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. 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.
In hiker parlance, it’s called a “14er” — a mountain that exceeds 14,000 feet above sea level. With 54 to its credit, Colorado has the most 14ers in the continental U.S. Get ready to join rarefied air, as you accompany our expert naturalists and outdoor professionals on an exhilarating and enriching Rocky Mountain hiking adventure to bag a 14er yourself. Choose from two offerings: The first includes beautiful hikes that build throughout the week, culminating in a summit attempt of a single 14er; the second offering is for experienced hikers and is extremely challenging, as you attempt climbs of three different 14ers. Each of the three climbs builds on the last in difficulty and unique beauty to create a truly “peak” experience!


• Discover the teamwork, challenge and tremendous sense of achievement of summiting a Rocky Mountain “14er.”
• Experience the Rockies from a different perspective: on an exciting whitewater-raft trip.
• With an expert naturalist, learn firsthand about the area and its resident plants and animals.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
