Trip description:

Outdoor Adventures is partnering with the Alaska Department of Fish & Game to provide this unique experience!  Depending on conditions, snowshoeing or hiking may be the best mode of transportation along the trails.  Migration is upon us this time of year, so it’s possible we’ll see ducks, geese, and maybe even swans and cranes.


Things to bring:

  • Daypack- small backpack to carry all of your gear for the day
  • Warm (non-cotton) clothes- dress in layers so you can adjust your temperature throughout the day.
  • Snowshoes
  • Boots or trail shoes for hiking with sturdy soles. Prepare for snow on the trails.
  • Light puffy coat
  • Shell jacket, warm hat and gloves
  • Snacks
  • One liter of water
  • Optional: Binoculars, camera

Bold items can be provided by OA for free as a part of the trip.



Refund Policy:

Payment in full is required to sign up for a trip.  A 100% refund is available if you notify the Outdoor Adventures Office of the cancellation more than two weeks (14 days) before the first day of the trip.  Cancellation one week to 3 days (13 to 3 days) before the trip entitles the participant to a 50% refund. No refund is provided if the participant does not show up or cancels 2 days prior to the trip.


Safety and Risk Management:

Due to the nature of outdoor travel there are certain inherent risks in all of Outdoor Adventures’ trips.  Acceptable risks include but are not limited to; hiking or skiing over rough uneven terrain with a backpack on, hiking or skiing up and down steep inclines with rough or icy surfaces, natural and manmade hazards (such as trees, rocks, power poles, fences, and equipment), other skiers on the trails, wildlife on the trails, having wet feet and clothing in the winter.  Conditions may include below freezing temperatures, snowstorms, rain, sleet and high winds.  Driving risks may include slick roads, poor visibility and wildlife.  Alaska is a wild place - you need to take ultimate responsibility for your own safety as only you can. For your protection we require you to carry health insurance.  You can purchase insurance for $2.60/day from the University (ask for details).
