See our Small Group programs.

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.
If you’re looking for a more flexible schedule with ample independent time and several meals on your own, then our FLEX learning adventures are made for you.
With Capitol Hill, the Smithsonian Museum complex, Arlington National Cemetery, the monuments of the National Mall and countless other historical and cultural riches within its bounds, Washington D.C. presents a challenge to even the most dedicated explorer hoping to take it all in on foot. So hop on a bike and explore every corner of the city, with time left over to thoroughly investigate the significance of some of the most important shrines to the nation’s heritage.


Highlights

• Pedal to the major sites on and around the National Mall and Capitol Hill, including the Capitol Building, Supreme Court, Smithsonian Museums and more.
• Cycle to Mount Vernon to learn about life at the plantation home of America’s first president, then board the “Miss Christin” for a study cruise on the Potomac.
• Get a new perspective on the city during an evening ride with stunning views in the Potomac River Basin.
