Program #19886RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
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.
Enjoy the Oregon Shakespeare Festival from downtown Ashland, Oregon, a charming small town with a generous helping of big-city sophistication. This inviting town is now a hotspot for award-winning theatre, fine food, and wonderful wine. From your home at an exquisitely restored historic hotel, explore the lively Ashland culture alongside thrilling lectures and riveting performances at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Enhance your theatre experience with an exploration of the Ashland area and a visit to a local winery to sample some of the region's best vintages.


• Attend three performances at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and meet actors and company members who provide rich context for each play.
• Learn about an aspect of theatrical production ranging from costume or scene design to stage management and beyond.
• Top off your culinary experience with a seasonal, three-course meal and chef demonstration highlighting local ingredients from Southern Oregon.
