Day 1: Banff to Cariboos Lodge

Make your own way to the Brewster Transportation Center (Banff Bus Depot) for the journey toward the Cariboos, making a quick stop in Jasper to pick up additional guests.

We arrive at the helipad for the quick, exhilarating flight to Cariboos Lodge. Before settling into our rooms, we'll be outfitted with all the necessary hiking gear, get acquainted with helicopter safety procedures. There will be time to grab a drink at the bar, enjoy a massage or soak in the hot tub! We enjoy our first family style dinner tonight.

Overnight at Cariboos Lodge.

 

Day 2: Full day of Heli-hiking

For those who want a warm up, there is a morning stretch class before the buffet breakfast. We then board our helicopter for a flight to your starting point for the days hiking.

Each group of hikers, accompanied by a guide, spends the day exploring the immense variety of landscapes in the Cariboos, a winsome sub-range of the Columbias. The region abounds with distinctive glaciers, turquoise lakes and airy mountain ridges. And everywhere, from every vantage point, vast, heart-stirring views.

We'll enjoy a picnic lunch (or, on special days, a grand high mountain barbecue) amidst stunning, utterly unspoiled scenery. After a memorable day, we fly back to the lodge, where snacks, beverages, a good book, or the sauna and restful outdoor whirlpool await. One of the charms of family-style dining is getting to know our fellow guests as we savor the chef's creation of the evening.
