See our Small Group programs.
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 Canada’s smallest province to the heart of “New Scotland” and onto Cape Breton Island, journey the red clay roads, coastal byways and historic city streets that combine to create the unique Maritime character. Discover the rich Celtic and Acadian history and culture of Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. Experience the French joie de vivre and Scottish pride of Nova Scotia and be charmed by Islanders who make their living from the land and sea.


Highlights

• Witness Cheticamp’s famous rug hookers in action and enjoy local music at a “ceilidh.”

• View 300 million-year-old fossils at the Bay of Fundy, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
