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.
Experience the grandeur of Alaska on a round-trip voyage from San Francisco. Navigate the Inside Passage, stand in awe of massive glaciers and examine their environmental importance, search for majestic wildlife like bald eagles and grizzly bears and delve into fascinating topics like Alaskan Native culture and the Klondike Gold Rush. Plus, enjoy a day in charming Victoria.


• Sail into the spectacular Tracy Arm fjord, where icebergs bob beneath soaring granite cliffs and where you might witness a glacier calving.
• On an expert-led wildlife viewing excursion search for bald eagles, Alaskan grizzly bears, spawning salmon and mountain goats.
• Learn about Alaska’s marine life at a salmon hatchery and top-notch aquariums and touch tanks.
