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.
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.
Get inside Yellowstone National Park to experience the only essentially undisturbed geyser basins left in the world, with the greatest number of displays. In this stunning setting, investigate the volatility and inner workings of geysers such as Old Faithful, brilliant colors and intricate patterns of algae that ring hot springs and bubbling mud pots, and the hiss of steaming fumaroles.


• Background sessions on geology and the study of planet Earth set the stage for two full-day field trips into the park.
• Learn about the park’s early history and how a succession of explorers, trappers and developers responded to its wonders.
• Discover why Yellowstone is an important case study of human interaction with the environment.
