Program #21360RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
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.
Led by expert naturalists and historians, participants will learn about the qualities that make the Adirondack Park unique: specifically, the interesting mix of public and private lands that comprise the largest park of any kind in the Lower 48. Combining paddles, hikes, lectures and a trip to the world-class Adirondack Museum, students will retrace parts of the route taken by visitors to the region, and in so doing, enjoy the same connection with the natural environment that drew the Gilded Age elite here starting more than a century ago.


Highlights

• Guided by naturalists and historians, learn about the history and ecology of the central Adirondack region..
• Enjoy canoe paddles on Sagamore Lake and Raquette Lake to learn how earlier visitors reached Camp Sagamore. .
• Combine a visit to the Adirondack Musuem with a hike to Castle Rock to see why the Adirondacks are the origin of the American "vacation."
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
