangements.

I am going to the #1485 program Sept 14-19 at Campobello and would like to invite someone to share the ride from Bangor Airport to the island and back (in a rented car). Anyone interested?
I live in Rockville MD.
Anne Schaetzke Jun 10, 2014 at 12:15 PM

Thanks for contacting me, Rachel. With the problem of logistics in getting to Campobello Island I have decided not to go.. I think that RoadScholar needs to do a much better job of getting people to these out-of-the-way places.

Anne Schaetzke Jan 13, 2014 at 06:00 PM

Unless you're driving, it doesn't appear that there is any easy access to Campobello. The Bangor, ME airport and St. John, New Brunswick airport is about a 3-hr drive away. Any suggestions?
Joann Smith Jan 14, 2014 at 09:19 AM

When I went, everyone seemed to either drive their own car, or get a rental at the airport (which is handy for your free afternoon, Campobello is gorgeous, but sort of in the middle of nowhere).
Anne Schaetzke Jan 14, 2014 at 10:19 AM

That's what I thought, Joann. Thanks so much for your input. I appreciate it.

Joann Smith Jul 03, 2013 at 11:42 AM

Looking forward to the program! I'm crossing my fingers that the leaves will be starting to turn, so it'll be a pretty drive up from Massachusetts.
