Travel to Canada by air (Bissett seaplane base departure):
Guests traveling to Canada by air and departing to Cobham River Lodge from Bissett must secure a rental car before arriving in Winnipeg. All major rental car companies are available at the Winnipeg International Airport, and several transportation companies provide service from Winnipeg International Airport to Bissett, Manitoba. We recommend the car rental option once you arrive in Winnipeg, as the car rental allows you to enjoy Winnipeg and stop at your leisure as you make your way to Bissett, Manitoba.
Bissett hotel options are limited. Pine Falls, Manitoba, offers the Papertown Inn, which is a 1-hour 15-minute drive (118 KM) to the Bissett seaplane base. If you seek even more action the night before your Bissett departure, South Beach Hotel and Casino is also a favorite of past Cobham River Lodge guests. South Beach Hotel and Casino is a 2-hour drive (165 KM) to the Bissett seaplane base.
