Adventure by Air at Elk City Airport
Licensed pilots looking for small aircraft adventure flights combined with camping or rustic amenities are invited to experience Elk City, Idaho via it’s very own backcountry airstrip: Elk City Airport – S90.
Elk City Hotel will gladly assist guests with transportation from the airstrip to take advantage of clean comfortable lodging, a meal at the cafe next door, and further guidance to ensure you get connected with your backcountry outfitter, fishing guide, or just to learn about the history of Elk City, Idaho.
Just like Elk City itself, there’s nothing fancy about Elk City Airport. The grassy airstrip is maintained and available only during summer months, from approximately May to November (weather permitting).
For those pilots who are adventurous souls, looking to getaway from the hustle bustle, a fly-in to Elk City Airport offers the finest outdoor recreation, uncrowded solitude and nature loving opportunities you might find anywhere on the planet. Hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, photography, horseback riding or even wading through fields of wild flowers are savored activities in the heart of the Nez Perce National Forest.
