Safety and Risk Management:

Due to the nature of outdoor travel there are certain inherent risks in all of Outdoor Adventure‚Äôs trips.  Acceptable risks include but are not limited to; falling into the river, liquid water in below freezing temps, cold extremities (toes, fingers, nose and cheeks), wildlife encounters. Conditions may include rain, 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).
