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.
Add your own element to Northeast Florida’s long historical narrative as you immerse yourself in St. Augustine and Amelia Island and gain insights into the many centuries and cultures that have made them what they are today. Journey by trolley through Amelia Island to hear fascinating stories amid unique architecture. Visit Fort Clinch State Park and the Castillo de San Marcos to learn about the challenge of securing the coast. Learn about the ecology of Amelia Island from an expert on a study cruise, and explore the two destinations that will reveal the Henry Flagler connection.


• Explore St. Augustine, the oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement and port in the continental United States.
• Boat into the backwaters of Amelia Island and watch for rare birds, manatees and other wildlife along the rivers and marshes.
• Learn about St. Augustine’s transformation into a winter resort for the wealthy during the 1880s.
