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.
Journey among the islands of Oahu, Kauai, the Big Island of Hawaii and Maui to focus on each island's history, geology, physical environment, flora and fauna. Spectacular views of the islands from the ocean show the difference in topography, age and personality of each. Learn why each island is so special.


Highlights

• Explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and learn about the island’s geothermal core with a volcanologist.
• An expert-led visit to a private cloud forest preserve on the Big Island highlights the diversity of its ecosystem.
• See the cliffs of Waimea Canyon, the geologically spectacular "Grand Canyon of the Pacific."
