Heli-Hiking Banff National Park

Take the Scenic Way to the Canadian Rockies Backcountry Mountains: Heli Hiking

If you’re looking to get out into the real backcountry of the Canadian Rockies, one option — especially if you don’t have a lot of time to spare, or might not be physically capable of hiking up a mountain — is heli-hiking.

Heli-hiking in the Canadian Rockies

Like heli-skiing, heli-hiking lets you enjoy the fresh air and scenic alpine beauty of the Canadian Rockies in and around Banff National Park by scaling the mountains via helicopter. A typical heli-hike offered through Banff Travel, for example, offers a 15-minute scenic helicopter ride to a beautiful, wild area high above the Bow River Valley. From there, you’ll get three to four hours of hiking. These hikes are available to people of all ages and abilities; the pace and distance of the hike is tailored to what your group wants to do and is physically able to do.

Banff TravelYou can also book a 25-minute ride, which takes you over magnificent mountain ranges and drops you off on Mount Charles Stewart, where your the hike of a lifetime awaits. The hike, led by a top guide, takes you through scenic alpine meadows and ridges, offering stunning landscapes and beautiful flower-filled alpine meadows. Once again, distance and pace are adjusted for each group.
