7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
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.
Embark on an exploration of Toronto and Ottawa to learn about these world-class Canadian cities, the former the largest city in Canada and an internationally renowned center of art and culture, the latter the nation’s capital and a great repository of European and First Nations history. With cultural enthusiasts, authors and historians, discover not only the highlights of each city, but also the out-of-the-way corners only the locals know about, and move between the two cities in the comfort of train travel.


Highlights

• In Toronto’s Corktown, see how a 19th-century slum gave way to coveted residential and business property, and in Ottawa, experience the treasured Parliament Buildings.
• An architect takes you through the evolution of the Royal Ontario Museum, right up to the 2007 opening of the architecturally significant Michael Lee-Chin Crystal.
• With a curator, explore the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the country’s most popular museum.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles daily; stairs to access public transit on field trips.
