Instructions for flying into CASTLEGAR AIRPORT, BC, CANADA (YCG)
Flights are available throughout the day on Air Canada via Vancouver or Calgary. Please arrange to land no later than 3:00pm. A complimentary shuttle will take you to our lodge via the beautiful town of Nelson, which you can explore if you have the time. Your return flight can be booked for any time of the day, as the shuttle will match the flight times.
Upon arrival at the small Castlegar airport, please look for the Queen City Shuttle parked directly out front and inform the driver (who will have your name) that you have arrived. Then you can collect your bags and/or use the washroom before the journey.
You will be taken to the Best Western Hotel on Baker Street in Nelson (a half-way point) and, depending on what time you’ve arrived, you’ll then have a chance to explore the beautiful town of Nelson. You can store your bags with the front desk.
At 5:00pm you will again be picked up by The Queen City Shuttle at the Best Western Hotel for the drive to the lodge. (Timing could vary depending on traffic delays.) Please be outside the Best Western Hotel at 5:00pm for the Queen City shuttle transport to our Lodge.
Please note: due to Castlegar’s small size and location in the mountains, it is subject to more frequent delays and cancellations.
