Heli-hiking — 4 Days

You will be picked up early in the morning from your hotel in Banff or Lake Louise for the transfer to the helipad. You travel west, through two glorious national parks, due to arrive at the helipad for the first helicopter flight to the lodge. After a helicopter safety talk, guests climb in and soar up for an afternoon of getting acquainted with the mountains.

The first helicopter leaves at 9.00am the next day (each aircraft seats 11 guests and a guide), making the short but dramatic trip to the timberline. Divided into groups (8 to 11 people) according to ability, energy, and inclination, each group with its own guide will spend the morning roaming and hiking in breathtakingly beautiful, pristine mountain landscapes.

On the final day, the first helicopter leaves about 9.30am for the Bobbie Burns helipad, where you board a private coach for the drive back to Lake Louise, Banff or Calgary Airport.
