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.

You learn interesting things you never knew you didn't know, through eating and dancing Cajun, visiting the Cajun swamps and other environments, and well presented lectures. You would never figure it out on your own.

Nice balance of insight into the unique culture and ecology of Cajun Country. Great coordinator. First class instructors and field guides. Decent accommodation. Fab food. Highlights for me were the live music and dance sessions and the Lake Martin field excursion through the swamp.
