What’s What: Where do you want to go? What do you want to experience? Get to know  Road Scholar! Not-for-profit Road Scholar inspires adults over 50 to learn, discover and travel, opening minds to new ideas and deepening understanding of the world’s peoples, places, cultures, history and environments. If enriching, socially engaging and thrilling educational experiences interest you, check out their astounding offerings, over 5,500 experiences, from detailed itineraries to less structured schedules with ample free time. What all Road Scholar experiences have in common is learning, and unique access to extraordinary people and places in the world. Road Scholar’s world class lectures, exceptional value, convenience and a cohort of lifelong learners await. 

Amava Take: Road Scholar has launched a social media campaign focused on recognizing women and the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. It’s the perfect time to celebrate empowerment and community on women-only learning adventures around the world! Together with a group of Road Scholar women, you can go on a rejuvenation retreat, focus on fitness, hike in Rocky Mountain National Park or participate in an art-intensive week working with glass, clay and steel. And that’s just the start. There’s even more to explore on these adventures just for women!

Need some rest and relaxation? Immerse yourself in restorative traditions as you practice gentle healing techniques, learn Qigong and Self-acupressure and discover the art of guided meditation for deep inner peace.

Are you a hiker? Join instructors and a small group of women to hike the varied landscapes of Rocky Mountain National Park, discovering alpine tundra, boulder fields, pristine mountain lakes and more!

Get your creative juices flowing! Blow, twist, hammer and mold during an introductory art week with other creative women. Learn ceramics, glassblowing and blacksmithing from instructors, and create your own keepsakes.
