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.
Experience the very best of Western Canada's coast and mountain heritage, from lush and exotic gardens, to wineries nestled amidst the Okanagan Valley, to the soaring Rocky Mountains. Thousand-year-old glaciers, majestic peaks, bountiful vineyards and Pacific Northwest culture come to life during interpreted field trips with local experts. Learn how diverse landscapes have shaped the people and culture of this region, beginning with the history of coastal British Columbia in Vancouver, then journeying into the interior to explore the stunning Okanagan Valley and ascending into the Rockies to visit Banff, Lake Louise and the Columbia Icefields.


• Explore Vancouver’s well-known neighborhoods with an author and historian for an offbeat insight into the city's urban design and ethnic neighborhoods.
• Journey the Icefields Parkway through the Canadian Rockies and venture onto the Athabasca Glacier by SnoCoach.
• Visit the Okanagan Valley, Canada’s premier wine country, to explore well-known vineyards and learn about winemaking while sampling award-winning labels.

Activity Notes
