Visit Anchorage is extending a warm welcome to all 2016 ATWS delegates to explore Anchorage and the surrounding Southcentral Alaska area on a Day of Adventure. Each Day of Adventure is free of charge for all registered Summit delegates and includes transportation, adventure activity, equipment (if needed) and lunch. All adventures depart and return from the Dena’ina Convention Center on Monday, September 19th – please check departing times. Day of Adventures are on a first-come, first-served basis – no waitlist – and subject to change. Please note, the weather in Anchorage varies that time of year, so all DOA’s are weather dependent. One adventure per registered delegate only. You will need your ticket number to complete the DOA registration which was emailed (click here for screenshot of email) to you after registration was completed.
Guests may attend select DOA’s at a discounted rate of $50USD. Guests need to register (please use your ticket number for both you and your guest’s registration), then contact Jara Haas with Visit Anchorage to secure payment.
