Trip suggestions for someone who can't walk far?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I (we are in our 50s) are trying to figure out a trip for next winter that would work well for our extended family—my father-in-law (86), my wife and me, and our two twentysomething children.

My father-in-law is a great traveler, but he really can’t walk for more than 0.5-1 miles per day, preferably in relatively small increments. We just got back from the Celebrity XPedition Galapagos trip, which worked well because they have 2 or 3 levels of intensity for all of the excursions (he generally stayed on the Zodiacs, and was able to see quite a few animals from there).

He is fine not doing everything, but I would not want to pick a trip where you can’t see much without walking.

Any good ideas?

Thanks very much,

Len
