At a Glance

Nearly 15,000 years ago, the last of the great glaciers retreated, leaving us the Great Lakes — Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario. These vast bodies of water contain more than one-fifth of the planet’s fresh surface water. On a small ship exclusively chartered by Road Scholar, voyage to all five Great Lakes, discovering pristine natural beauty and learning the colorful stories of the people who’ve sailed and worked these waterways.
Activity Level
On Your Feet
Walking up to one mile per day; some uneven and hilly terrain. Mobility is essential, as small boats are sometimes used for disembarkation and re-embarkation.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Sail all five Great Lakes and storied waterways like the Soo Locks and Welland Canal on an exclusively chartered ship.
  • Discover Mackinac Island, a Victorian-era haven where cars are forbidden and horse-drawn carriages rule the roads.
  • Spend one night in Chicago and one night in Toronto, exploring the best of both cities on expert-led excursions.
