4 Days | 3 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy

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.
In the heart of the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York, experience the history and mystery of art glass as you delve into the world-renowned collections of the Corning Museum of Glass.
