DirectionsShow MapHide Map
Base Camp is a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport , which costs under $15 US dollars. If you prefer to take the bus for $2 dollars, take the Route # 7 bus and exit at Northern Lights and Spenard. Walk 2 blocks North on Spenard by following the tall white windmill straight in front of you. Make a right on 26th Avenue and we are on the left. This is a five minute walk from the bus stop.
