Our preferred method of payment is bank transfer. The Paypal commission saved will be put in good use for more delicious food, wines, snacks and refreshments :)

If you have any food allergy, we will try our best to accommodate dietary requirements. What food we serve will typically be dictated by the country and region, the event takes place. We will be happy to offer gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian options, if you let us know about your allergies or diet restrictions in advance.

Unfortunately due to the involved logistics & up front costs of the workshops, masterclasses and retreats we have a strict no refund and no cancellation policy regardless of circumstance. If you need to cancel we will do whatever is in our power to help you find a replacement for your spot. If we succeed, you will be refunded in full minus a service charge of $150 but only in the event that a replacement is found. We strongly recommend you to buy travel insurance and to be sure you can make it before you sign up. 

Sisterhood Retreats reserves the right to cancel or change a workshop, masterclass or retreat at any time due to insufficient registration numbers or illness, or if the quality of the trip or the safety of travellers is judged by Sisterhood Retreats in our sole discretion to be compromised. In such instances all registered guests may move to another workshop, masterclass or retreat with available space, or receive a refund. We will contact registered participants by email regarding any changes. If the workshop, masterclass or retreat, the guest decides to move to, is more expensive, the guest is to pay the difference in rates. Sisterhood Retreats is not responsible for any loss incurred on account of non-refundable or non-transferable air or travel tickets tickets. Travel insurance is highly recommended.

Our itineraries are designed to take advantage of the best light and the best photographic opportunities. Attendees should allow for flexibility due to changes in weather, traffic, cultural events, local governmental policy changes, or other logistical arrangements deemed necessary by Sif Orellana. The program can therefore be subject to variations, depending mainly on the weather. But don’t worry, there will always be a great plan B as exciting as plan A.

Please make sure you can make it and have read the descriptions throughly before you register.

All workshop/learning retreat attendees are strongly encouraged to carry trip cancellation insurance as well as medical emergency evacuation insurance. If you catch a really severe flue a few days before departure and you don't possess the strength to travel, you would lose your entire investment in the workshop/learning retreat if you didn’t have insurance. Many things happen in life that we don’t expect, and it’s nice to know you have a safety net to protect you, just in case.

Likewise, if you get injured in a remote place and you have emergency evacuation insurance, help will be on the way immediately and it won’t cost a fortune to transport you to a local hospital.
