Ymir is tiny and our historic hotels are filled with artists during the festival so there are NO rooms available for festival attendees.  We run a shuttle service from Nelson on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Watch for the detailed schedule and booking info to come soon! The festival site is 30 minutes from Nelson and 10 minutes from Salmo.
