Transportation and Accommodation

All meals during the workshop, lodging, and transportation to and from the lodge is included. You will be responsible for your flight to and from Anchorage Alaska and for your hotel in Anchorage. You are requested to arrive one day prior to the workshop so that the entire group can convene the afternoon of July 21st for departure. We have secured group rate rooms at an Anchorage hotel. Upon registration, you will download a PDF that includes the hotel information. Please call the hotel directly and reference the Art Wolfe workshop to make your reservation.

Activity Level

The activity level for this workshop is moderate with proposed field outings that may involve approximately 4 miles of hiking over uneven ground to the photographic location.  Please be aware of this before signing up.
