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.
Fly, bus, train and sail 1,100 miles through the Last Frontier. Fly to Barrow for a look at how Inupiat Eskimos live off land and sea and to celebrate the summer solstice. Watch the sun wheel around the sky, never setting below the horizon. Meet research scientists, take a field trip to see muskoxen, caribou and reindeer at the University of Alaska Fairbanks large animal research center and stand underneath the Alaska Pipeline. Spend two nights at the end of the road deep in the heart of Denali National Park, then take the Alaska Railroad to Seward’s Alaska SeaLife Center, where researchers share their work rehabilitating the ecosystem after the Exxon Valdez oil spill.


Highlights

• In Denali scout for moose, Dall sheep, wolves, bears and more.
• Ride the rails to the “land of ice” and study the ice ages, volcanic forces and rising and falling sea levels.
• Watch for whales, otters and puffins from a ship in Kenai Fjords National Park.

Activity Notes

Walk short distances, uneven terrain. Optional hikes. Standing about one hour. Sailing on the open ocean during a four-hour field trip in Seward.
