ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.

• Admire granite monuments like El Capitan, Half Dome and Bridal Veil Falls as you learn how Pleistocene glaciers carved the wonders of the Yosemite Valley.
• Visit Yosemite’s high-country areas, cross the Sierra Nevada to Mono Lake and Owens Valley, and explore forbidding, dramatic, beautiful Death Valley.
