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.
From the jagged alpine terrain of the Cascade Mountains to mossy rainforests and wave-battered headlands, discover why the Northwest landscape is as awe-inspiring as it is unique. Learn alongside experts as you explore some of the world’s grandest natural wonders.


Highlights

• At Crater Lake, marvel at a massive volcanic caldera holding the deepest lake in the U.S., then descend into Oregon Caves National Monument.
• Race the wind over a sea of sand in a dune buggy and meet the marine life at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
• Touch trees rooted when Caesar ruled Rome in the world’s largest remaining stand of virgin redwoods.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles, uneven terrain, sandy beaches, unpaved trails, steep steps.
