6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
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.

please contact me at if you would like to share a car rental for the 2/1/15 - 2/6/15 program. I arrive JAX at 2:00 Sunday and depart 7:30 pm Friday. Or if you're driving and have room for one more, I'd be happy to pay for gas!

Anyone going on the 2/2314 trip from the Midwest? Sounds like such fun --

A friend and I are signed up for the Suwannee River trip Jan 19-24, 2014. We are flying into JAX on 1/16 and spending a couple days in St. Augustine before heading to the program. We'll rent a car for the St. Augustine portion but were hoping to avoid the high cost of renting for the full week. Anyone driving from JAX or St. Augustine area willing to take a couple passengers and return us to the JAX airport on 1/24/14? We'll be happy to share the cost.
