Winter trails are marked to Kipnuk (38 miles) and Kongiganak (11.1 miles). There are no docking facilities in the village, but there is a state-owned, public-use seaplane base (the Kwigillingok Seaplane Base) located in the Kwigillingok River. No services of any type are provided at the base, but there is a beaching area on the river bank adjacent to the Village. There is a state-owned public-use airport (Kwigillingok Airport) with a gravel airstrip. Improvements are currently underway for this airport to create a gravel runway, taxiway, apron, airport lighting system, and two single bay snow removal equipment buildings.
