Program #18493RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
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.

This program is right for you if you want to step out of your comfort zone and participate in something truly amazing, have moments of meaningful comprehension about the natural world, and be revitalized as a person.

This is an excellent service program -- provided us with a broad spectrum of expertise, worthwhile service work and wonderful field trips on a converted lobster-boat -- and plenty of birding time.

Had great time on our first Road Scholar trip. Instructors were knowledgeable and fun. Other guests were pleasant too-interesting group. Food great, accommodations somewhat rustic, but we expected that.

If you like birds, seabirds, nature, and convivial company this is a wonderful opportunity to experience such with experts in the field.

Web site is buggy and frustrating to use. I would have given more feed back, but it would take too much time.

A highly entertaining and rewarding adventure. We were provided a unique perspective on scientific research being carried out as well as the ability to give something back in the way of service projects. The dedicated people involved with running the camp at Hog Island are top notch.

This is a program I highly recommend if interested in birding, visiting islands. Area incredibly beautiful. Meals absolutely superb. Instruction outstanding. Service projects a lot of fun. Camaraderie wonderful.
I've taken 12 Elderhostels and this ranks right up at the top.
