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.
Arizona's expansive vistas, saguaro cactus, yawning canyons and rainbow rocks tell a story hundreds of centuries old, one only lately updated by the arrival and flourishing of human beings. Experience 800-year-old cliff dwellings at Montezuma Castle National Monument; Prescott, the capital of the Arizona Territory territorial; and Jerome, a copper mining town-turned-colony of artists.


• In Phoenix, visit the Heard Museum to study Native peoples like the Hohokam, whose ingenious canals first made the region arable, and admire genius of another kind at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West.
• Visit visionary Paolo Soleri’s socio-architectural experiment, Arcosanti, an ultra-modern urban laboratory under construction by students there to learn the principles and methods of ecological architecture.
• Journey through the stark and beautiful Navajo Reservation en route to the Grand Canyon, where you take in the grandeur of this American marvel from multiple viewpoints along the rim.
