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.
Join the most popular Road Scholar instructors for a week of fellowship, learning and fun in one of the most beautiful corners of the United States — Santa Fe, New Mexico. We’ve planned an amazing array of in-depth lectures, field trips and activities— plus a final night gala! Areas of study will cover the region’s history, art, culture, geology, and the area's natural wonders. There is something for everyone, as you make new friends and experience the best of Santa Fe!


• Immerse yourself in the stories and culture of the region’s many communities, studying Native American and Hispanic influences.
• Experience firsthand the treasures of New Mexico on expert-led field trips to Taos, Los Alamos, Bandelier National Monument, Native American pueblos and museums.
• Stay in luxurious lodgings right in the heart of Santa Fe’s historic district.
