See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. 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.
Take an alpine hiking adventure challenge as big as the Rockies in the helicopter-accessible wilds of British Columbia. Expose yourself to natural wonders and human sagas with local experts at the Canadian Rockies’ Amiskwi Pass, Crystal Ridge, the Mummery Prospect and Continental Divide. Gain insight into alpine ecology, sustainable lodging, glaciology, and the fate of alpine environments. Replenish after hikes around the wood stove, in the sauna, or stargazing amid the wondrous setting.


• Hike beside alpine lakes and meandering creeks and wildflower-filled meadows.
• Experience alpine hiking right outside your door in an intimate, small group in remote stretches of untouched wilderness.
• Study geology, the adaptations of flora and fauna, and relive local history with lively trailside discussions.

Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Activity Notes

Hikes up to five-ten miles over varied, uneven terrain, gains of 500-2,100 feet. Elevations of 6,900-9,000 feet.
