  • How will our group travel between destinations?Expanded

    During the adventure, transportation is provided by a motor coach.

  • How strenuous are the activities?Expanded

    While this adventure is not considered physically strenuous, most days will include one or more hours of walking and Guests should feel comfortable spending time exploring the outdoors. While in Moab, the itinerary includes a gentle (Classes I-II) river rafting activity. The hike in Arches National Park consists of a steady uphill ascent with an approximate 500' elevation gain (and loss on the descent) on a surface of smooth stone, dirt and gravel. As an alternative to the hike, a motor coach excursion in Arches National Park is available. Temperatures may be hot and, at times, under exposed terrain, so wear cool clothing and a hat, and drink plenty of water. While nearly all of the trip's featured activities are gentle if examined separately, the full range of activities requires a moderate amount of stamina in order to get the most of your vacation.

  • What ages are appropriate for this adventure?Expanded

    While we welcome children ages 4 and up at the time of travel to discover the stories of the world with us, we recommend that children be at least 6 years old at the time of travel on our Arizona and Utah trip. This is based on several factors, such as high altitude at destination, duration of the vacation, extended hours of daily activity programming, potential for extreme temperatures in the summer months and amount of physical activity (e.g. hiking, rafting, off-road tours) involved. Because each child is different, call a Vacationista at (800) 543-0865† to discuss whether this is the right trip for your kids.
