Road Scholar
Program #10414ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
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.
Wake up on Christmas morning and experience the sunrise over one of the world’s natural wonders – the Grand Canyon! The snow dusted monuments of the Canyon, contrasted with its multi-hued layers and sheer enormity, are a sight to behold. While in Sedona enjoy live western music with a holiday twist. Finally, enjoy a field trip to historic Jerome, once Arizona’s largest copper mining town and now a thriving artist colony.


Highlights

• En route to the Grand Canyon, travel through scenic Oak Creek Canyon and up its famed switchbacks to Arizona’s high country.
• On Christmas Eve, experience sunset over the Grand Canyon, then revel in a special holiday dinner before attending a candlelight service at the Canyon’s “Shrine of the Ages.”
• In Sedona, walk through the Mexican-inspired art village of Tlaquepaque; at Jerome State Historic Park, see its impressive mountain-side setting and displays of its unique mining history.
