Keefer Lake Lodge is the closest catskiing location to an international airport in Canada. The Lodge is accessible by car in Winter and Summer and you can drive right up to the front door all year-round. You should have a good all-wheel drive or 4×4 vehicle. During the winter months, all-season/winter tires are a legal requirement to travel on the highway to Keefer. For anyone unfamiliar with driving mountain roads, or for those who prefer to sit back and relax, we highly recommend using a shuttle service with our recommended partners Apres Tours, to get you to and from our lodge. 

If your catskiing with us, shuttles to and from Kelowna are included as part of your package.

Arriving by Car
