6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.
Relatively untouched by modern culture, California’s Channel Islands National Park is an oasis of natural splendor, earning the nickname “America’s Galapagos.” Travel by boat and experience two of the five islands that comprise the park — Anacapa, with its steep sea cliffs and lighthouse, and Santa Cruz, the most diverse. Get up close to the rich array of plant life, sea birds, fish and marine mammals — some found nowhere else in the world.


Highlights

• Expert naturalists lead expeditions to two of the islands of Channel Islands National Park.
• Discover how the islands’ isolation has created a unique ecosystem.
• Trace the human history from the Chumash Indians, to explorers, fur traders, ranchers and scientists.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles on uneven terrain. Climbing ladder from boat to dock or pier; climbing 157 stairs to island plateau. Boat trip one hour each way.

Coordinated by Road Scholar.
