Travel To The Lodge
There are many ways to get to the lodge. Often, guests consider coming a couple days before or after their retreat to explore our beautiful town of Nelson, and/or the other wonderful natural places in British Columbia that are just a drive away, such as; Fernie, Golden, and Banff National Park—one of the most stunning landscapes on earth!
To support getting to the lodge, we offer a free shuttle from the two closest airports: Spokane, WA (GEG), and Castlegar, BC (YCG). To maintain program timing, our shuttles operate at specific times only—if your flight is delayed, missed, or cancelled beyond the shuttle departure time, arrival to the lodge is your responsibility. Note: car rentals are available from Spokane and taxis are available from Castlegar.
The Spokane shuttle departs the airport at 1:00p sharp on the Saturday of your start date. We recommend flights that arrive before 12:00p, as the shuttle is unable to wait for delayed flights.
The shuttle returns to the airport the following Saturday by 12:00p, so flights departing after 1:00p work well.
The Spokane airport shuttle is approximately 4-5 hours with the border crossing.
Our Castlegar (YCG) shuttle services all flights arriving and departing between 10:00a and 3:00p. Castlegar is only 75 minutes from our lodge, but is a small regional airport that is more prone to delays and cancellations. If arriving into Castlegar, please note you will first be transported into the lovely town of Nelson, where you can walk around the shops and restaurants (view our Guide To A Saturday In Nelson), and then at 4:00p (once we have fully cleaned and sanitized every room) you will re-board the shuttle and drive out to the lodge.
If you are driving or renting a car, check-in time for the lodge is between 5:00-6:00p. Please see the lodge address above.
