Heli-HikingA sublime adventure to remote mountain tops and unexplored beaches
Our heli-hiking adventures whisk us to some of the most jaw-dropping scenery on the planet. See remote mountain peaks, hidden valleys and unexplored beaches from the air and then land to explore in the company of an experienced guide.
Your adventure will begin at Farewell Harbour Lodge where you and your guide will greet your pilot, receive your safety briefing and jump aboard! Lifting off from the field adjacent to the lodge, you'll get a magnificent bird's eye view of the 30,000 acre Broughton Archipelago Marine Park that surrounds us. Your destination depends on your desires.
If you're up for a scenic alpine walk, we'll drop you and your guide off on one of the mainland fiord ridge-tops where you can spend a good part of the day on an easy hike, breathing in glacial fresh mountain air and trying to imagine if you've seen any scenery more spectacular in your life!
If remote beaches are more your thing, let us take you to some of our favourite spots curated from 30 years of exploring nearly every inch of the BC Coast. Although the water may not be as warm as the Seychelles, our beaches can be every bit as endlessly beautiful. Follow wolf and bear tracks as you spend the day walking the strand and watching the surf roll in.
If you just want time in the air to take in as much scenery as you can, let us wing you deep into the Coast Mountain Range to places that elite mountaineers and backcountry skiers dream about and gently alight on a millennia old glacier.
All of our heli trips are accompanied by a picnic lunch and a professional guide. A helicopter charter means the machine is yours for the day and includes up to 3 hours of flight time (depending on your group size) offering a huge variety of possibilities for adventures to suit any taste and ability. Our pilots are the best in the business and are extremely knowledgeable and safety conscious.
Please note we do not offer any wildlife viewing by helicopter although you may see wildlife on any of the ground portions of the tours.
