Trip description:
Join us as we canoe the Tangle Lake system nestled in the Delta Mountains. Incredible scenery and fantastic wildlife
viewing are inevitable on this trip. Paddle during the day and enjoy dinner cooked on backpacking stoves and camping in
the evenings. Learn new canoe paddling skills or practice the ones you know and build new friendships that will make
your UAF experience even better! The weather can change quickly in this part of the state which makes proper clothing
and gear very important, so please follow our gear packing list closely. Trip costs include transportation, gas, food, trip
leaders, and equipment. *Itinerary subject to change*

Safety and Risk Tolerance:
Due to the nature of outdoor travel there are inherent risks in all of Outdoor Adventure’s trips. Acceptable risk include
paddling through lakes and rivers with swift water in a canoe equipped with a paddle and personal floatation device.
Weather conditions may include wind and rain. Driving risks may include poor visibility and wildlife. Participants should
be aware that they will get wet during this trip, appropriate clothing and foot wear will be reviewed in detail at the pre-trip
meeting. It is important to recognize that you are voluntarily participating in this activity. There are risks inherent in
outdoor pursuits, by choosing to participate, you agree that you appreciate and accept responsibility for these risks. We
do the best we can to create a safe environment, but 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). All info is subject to change due to safety, weather, current
conditions, etc.!
                  If you have any questions please contact us or visit our office in the Wood Center
