6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.
The Ojibwe called it gichigami, or “great sea.” The French called it le lac supérieur. Today, we call it Lake Superior, and its history and stories of those who have traveled its waters are vast. Sample the region’s colorful past by learning about the fur trade, Native Americans, lighthouse keepers, musicians and artists. Choose your learning adventure by season, as you enjoy a spring field trip to witness Minnesota’s tallest waterfall in Grand Portage State Park, or take part in an autumn outing to explore the quaint town of Grand Marais.


Highlights

• Discover the vastness of the Great Lakes fur trade, learning the roles of the voyageurs and other players in this significant enterprise.
• Strengthen your mind and body with educational walking forays, and daily sessions that include tai chi and yoga.
• Gain appreciation for the region’s plant and animal life through lectures and walks in Judge C. Magney State Park.

Activity Notes

Walking up to three miles over packed earth or rocky terrain; long staircase on one optional hike; no elevators.

Coordinated by Vermilion Community College.
