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. 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.
“Only from trails can one come to know mountains intimately… where await scenes and adventures scarcely suggested by what can be viewed from below,” wrote Grand Teton National Park’s first naturalist, Fritiof Fryxell. Follow in the footsteps of Fryxell through some of the most spectacular scenery in the West with an experienced naturalist serving as your leader.


Highlights

• Enjoy expert-led hikes along the base of the magnificent Teton Range and continue your informative conversations into the evening.
• Learn about the botany, geology, and ecology of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, one of the last remaining large, nearly intact ecosystems in the northern temperate zone.

Activity Notes
