REMINDER for USA travel: if you are traveling to or through (even in transit) the friendly, foreign, US of A at any point on your trip to/from Canada you will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (sorta like a visa). This is good for 90 days from your date of entry and valid for trips within two years. “ESTAs” can be obtained online here – have your trip details and a credit card handy, allow 20 minutes to apply.
BY LAND – applies to all air travel as well
You may wish to car share if traveling in a group. We highly encourage you to take time to explore the region before or after the wedding events.

Don’t feel like driving? You can always take the BUS! Check Greyhound.ca for schedules and fares from Vancouver to Sorrento (if staying at the lodge or the hostel ask the driver to get off at “Squilax Hostel”).
