Photography and travel enthusiasts alike are invited to join Northwest College Photographic Communications on an eight-day excursion to Chile during spring break in March 2019.

The group will depart from Billings Logan International Airport, either Thursday, Feb. 28, or Friday, March 1, depending on the date tickets are purchased. Travelers will arrive in Santiago, Chile, and explore and photograph the city through multiple guided tours for the first two days of the trip. In addition to experiencing the city’s landscapes and culture, participants can also plan to photograph a variety of parades and activities during the annual Carnival festival.

Next, the group will fly to the southern tip of Chile to walk with the penguins at Magdalena Island. That same evening, travelers will spend the night in Punta Arenas near the island.

For the final two days of the trip, the group will fly back to Santiago to take a day trip to Viña Del Mar and a wine tour at Concha y Toro, one of the largest wine producers in Latin America.

In addition, for those who are interested, time will be allotted for travelers to meet and chat with former Northwest College international students from Chile.

Cost per person is $3,400, which includes airfare, hotels, tours and two meals each day of travel. Each traveler will be assigned a roommate; however, participants will have the option of upgrading to a single room for an additional $550.

For those interested in learning more about the trip, an informational meeting will be held on campus Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 6:30 p.m. in the Fagerberg Building, Room 41. The deadline to register is Thursday, Nov. 1.

In order to sign up for the trip, participants must register for the one or two-credit course. Those who register for the two-credit course will be included in the photography exhibition in April.

For further information, contact NWC Instructor of Photography Jen Litterer-Trevino at jen.litterer-trevino@nwc.edu or 307-754-6160.
