Program #11010ENZ
9 Days | 8 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
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.
Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, Canyon de Chelly, Aztec, and Chaco Canyon — investigate these large archaeological sites in Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico to better understand the early Puebloan lifestyle in the Southwest.


Highlights

• Accompanied by an archaeologist, address how regional climate, geology and agriculture influenced the lives of the Ancient Pueblo Indians.
• At each spectacular site, learn how these indigenous people faced the challenges which presented themselves in each region, study their unique connection to the land and learn about the development of Anasazi cultural groups.
• View the remains of an incredibly complex civilization and gain perspective on how Native Americans retain ancestral traditions while adapting to the present-day.

Activity Notes
