Trip Types

Join us on an adventure! Our student leaders will take you on an experience unlike any other.

"Making connections with other people of varying ages and experiences during Voyages helped me get a head start in having strong relationships, and to feel more confident and secure in my journey at Pacific."
— Surf Voyage participant, '21









Attention: Voyages headquarters (the Milky Way building) is being remodeled and unanticipated delays in construction are affecting our ability to operate at full capacity. In result, we are offering a limited number of Voyage trips in 2023.

When Voyage registration reaches capacity, we still encourage you to sign-up and you'll be placed on a waitlist. You will be contacted throughout the summer if space becomes available.

Voyage 2023 Trips Offered: Backpacking, Rafting, and Local Adventure.

From the rapids of the Deschutes River to the trees of the Pinchot-Gifford Forest, you will enjoy connecting with fellow students and professors in this unique experience. All Voyage trips accommodate any skill level, whether beginner or advanced.

To ensure that everyone experiences an amazing Voyage, we ask that all Voyage participants comply with this Participant Code of Conduct.

Wilderness Voyages

Wilderness Voyages connect you with classmates while enjoying some of the most incredible backcountry scenery the Northwest has to offer. Under the mentorship of trained student leaders, you will pitch your own tent, use a map and compass, get away from the distractions of the city, and cook hearty, well-earned backcountry meals. With each activity we teach, you will gain the technical skills necessary to travel safely, build confidence, and most importantly have a blast!

Outdoor Voyages

Outdoor Voyages are designed to connect you with classmates while on adventures that are located a little closer to civilization than our Wilderness Voyages. If you love the idea of getting outdoors with your new classmates, but want a less rugged adventure — these are the trips for you! Your student leaders will show you all of the necessary skills you need to know to ensure a wonderful experience. 

Note: Voyage participants must meet the essential functions required for each activity with or without reasonable accommodation. If you have any questions about the essential functions of participation, please see our Essential Eligibility Criteria.
