Hotels in Dryden

Introduction to Dryden

Located along the Trans Canada Highway, the town of Dryden sits midway between Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Thunder Bay, Ontario. Surrounded by lakes and a lush boreal forest, this is the go-to spot for travellers wanting a true wilderness experience, but with modern comforts thrown in. It's not unusual to catch the Aurora Borealis in the night sky, especially during the winter months. Skyscanner's online booking engine can help you find the cheapest rates on hotels, airfares and car rentals. What are you waiting for?

Things to Do in Dryden

Find Max the Moose along the Trans Canada Highway and you've found Dryden. The town's sculptured mascot stands 5.6 metres tall and is hard to miss. A handy tourist information center is nearby. Head to Dryden in mid-July and enjoy the annual Max the Most Fest, celebrating all things moose with food, local vendors and entertainment.

Learn about the history of the area at the Dryden and District Museum, housing exhibits on two floors with over 4,000 feet of space. Displays go as far back as the early 1900s, including artefacts from early pioneers and First Nations peoples. One item of note is the Dryden Buck, a hunting trophy forfeited to the Province of Ontario by an illegal hunter. Taken in 2003, the buck holds the Ontario record for antler spread and is surely missed by the perpetrator.

Dryden sits on an area that, in prehistoric times, was a huge inland sea. When the waters retreated, what was left behind was a collection of lakes. Blue Lake Provincial Park is one of those watersheds, offering biking, hiking, bird watching, fishing and boating using non-motorized watercraft. Aaron Provincial Park showcases Thunder Lake, with similar recreation options. Blue Lake is a 40-minute drive from Dryden, while Thunder Lake is only 15 minutes away.

Getting To and Around Dryden

Dryden Regional Airport (YHD) is roughly 10 kilometres north of the city. Air Canada, West Jet and Porter Airlines are the most used carriers, with many flights originating from Toronto. The single terminal is easy to navigate and offers car rentals and taxi services. This is a rural area so a car is your best bet, especially if you want to go exploring. It snows a lot in this part of Ontario. Consider renting an SUV or 4X4 if you're visiting during the winter. The taxi will run you about $27.00 CAD, excluding tip.

Hotels in Dryden

  • Hotels in Dryden tend to have a rustic flavour, which suitably matches the location. The Riverview Lodge is one of the local charmers, overlooking the Wabigoon River. Using the framework of the original lodge, built in 1910, the restored property features well appointed vintage-style rooms. Book one of the suites and your modern bathroom includes an in-room hot tub and fireplace. Dine at the onsite restaurant and then take home a bottle or two of their famed Hagen Salad Dressing. It's even sold online.
  • The Comfort Inn Dryden, Holiday Inn Express Dryden and Best Western Plus Dryden Hotel and Conference Centre are examples of name-brand properties available in town. The Best Western is a hit with business as well as recreational travellers. It's also pet-friendly, just let them know before arrival. The hotel likes to have special treats waiting for your four-legged family member.
