Amava Take: Are you looking for active ways to round out that bucket list? Road Scholar has unique options for you to keep moving while you learn, all over the world.

What do you say to hiking, biking and kayaking in Norway? Did we hear a “Ja?” Try experiencing unparalleled natural beauty on wheels water and land with Road Scholar’s signature educational touch. 

Have you always wanted to learn more about Guatemala and Belize? Get up close to Mayan artifacts, into virgin rainforests and a spectacular underwater world. This is a small-group trip, so it’s as socially engaging as it is invigorating.

Here’s a remarkable opportunity to make your own tracks at a crossroads of world culture. If about five hours a day of riding in a small group sounds like an amazing way to experience storied land this could be the trip for you. Road Scholar has scouted out the Elah Valley’s terebinth trees, the place where the Dead Sea Scrolls hid in 12 caves for nearly 2,000 years and a pilgrimage site for bird watchers. Get pedaling!
