What to Bring:
Our weather can vary from hot to cold so you should be prepared for both, by dressing in layers. Insects are generally not a problem around our main camp or on the water. Upon confirmtion we will provide our guests with a complete suggetion list.
Overnight at the Float Plane Base:
Arrangements will be made to stay overnight in Missinipe (Otter Lake) so you are ready for the early morning fly-in to Oliver. There are top quality cabins, a restaurant/motel, and a campground at Missinipe. When returning home, you will not have to stay overnight since you will arrive back at Missinipe in the mid morning. Most guests who fly home on commercial carrier back via La Ronge and then Saskatoon usually make it home on the same day.
How to Fly to the Float Plane Base:
Fly to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, from all major Canadian and U.S. cities. Then transfer to Transwest Air (1-800-667-9356 or 1-306-665-2370) for a short flight up to La Ronge.
A shuttle van will then pick you up at the La Ronge airport and transport you to Osprey Wings' floatplane base in Missinipe. As an alternate, we can assist you in renting a vehicle, or be chauffeured, from Saskatoon to the float plane base, if you choose. Our travel agents can help you make the best arrangements.
For private pilots, La Ronge is a major northern airport center where you can refuel and/or park your plane. Missinipe, where the float plane base is located, also has a 3000 foot gravel airstrip and safe parking.
