This is a summer escape like no other. A guided Heli-Hiking will take you to a place to see what few others will. Amble amongst the giants of glaciers and soaring peaks, free from crowds, trails, and limitations. Experience true awe with exclusive access to an otherwise inaccessible landscape.
Each morning after breakfast, you will fly into the surrounding untamed beauty to various hiking locations (or Via Ferrata routes) depending on your preference or fitness. Your hikes will be led by certified guides. Highly trained guides know the terrain, are equipped with all the gear, and make sure every adventure is just this side of your comfort level. After your day hiking above deep valleys, gazing over brilliant white and blue glaciers and soaking up 360 degrees of alpine paradise, a short heli-flight back to the remote lodge allows you to end the day in true comfort. Be back in time for our famous tea-goody (apres-hike snacks), book in with one of our massage therapists or soak up the views from our hot tub.
However, if you prefer to kick back on a lawn chair with a cold margarita in a chilled glass, well, you can do exactly that. This is your vacation, and we want you to do what makes you happy. Hike every day or pick and choose as your legs see fit.
While there is Wi-Fi at the lodges (and phones if you need them), there is zero cell service out here. Meaning true disconnect time when you want it.
Day 1: Transfer from Banff / Lake Louise to the heli-pad. Here you will receive a helicopter safety briefing before flying to your remote lodge for the next few days. On arrival, you will be outfitted with all your required hiking gear for the next few days & after lunch, you will take flight for your first afternoon of hiking.
Day 2-3: Fuel up after a hearty breakfast and head out for your hiking adventure.
Day 4: Depart after your breakfast from our remote lodge to the heli-pad, where you will transfer back to Banff/Lake Louise or Calgary International Airport.
