Road Scholar
Program #20977RJ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
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.
From streamside habitats to forested mountains, come together as a family for a week of exploring the wild wonders of Yellowstone National Park. Enjoy adventures and hands-on explorations within the largest, nearly intact temperate ecosystem on earth, where plants, animal, bugs, fish, water, geology, habitat and weather patterns work together to make the whole.


Highlights

• Experience riparian habitat and geology while rafting the mighty Yellowstone River outside the park and then make camp for a night under star-filled skies.
• Yellowstone's volcano is revealed through thermal basin, canyon, forest and foothill hikes, and you examine mud pots, fumaroles, geysers and hot springs and search for wildlife in their native habitat.
• The creak of saddle leather and hoof beats on the trail punctuate trailside discoveries in the high country, followed by an authentic cowboy cookout and campfire.
