Active travel with alumni UBC
In recent years, hundreds of UBC alumni have gone beyond the bucket list and explored the world as part of the alumni UBC Travel Club. With the program growing every year, we’re always working to find new and exciting experiences to offer our alumni travelers.

Here are a few of the active travel experiences we’re thinking about for 2019-20 (with estimated costs listed).
