  • I wouldn't recommend a special trip from Avalon just to visit the Airport in the Sky, the drive to and from here is much more interesting than the airfield itself. There is not much to see, just a sma...  more »

  • I'm not sure I'd want to fly into this airport, though I'm glad that I visited it as part of a tour led by a First Nation guide who calls himself "Bear." He knows a lot, so ask for him when you book y...  more »

  • Exhilarating landing, heart-dropping take offs. It's an ultra-short runway. You're gonna love it.
  • Airport at the top of the mountain, absolutely interesting place to land at, check AFD airport remarks for runway condition, first 1500ft runway upslope 1.7% for Rwy 22(preferred). Unable to see opposite end due to gradient. Landing fee $25.
  • Awesome buffalo burgers and is very friendly and relaxing. Great views too!
  • $25 landing fee, closes at sunset. Cute little shop/restaurant at the airport for drinks, ice cream, and buffalo burgers.
  • Hike here from Two Harbors every year...Great place to end a beautiful trek!
