Getting Here by Plane

A small prop plane descends to land at the Minam River Lodge.

The most economical way to fly into the Lodge is to drive to Enterprise, Ore., and take a 20-minute scenic charter flight from Enterprise Municipal Airport. We can arrange flights for $225 per person each way ($325 on Sundays). Enterprise does not have scheduled airline services. Enterprise is about a six-hour drive from Portland or four hours from Boise. We also can arrange charter flights from several nearby regional airports.

The Walla Walla Regional Airport (KALW) in Washington is about a half-hour flight from the Lodge. Walla Walla, which has been called “Napa in blue jeans” for its burgeoning wine scene, is served by Alaska Airlines. Another option is the Tri-Cities Airport (KPSC) in Pasco, Wash., which is served by Alaska, Delta and United Express.

If you are flying through Portland International Airport (PDX) and don’t feel like driving to Enterprise, Boutique Air offers flights to Eastern Oregon Regional Airport (KPDT) in Pendleton. A charter flight to the Lodge takes about 40 minutes.

Just email or call or text us at 503.758.5532 for help arranging charter flights. Luggage limit 50 lbs. per person. Additional luggage can be flown for $50 per bag (up to 50 lbs). Well-behaved dogs are welcome aboard for $50 each way.

For private pilots, please review our guide to Flying Into Minam River Lodge and take a look at our weather station and webcams for the latest conditions. We offer plane camping on the airstrip for $100 per night (includes use of property amenities).
