We believe learning is a lifelong pursuit that opens minds and enriches lives. We believe sharing new ideas, challenges, and experiences is rewarding in every season of life. Our participants come from every walk of life to learn together, to exchange ideas, and to explore the world.
The World is Our Classroom:
From Paris to New Orleans, Delhi to Council Bluffs, Elderhostel offers unique educational experiences infused with the spirit of camaraderie and adventure that enrich and enhance the lives of its participants. Our expert instructors share stimulating information through in-depth lectures, field trips, and cultural excursions. Lively discussions with faculty and fellow participants illuminate issues and broaden horizons.
A love of learning, with exceptional people in engaging environments, creates extraordinary experiences, which is what Elderhostel has been providing for over a quarter-century.
