Wilderness Air Escapes

Why You'll Love It

Fly in to a remote wilderness outpost cabin with Wilderness Air Escapes for some of the best freshwater sportfishing in the world. Fish for walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, muskie and trout. Our fleet of aircraft includes 2 deHavilland Otters, 1 deHavilland Beavers, and 1 Cessna 185. We will fly you into one of 12 remote cottages.

We are easily accessible by major airlines and are located close to major centers, so you'll have no problems getting here. You can fly into Winnipeg, MB or International Falls, MN. We will arrange a floatplane or ground transportation to Wilderness Air from the airport at an additional cost.

Key Features

  • Cabin Rentals (Housekeeping): Our fly-in outpost cabins and amenities set the scene and provide everything you need to create unforgettable memories.
  • Outpost: Stay in one of our deluxe outpost cabins, and get a premium view of some of the most beautiful scenery around! Fish or hunt at one of our remote fly-in outposts.
  • Walleye: If you’re looking for a quintessential Canadian fishing experience, look no further than our walleye outpost camps at Devlin Lake, Pilot Lake, Portal Lake and Wasa Lake.
  • Northern Pike: If northern pike is your game, we recommend our outposts at Pilot Lake, Sup Lake and O-Nee-Gum Lake. You could also fly-in to Wasa Lake, Solitary Lake, Portal Lake or Confusion Lake.
  • Lake Trout: There’s just something about trout fishing and, at our fly-in outpost camp at Confusion Lake, it’s truly transcendent. Accessible only by plane, these exclusive cold waters, at 40 to 52 degrees Fahrenheit, are exactly the type favoured by lake trout.
  • Muskie: There’s no better place on the planet for muskie fishing! We recommend our deluxe outpost cabin on Confusion Lake.
  • Smallmouth Bass: If you’re looking for a trophy experience, we recommend our Campfire Lake, Onee-gum Lake and Crooked Lake outposts, which offer the shoreline rocks and points and clear deep water with little vegetation that “smallies” love.
  • Black Bear: Our Spring bear hunts nclude a fully equipped outpost cabin, round-trip air transport to and from the outpost camp from our air base in Vermilion Bay, check flights, bear tags, baited site for bow or rifle, extra bait, boat, motor, gas and canoe.
  • Moose: If you’re looking for the quintessential Canadian expedition, consider a Wilderness Air Escapes moose hunt. We offer unguided and guided moose hunts in WMU1.
  • American Plan Lodge: Experience the best of both worlds. Have your own personal chef at your outpost camp! Contact us for details.
