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.

It doesn't take a taste for Cajun food to enjoy this experience, but it does help. The instructor for this program has you busy learning about the Cajun culture as well as the food. Bring your appetite and enjoy--Aiyheeeeeeee!

This fun filled foodie program will have you licking your chops. The three cooking sessions are totally hands on but accommodate different levels of cooking skills. The food we prepared was unbelievably good. You will get to know the locals in several behind the scenes food oriented tours of boudin factories and local grocery stores. Dinners are at local joints. A visit to an accordion factory included a rousing concert and we ended the program with a swamp tour and dinner and two stepping at a local dance hall where we tried to burn off all those calories.

If you like Cajun food, then by all means take this program. You will learn a lot and enjoy the process. And you will also get to see some of the area around and in Lafayette.

Had a wonderful time. Patti is a great group leader who really loves this work. Last minute change when chef cancelled was perfect and showed how creative Patti is. We cooked 3 mornings and took food tour 4th day. The other activities were great but to me the swamp tour was really the best. Met a bunch of really nice people.
