Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
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.

We are planning for trips in 2015. Are dates available for this trip?

Kimiko Murayose Feb 18, 2014 at 08:07 PM

I will participate in the Lake District and the Borders: Romance to Turbulence which starts on May 12.
I'm a Japanese and one of my friends advised me to join this wonderful Road Scholar program. I will join on my own. So I'm looking for a roommate with whom I can enjoy this trip.
I like taking a walk, swimming, growing flowers, and reading. I have been fascinated with the beauty of the Lake District and wanted to stay for a few days there. That's why I chose this program. I'm now retired. I hope I can meet wonderful people through this program. Please get in touch with me. Kimiko Murayose
