Directions to Wabakimi B&B / Outfitting & Floatplane Base
- Turn north onto Highway 527 from Highway 11/17 just east of Thunder Bay. Remember to fill your tank in Thunder Bay!
- Drive for approximately 2¾ hours. Watch out for logging trucks and wildlife along Highway 527. Posted speed limit is 80 km/hour (50 Mph)
- DO NOT turn down Obonga Lake Road when you see a sign for “Wabakimi Wilderness Lodge” – this is not the right place!
- You will see a few signs for our B&B along the way (all in the shape of a canoe with the Wabakimi Adventures logo on it), then a blue sign just before our turn-off onto Frontier Trail.
- Turn left onto Frontier Trail and take the left fork. Follow this straight to the B&B.
- If you arrive in the town of Armstrong then you have gone too far! We are located about 10KM (6 miles) south of town. There are signs for us on the way back too, so just turn around and head back.
