Once you've decided to visit Sunset Country you have several options available for getting here and for travelling within the region after your arrival. You can fly direct from just about anywhere in the U.S. to the major centres of Winnipeg, MB or Thunder Bay, ON and connect on Bearskin regional flights into Sunset Country. Local Air Services are another great option for getting around the region. The combination of regular international flights with convenient regional connections means you can leave from just about anywhere in the continental U.S. in the early morning and be fishing on a wilderness lake in Northwest Ontario that evening - it doesn't get any better than that!
Once in Sunset Country, you can rent a car, or for large groups, charter a van or bus and then travel on paved highways to your destination. There are many businesses in Sunset country that will cater to your transportation needs. In many cases, the resort or lodge you'll be staying at will pick your group up at the airport and drive you to your destination.
For those travelling in their own RV or automobile, the major border access points from the U.S. are at International Falls, MN via US Highways 53 or 71, at Baudette, MN via Minnesota State Highway 11, and at Pigeon River via Minnesota State Highway 61. Call us or the lodge or hotel where you are staying and we can help you determine the best route from your location. You could also contact local travel agencies and have them book your flight and travel arrangements.
