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.

My 36th program and one of the most economical ones and well worth the low price. Excellent staff, scenic beauty on all rides, educational hikes, bike stops for flora/fauna lessons, and live raptors presented in a classroom setting with pertinent info provided on each. Food was good and plentiful. Two rides of different lengths available each day. A workshop on bike repair and maintenance was also provided the first day. A great program and value!

Loved my cycling week in the northwoods! Not only good, moderate cycling, but excellent learning opportunities about what the northwoods ecosystems are all about. Perfect time of year to experience the serenity the area offers.

I loved this trip! The beautiful, peaceful Northwoods as a biking destination can't be beat, and the atmosphere, instructors, and staff at the Trees for Tomorrow location were first rate. I will be going back!

We recently attended a Road Scholar biking experience in Eagle River, MN. The leader and staff were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We had a great week biking on many beautiful trails and paved back roads in the woods and around lakes. We recommend the trip to others. The amount of challenge was just right for moderately-fit 66 year olds.
