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.
Known for its pristine forests and decadent local wineries, the Finger Lakes region offers much to be seen and savored. Join us for a unique hiking adventure that explores the gorges, hills and waterfalls of this scenic area, and stop to sample the flavors of some of New York’s finest vineyards. With expert naturalists and foresters, learn about the geologic wonders of local state parks — as well as the waterfalls in Watkins Glen and Ithaca — and hike on trails around Keuka, Cayuga and Seneca Lakes.


Highlights

• At a vineyard along Seneca Lake, learn about its grape harvest and savor some of its most popular wines.
• Learn about Iroquois culture during presentations and field trips to the Letchworth Museum and the home of Mary Jemison, the "white woman of Seneca."
• Hike along the famous gorge at Watkins Glen State Park and view the spectacular waterfalls of the lower Gorge.

Activity Notes

Hiking 4-6 miles per day on moderate to hilly terrain. Sag wagon offered at mid-point of each day's hike.
