Travel Plans and Hotel Partners

Sled Island wants to make it easy as possible for you and your friends to organize travel plans and find the best possible deal on a place to stay in Calgary during the festival from June 19 -22. Because of that we've put together these two pages, Getting Here and Accommodations to help you out.

There's a few different options on how to get here, first off, road trips are always one of the best ways to experience summer. Open highways, pals all around and saving money on gas. We've taken the liberty to create this ride share forum for anyone looking to connect with others hitting the road to Calgary for the festival. There are also several options to reach the city on the bus from services like Greyhound or Red Arrow. If you're looking to fly, now is the time to book! Whether you are flying within North America (American Airlines, Delta, United), within Canada (Westjet, Air Canada) or from further away, all major airlines fly into the YYC Calgary International Airport.

Once you get here you'll need a place to stay!
