Getting Here

Whether it’s by plane, train, bus or automobile, there are many ways to travel to Kenora year-round to explore what Sunset Country has to offer.

By vehicle

Take Trans-Canada Highway 1 to drive to get here. We are approximately 200 kms east of Winnipeg and 500 kms northwest of Thunder Bay. If you are travelling from the south, Highway 71 connects to the Trans-Canada Highway just outside of city limits. To finally reach the City of Kenora, you will need to take the by-pass Highway 17A. The by-pass runs directly through Kenora where you can refuel and rest.

By Air

Kenora Airport is located 9 km northeast of Kenora and features the Lake of the Woods Museum artifacts and local art inside the award-winning new terminal. The major airline carrier operating out of the Kenora Airport is Bearskin Airlines.

If you’re looking to get into the heart of the wilderness, you’ll need to book a float plane. Book a day charter or a fly-in fishing experience with River Air or Walsten Outposts.

By bus

Travel from Kenora to Winnipeg and within Northwestern Ontario with Kasper Transportation or Ontario Northland.

By train

Via Rail Canada provides train service to the Kenora Area. The station is located in Redditt, Ontario which is 30 minutes from downtown Kenora. You will need to arrange your own transportation to and from Redditt.
