Program #21344RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Challenging
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
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.
Explore by river, creek and canal a beautiful region rich in water, wildlife and Southern culture. Drift down blackwater rivers draped in Spanish moss as birds flit from cypress to tupelo and turtles sun on fallen trees. Observe the changes in flora and fauna as you paddle down creeks until freshwater becomes salt and egrets soar over the marsh grass. Kayak through historic rice canals and watch history unfurl before you.


Highlights

• Go deep into salt marshes and blackwater rivers as you test your endurance and try out new paddle strokes taught by expert instructors.
• Hear echoes of the past as you paddle through abandoned rice fields and canals, mute testaments to days gone by, and rich with wildlife.
• Enjoy contemporary twists on authentic Southern cuisine: like Lowcountry Boil, Chicken Bog, Hoppin' John, and homemade desserts!
