Program #11522RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
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.

Wonderful trip! Our group leader, Clem Ogilby was courteous, warm and attentive. This trip was well organized and interesting. Food was excellent throughout. The weather was nice in July. Would encourage others to try this program. Helen Ling, Silver Spring, MD

We learned a lot about Portland and surrounding areas thanks to two fantastic leaders and several very knowledgeable speakers. I loved seeing all the street art as well as the Art Museum. The couple of extra pounds I brought home was certainly worth the adventure! Glenda Johnson Tucson, AZ

On completing the evaluation, there was one section where the questions were overwritten by, e.g. the Norton sign + one or two other signs, making it difficult to read.

Program was wonderful! Both Sally and Countessa Carolyn were available and planning alternative sites due to the rain. My suggestion is to do this program in either July, August or September. Though, we found the group had all the get up and go necessary, rain or shine.
