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.
The escarpment of the Colorado Plateau includes some of our continent’s most beautiful canyons. Explore the geology, ecology and human heritage of two spectacular canyon landscapes: Sedona’s Oak Creek Canyon and the incomparable Grand Canyon. Visit Montezuma Castle National Monument, a 5-story cliff dwelling. Hear from a member of the little-known Hualapai tribe.


Highlights

• In Sedona, enjoy a half-day rail journey through the scenic Verde River Canyon, learn about and try to spot resident bald eagles, raptors, blue herons, deer, fox, coyote and javelina.
• In Peach Springs and western Grand Canyon, go off-the-beaten path on the Hualapai Indian Reservation down the only road to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
• At Grand Canyon National Park, explore the South Rim’s dramatic viewpoints and trails with regional experts.

Date Notes
9/7/2014
Starting in fall 2014, this program will be replacing the Verde Canyon Train trip with a jeep excursion to an off-the-beaten-path location of high scenic value. "Pink Jeep" trips are consistently rated the number one visitor activity in Sedona. Our excursion will not be one of their "high adventure" trips, but there will be moderate jostling as the jeep navigates dirt roads, sandy canyons, and/or slick rock.9/22/2014
