What to Expect

Instruction on Alumni Trips is informal and relaxed. You might review and practice Leave No Trace skills, learn technical skills, or touch on other NOLS curriculum, all depending on interest. Trips are geared towards novices and only a few have pre-requisites, you will likely be in the company of both beginners and experienced travellers alike.

A unique aspect of Alumni Trips tends to be the wide age range on most trips. It is normal to have folks ranging from 20-70 on each of our trips and while this might seem intimidating, it is often praised as a highlight. Cross-generational learning can expose each person to new perspectives and help everyone expand their knowledge and understanding of other humans.
