How to Get There
Quick and convenient – Smooth connection to the Far North.
Our point of departure is Winnipeg, Manitoba. Winnipeg is easily accessed with over a dozen flights a day with Delta, WestJet, United, and Air Canada. We suggest you arrive by mid-afternoon the day before your trip. Travel arrangements can be made with our recommended agents at TravelEx (800-882-0499).
How It Works.
Overnight accommodations are at the Lakeview Trademark by Wyndham (formerly Four Point by Sheraton) across the street from the Winnipeg Airport. You may call directly to make reservations under Gangler’s (204-775-5222 ext. 7124). The Trademark by Wyndham is located a short walk or bus ride from the main terminal. Hotel pickup service is available. Usually only one overnight layover is required on the trip North. Guests arriving in Winnipeg will be met by our expediter. Simply pack an overnight bag and our expediters will take the rest of the gear to the charter plane the next morning – no lugging that bulky baggage around! They can even advise on the current Winnipeg hotspots and dining.
Early the next morning, our expediters will transport you to the charter aircraft for your flight to the lodge. Charter flights are located at the opposite end of the airport and usually depart 5:30 AM. Due to our far Northern location, a short fuel stop in Thompson, MB is usually required. Planes will arrive at the lodge around 9 AM. On your return, all guests should depart the lodge by 10:30 AM and be back in Winnipeg by 2 PM for flights home later that day. Do not book return flights until 2:45 PM or later.
Departing the aircraft you will be greeted warmly. Once off the plane, you can walk the path to the lodge or if you need assistance we can transport you there by golf cart or ATV. At the lodge there will be hot coffee and some small breakfast items like muffins, fruit or yogurt depending on the chefs selection for that day. Main lodge guests will enjoy a hearty brunch before going fishing.
Charter aircraft heading to Gangler’s will be able to utilize our new certified GPS approach. This addition enables aircraft to land safely at lower weather limits and better ensures guests making important air connections. Gangler’s is one of the few in Northern Canada with this important feature. A costly procedure, part of our dedication to your full satisfaction.
