UVic's home for those who pursue self-propelled wilderness travel.

Mission

Faster, Higher, Stronger.

Description

The University of Victoria Outdoors Club (ODC) is a student-run club of outdoor enthusiasts. We enjoy hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, bike-touring, camping, paddling, rock-climbing, and all manners of self-propelled adventure.

We are excited to return to leading trips this term that will meet BC Provincial Health Orders and the updated UVIC communicable disease policy. If you are new to Victoria looking to explore all the island has to offer, or a local just looking to share some of your favorite spots with others connect with UVIC Outdoors club execs to learn more about what we are planning!

If you're interested in this, join our 2021/22 Facebook group!

Here's some of the planned activities:

  • Regular partner-searching threads for members to comment on and find hiking partners to go on physically distanced outings.
  • Lists with photos of our favourite places to go locally and up-island.
  • Hiking, backpacking, paddle boarding, ocean kayaking and more outdoor activities!
  • Social events where we chat about the stuff we've been up to lately or the things we can't wait to do

To keep up to date with what the club is up to, visit the Facebook page. Let's all get out there and enjoy this beautiful place we call home!
