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.

From Canada/US

Check the following for flights to Vancouver and/or Kamloops. Kelowna is another option but is approx. a 2 hour drive to the lodge.
Air Canada

Westjet
Alaska Air

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.
* If you’re flying into Vancouver it is a stunning 4.5 hr drive to Quaaout Lodge.
* If you’re flying into Kamloops it is only a 1hr drive (also very pretty).
