Airports & Shuttle

Most of our guests travel to Nelson by flying into Spokane, WA, and taking the Baldface Luxury Shuttle or renting a car at the airport. If traveling within Canada, we recommend flying to Kelowna or Cranbrook and renting a car. Due to weather cancellations during the winter months, we don’t advise flying into Castlegar (which is the closest regional airport 25 minutes from Nelson). More Shuttle Info…
