Program #19493ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: 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.
Explore the Great River of the West with other experienced kayakers on a long-distance program that exposes you to little-traveled sections of the river. Paddle with expert guides who know the cultural and natural history of the Lower Columbia, opening a world of wildlife areas and geologic formations visible only from the water.


Highlights

• Paddle to Gray’s Point and back along a forested shoreline frequented by otters, bald eagles and Roosevelt elk.
• Spend a day practicing skills such as bracing, rescues, rolling and towing with coach Karl Andersson.
• Conclude with a scenic trip along the rugged Columbia north shore from Skamokawa to Altoona, passing the ruins of old cannery towns, a basalt arch, and 100-foot cliffs.
