Getting There (and Back)

Transportation

The nearest international airport is in Comox. There is also a local flight to Campbell River. International travellers will need to clear customs and immigration when arriving from foreign countries. All visitors to Canada require a passport.

Accommodations

You will need accommodation and meals for the night before the hike (including breakfast on the morning of departure). Reservations need to be made well in advance. Hikers return on Friday afternoon and, depending on personal travel arrangements, may also need a hotel room for this night.

See more details on the Staying There page.
