Travel Information

  • Most travellers from the midwestern U.S. travel to our headquarters in Atikokan by road, crossing the border at International Falls, Minnesota, and then travelling 90 miles on Highway 11 to Atikokan. Visitors from elsewhere in the U.S. often fly to either Minneapolis or International Falls and then rent a car for the rest of the trip to Atikokan. European travellers fly through Toronto to Thunder Bay, Ontario and then rent a car for the final 120-mile trip to Atikokan.
