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.
Join us to examine the fascinating “Niagara” region of Western New York from one of the world’s iconic natural wonders, the majestic Niagara Falls, to the area’s role in a moving chapter in American history, the Underground Railroad. Awaken all of your senses as you explore this beautiful and historic region.


• Take an expert-led boat ride on the Maid of the Mist. Observe scenic sites on both sides of the U.S.-Canada border with insights into the geology, hydropower and Native American heritage of the area.
