Most Popular

Scotland Highlands

Take a trip to Scotland on an international tour for seniors, one of Road Scholar’s most popular tours! Spend 11 days discovering the legacy and natural wonders of the Scottish Highlands during a memorable stay at the Aigas Field Centre — the historic Highland home of naturalist Sir John Lister-Kaye, one of Scotland’s premier naturalists. 

Among sleepy green glens are the ancient castles of the Highlands. Learn about the history of Scottish clans and meet the people who inhabit this picture-perfect land, from Aigas to the Black Isle. Trace Highland history from the Bronze Age to the present day during field trips to Clava Cairns, Cawdor Castle, the Caledonian Forest and the Black Isle.

On Safari

The Best of Kenya and Tanzania on Safari

Take this very special Road Scholar safari on a micro group program with 12 or fewer participants on a 15-day safari to the African countries of Kenya and Tanzania. Every participant has a window seat in one of the two safari vans with optimum views of the wildlife. 

This international tour for seniors and younger adults follows the yearly migration route, capturing different stages of the migration throughout the year. Discover great national parks and rarely explored reserves as you search for big cats, elephants, rhinos, zebras, and more.

Trace the migratory path north through the remote Serengeti, an area rarely visited by outsiders, and cross into Kenya’s Maasai Mara reserve to search for the elusive leopard. 

Small Ship

Croatia Voyage by Yacht

On this 13-day journey to Croatia and Montenegro, you’ll learn about Roman monuments, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, national parks and idyllic villages nestled above the waters of the Dalmatian Coast.

Step aboard your privately chartered motor cruiser for an adventure through the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea with over 1,000 islands scattered along the coast of Croatia. This is definitely a trip best experienced by boat. 

Along the way, travelers will discover Diocletian’s Palace, built as a massive seaside retirement villa by the Roman emperor. In Montenegro, the group will spend an afternoon and night in Montenegro to explore the town of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
