ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
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.

Superior program! The leader is a professor/researcher in the Ice Age of this area. Hikes in the peak fall colors were exquisite. We had a good group of intellectually curious folks and the group was very cohesive. I highly recommend and hope Dr. M. will offer additional programs!

The leaders were well informed, providing easy to understand information for the novice as well as more in depth information for those who already had substantial background in the subject. They demonstrated excellent adaptability, providing "easier" options for participants who found the terrain somewhat more challenging than anticipated. Facilities were nice, food was good, and company was wonderful. Since much of the program was outdoors ideal weather made a good thing even better!

The Ice Age Trail was a wonderful program to attend. The leader was very informative about the glacial topography in the area. He took a tough subject and made it relatable if you had little to no background in geology. I enjoyed meeting everyone that attended. It was inspiring to meet such an accomplished group. Everyone was friendly and supportive. Thank you so much for my wonderful first Road Scholar trip.

The Ice Age Trail in Wisconsin was a great program and I would recommend it to anyone who has some familiarity with hiking, not just walking. The program is a stretch but I am proud to say that I was able to hike 4.6 miles in one day with only a few stops to catch our breath.
