Program #17311RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
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.
Experience a week in a lovely log lodge on the shores of a world-famous trout fishery, the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River. Explore beautiful sites in Yellowstone and just west, hiking less-traveled paths among waterfalls to spot waterfowl. Discern the area’s history, geology and wildlife through trail-side talks by experts, while seeking moose, elk, sandhill cranes and trumpeter swans. Spend evenings watching incredible sunsets over the Henry’s Fork.

• Hike Idaho’s Harriman State Park, a refuge with terrific birding opportunities, and experience two waterfalls of national significance in the Mesa Falls Scenic Area.
• Climb an extinct volcano and climb sand dunes for amazing views of the Snake River Plain.
