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.

What a wonderful memory and a great way to celebrate our 40th anniversary. I heard God's voice in the calving glacier, I saw His creativity everywhere, especially seeing Denali's peak, (and whales, spawning salmon, wildlife - to name just a few) & I felt His presence & answered prayers daily.
Alaska - a wonder to behold. And I did!

This is a great program. I now know so much more about Alaska and can appreciate this great state; this is coming from a Texan.

This is the only way to really see Alaska. The trip was very educational and the trip leaders were excellent; I learned a lot about Alaska's geology, history, culture and wildlife. I was hoping to have more hiking and to see more wildlife than we did.

It was the whole Alaska experience. Traveling by catamaran, bus, train, ship and foot. Seeing mountains, glaciers, animals, birds. Experience 24 hour days. We only missed the Northern Lights!

What an enjoyable and informative 2 week adventure! I had a great time with wonderful leaders and participants. It was a good way to experience the interior and southeast Alaska with informative and organized leaders who made the trip a real vacation. No dealing with organizing excursions people, or trying to coordinate extra activities; it was all done for me and it came off without a hitch. I was able to sit back and follow the well organized and well thought out list of activities that I really enjoyed , with others that seemed to enjoy it as much as I did. I am so glad I took the plunge and had my first great Road Scholar experience.

Very good two week survey tour of Alaska, combining both land and coastal areas.
