Take a trip on a guided adventure.

Stoke your wanderlust…it’s time for an adventure. On our guided trips, you'll find yourself learning and trying new things—from what you do (hands-on activities), to where you’ll go (roads less traveled) and to how you get around (think outside the bus). 

All trips are open to students, faculty, staff and all members of the Tucson community. Take advantage of early bird pricing. Miss the sign up date? There's still availability with a late fee applied.
