Program #2215RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
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.
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.
Combine biking with theater! During the day, explore the scenic, bluff country of southeast Minnesota on a converted rail bed from 1864. Bike experts lead this ride as you discover hidden gems of rural Minnesota. Round out your days by attending performances at a renowned local professional theater. Enjoy two seminars with theater staff including a backstage exploration, and engage cast members in post-performance discussions.


Highlights

• Journey along the 60-mile trail following the Root River, hailed as one of the finest rails-to-trails in the country.
• Explore Lanesboro's rich history and culture by van with narration by a knowledgeable local docent.
• Attend two performances at a local professional theater and enjoy an opportunity to talk informally with cast members.

Activity Notes

Must be able to bike 25 miles a day on relatively flat terrain. Quality 21-speed hybrid/cross style bikes are provided, but you may bring your own bicycle if desired.
