6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
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.
Hiking boots and a daypack are your ticket to some magical forays into the Lake Powell area. Discover canyon country's secret treasures — hidden arches, slot canyons, ancient petroglyphs and matchless panoramic vistas. Naturalist guides reveal the geologic forces that have shaped these magical landforms.


Highlights

• On daily hikes, explore the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Navajoland, and the stunning Lake Powell region of rock, water and sky.
• Learn from regional experts about the dinosaurs, plants and animals, prehistoric Native Americans, Mormon pioneers, dam builders and contemporary culture that have defined themselves against this starkly beautiful landscape.
• Evenings include musical entertainment and a presentation on the adaptable and unique wildlife of the high desert.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Daily hikes of 3-7 miles of moderate difficulty, including cross-country and some rugged terrain; some rock scrambling one day in a slot canyon.

Coordinated by Northern Arizona University.
