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.
Prepare yourself for an adventure of monumental proportions — a journey to six national parks in two American states and two Canadian provinces. The Rocky Mountain colossus must be seen to be appreciated, and your journey will take you to Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Glacier, Waterton, Banff and Jasper national parks. Experience famous waypoints like Jackson Hole, Old Faithful Geyser, Mammoth Hot Springs and Lake Louise as you learn about the geology, history, flora and fauna of the Rocky Mountains.


Highlights

• Visit the massive Columbia Icefield and venture safely by “snowcoach” onto the surface of the Athabasca Glacier.
• Experience the “Crown of the Continent” via the Going-To-The-Sun Road as we traverse Logan Pass in magnificent Glacier National Park.
• In the Canadian parks, visit Fort Macleod where the Canadian Mounties came into being as the North West Mounted Police, as well as the beautiful Lake Louise in Bow Valley.

Activity Notes

This program includes activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city, on a National Park trail or boardwalk and standing in a museum for a few hours. Elevations up to 6,600 feet.
