The Anchorage Walkabout Town Bed and Breakfast has been hosting NOLS participants for 20 years. The NOLS program, in Alaska, recommends our Bed and Breakfast because they are familiar with the personal care we show each participant.
We provide a ride, to the train station to meet the bus at 7am, for NOLS participants on the morning of their departure. We prepare a delicious breakfast bag so the NOLS participant can, eat at their leisure, as they ride the bus for an hour to reach the NOLS camp in Palmer.
We recommend that NOLS participants arrive, at our B&B, a day or two before their start date so they have time to experience Anchorage. We are an easy walk to all the tourist activities in downtown Anchorage.
NOLS participants sometimes think they want to stay in Anchorage after their NOLS experience but often they find themselves wanting to return home as quickly as possible after 30 days living in the wilds of Alaska.
Since we attract so many NOLS participants, there is normally a great opportunity to get acquainted with other NOLS participants at our B&B before leaving for the NOLS experience.
If you are willing to share a room with another NOLS person, of the same sex, you can mention that possibility when making reservations and you may be able to get a discount on your room.
