Getting HereSiwash is accessible by float plane, private jet, helicopter and by four-wheel drive SUV. During the summer months, cars can make the trip easily too. Airport transfers to/from Kamloops Regional (YKA) and Williams Lake Regional Airport (YWL) are included in our Signature Ranch Experience. We are happy to coordinate travel arrangements for our guests. Please contact us for details.
International FlightsVancouver International Airport (YVR) is the closest to the ranch in Canada. Another option for international flights, especially for those who want to tour the Rockies on the way to the ranch, is Alberta —Calgary International Airport (YYC). The closest in the U.S.A. is Seattle International Airport (SEA).
Regional FlightsA commercial flight connection to one of our two Regional Airports, Kamloops (YKA) or Williams Lake (YWL) will get you even closer to the ranch. It is a gorgeous drive from both airports through cowboy country to the ranch—just over two hours from Kamloops, and only one-hour-and-forty-five minutes from Williams Lake.
Air Canada has several 50-minute flights daily from Vancouver to Kamloops, or from Calgary to Kamloops, and Pacific Coastal services Williams Lake with a one-hour mid-day flight. The ranch provides chauffeur service, or you can rent a vehicle for pick-up at either airport
Float Plane CharterFor guests who wish to fly directly to the ranch from Vancouver, we will arrange a private float plane charter. We work with a couple of very reputable companies that have impeccable safety records, comfy planes and professional bush pilots who will narrate your scenic journey.
Depending on the size of group, the plane will be a DeHavilland Beaver for 2-4 passengers + luggage (pictured at right), a Turbo Beaver for 5-7 passengers, or a Cessna Caravan for 7-9 passengers + luggage (pictured above).
Flying time from the float plane river terminal at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to the ranch is approximately one hour to an hour-and-a-half non-stop. A truly adventurous start to your ranch experience, it's absolutely spectacular soaring over the Coast Mountain range and wilds of BC. It's best to schedule a mid-day to early afternoon flight and we are happy to make these arrangements for you.
Private Jets and Helicopter CharterThere is a paved, maintained airstrip plenty long enough for small jets, located 45 minutes drive from the ranch. Airport code is ZMH. Ranch chauffeur can meet you there. Private helicopter charter is available from anywhere in BC. We are happy to coordinate flight details.
