Island Lake is located 80 air miles NW of Fort McMurray in the sub-Arctic region of the Birch Mountains accessible only by aircraft. Guests are flown from Fort McMurray by charter aircraft to and from the Lodge.
Wheeled planes are normally used to transport customers from Fort McMurray to and from Island Lake Lodge. However, if you wish to experience the adventure of a float plane, you may do so at an additional cost.
Weight is restricted to approximately 60 lbs per person. We suggest you use duffel bags instead of suitcases to cut down on weight. If you are overweight, you will be asked to downsize or you can upgrade to a larger aircraft at your expense.
