TRiP is UF’s Travel & Recreation Program. They have a highly trained and certified staff of TRiP Leaders eager to facilitate unforgettable experiences! Safety and fun are our top priorities. Students who participate in trips often report that it was one of their most memorable experiences in college!

Weeknight Adventure: Make the most of your week with moonlit paddles, SUP Yoga, hiking and painting, and more!

Day Adventures: Don’t want to commit to an overnight? Head out for a day to do some surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking or canoeing. All activities are within a 2 hour drive and give you the opportunity to explore Florida’s beautiful waterways.

Overnight Adventures: From local camping adventures to the mountains and valleys of North Carolina, take a weekend to experience nature to the fullest. Breathtaking mountain views, new friends, and unforgettable memories await you.


TRiPs are open to ALL experience levels. No previous experience is necessary. You don’t have to be “outdoorsy” to enjoy nature.

Price Includes:

Camping/lodging, outdoor equipment, highly trained and certified TRiP Leaders, and meals (on Overnight Wilderness Trips) are all included in the price of the trip.
