Program #4895ENZ
7 Days | 6 Nights
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.
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.
Hike along sparkling lakes with majestic Mount Hood towering over the landscape, to vistas overlooking the forested Cascade Mountains, and to hidden gems such as Little Crater Lake hidden in the forest. Each day, learn about the history, geology, birds, and plants of the area during talks led by your hike leader. Enjoy the summer flowers or fall color of vine maples as you hike through old growth, mountain meadows and timberline scenes.
