VEHICLE TRANSFERS BETWEEN AIRPORT AND LODGE

We use three different airports to transport guests from Vancouver to Tsylos. In the off season when passenger numbers are lower, we can use the small Chilko airport with a six passenger charter plane. In the peak season we are using an 18 passenger beech 1900. This aircraft requires a larger strip such as Anaheim Lake airport or Puntzi Airport. These airports are a 1.5-2 hour drive from the lodge. We pick you up at the airport and drive to the lodge in time for lunch.
