You have registered for the ride of your life! Now leave the rest to us.

UNL Outdoor Adventures’ Hassle-Free Tent Service allows you more time to enjoy the tour and less time dealing with the “chores” – like setting up your tent, transporting your gear and remembering to bring that much-needed coffee. Each day you arrive at your designated campsite to find your luggage carefully placed inside your tent. Relax in a camp chair and wash the day away with a fresh towel. Enjoy a cup of delicious Cultiva french-pressed coffee before going back on tour.

Tent Service will begin on the afternoon of June 16 and continue until the end of the tour the morning of June 21, 2020.

Please join us in 2020!
