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.
Oregon is home to more covered bridges than any state west of the Mississippi and a collection of beautiful lighthouses that are an integral part of local maritime history. Based in the vineyards of the Willamette Valley, observe fine examples of wooden, steel and concrete bridges and compare their styles. With local experts, explore maritime history — trade, fishing and seafaring.


Highlights

• Journey along the stunning coast to see famous beacons, such as Yaquina Head Lighthouse and Tillamook Head Lighthouse.
• Discover the unique architectural style of the numerous covered bridges, the drawbridges in Portland and other bridges over the rivers.
• Enjoy local cuisine while voyaging onboard the Spirit of Portland, comparing the diverse construction of Willamette River bridges from the water.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile; some optional stairs.
