HELI GLACIER PADDLE
Enjoy a thrilling helicopter ride through BC’s coastal mountain range, with jaw dropping views of towering mountain peaks, ancient glaciers and alpine meadows. The helicopter will take you to a remote glacial lake high in the mountains where you will have the opportunity to paddle an open kayak or stand-up paddleboard with a certified Paddle Canada guide. This is a once in a lifetime experience, as you navigate the turquoise waters between icebergs and capture stunning photos of the surrounding scenery.
Get a head-start on your hike with a helicopter ride above the tree line and into the alpine zone with a Certified Alpine Guide. Enjoy hiking amidst remote peaks and alpine meadows while gazing down upon the glistening waters of the Pacific. Guests may choose from a variety of half day or full day hiking excursions, from easy to advanced levels of difficulty.
HELI GLACIER WALK
A true “bucket list” adventure! Your Certified Alpine Guide will get you all suited up with crampons and gear. From Sonora, you’ll be whisked up and away through Bute Inlet, one of the largest fjords of the BC coast, home to 5000-9000ft tall mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls, and turquoise blue waters.
The helicopter lands at a remote locale where you will explore the alpine area and make your way out onto a formidable pristine glacier. This tour can be tailored to all ages, as our guides will prepare you for the adventure. Don’t forget your camera!
