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.

The train trip across Canada with RS is a life time opportunity to experience the variety that exists there from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and the train ride itself is lots of fun with fantastic food, don't know how the train chef does it. The time in Jasper National Park was spectacular!

"The Canadian" train trip across Canada,Quebec City to Vancouver, was all we had hoped for. Participants were engaged in the learning experience and the natural beauty of the trip. We found people in every stop were friendly and helpful. Easy to travel in Canada. Great blend of city touring and train travel.

Our first Roads Scholar trip was the best trip we have taken in a long time. Everything was handled very well and we were very impressed with all accommodations and programs provided. We will be returning to Roads Scholar for future trips.

This was a most informative, fun trip. The train ride across the breadth of Canada really opened my eyes to the almost-foreign country to our north. I can really recommend this one!
