High Flying Adventures in the Bobbie Burns
Mt. Nimbus Via Ferrata: Pack some extra adrenaline.
Spirited, thrill-seeking guests will feel on top of the world following an exhilarating excursion to the summit of Mt. Nimbus. Scaling this impressive rock formation is easy and secure thanks to the metal rungs and safety systems of North America's longest via ferrata. A mind-blowing suspension bridge lies between two spires rising 600 meters above the valley floor—the pinnacles of which you will conquer.
Conrad Glacier Adventure Hike in the Bobbie Burns:
The perfect mix of feratta, fun and fantastic.
Hike up close and personal in the immense blue tongue of the Conrad ice field, the largest in the Columbia Mountains. Navigate this wilderness course by walking through wild canyons, crossing cable bridges and zip-lines suspended high above rushing waters, and ascending vertical rock faces along the metal via ferrata rungs, all in the company of this stunning and formidable glacial formation.
Ultimate Tree-Top Ropes Course:
Monkey see, monkey do.
No espresso bars, leather armchairs or simulated wilderness here…welcome to the ultimate jungle gym: a two-story ropes course set high in the trees of the emerald green forests that sit smack in the middle of majestic Columbia mountains. With a giddy spirit and steady resolve, work your way through a fun and challenging series of obstacles that will awaken the inner thrill in you.
Propel yourself into thrilling.
Raging rivers and wilderness canyons coursing through the mountain landscape are inviting you, no daring you, to zipline across their expanse. Your spine-tingling chills will reach another level as soon as you step off familiar footing and into the awaiting air where sheer physics will propel you into incredible aerial views.
High Flying Adventures in the Bugaboos
Skyladder Via Ferrata in the Bugaboos:
Aiming for the sky one rung at a time.
Your adventure begins with a half-day vertical ascent towards what else? Nothing but sky. The ladder is a series of metal rungs permanently secured to the rocks with cables running alongside. Hikers don safety harnesses and climb at their own pace in the company of a professional mountain guide. Upon reaching the summit, hike along a ridge—think sidewalk in the sky—with nature's skyscrapers, the Bugaboo spires, dominating the horizon. Spend the afternoon hiking above deep valleys, gazing on brilliant glaciers, and soaking up a 360° view of alpine paradise.
Glacier Trek Adventures in the Bugaboos:
Journey without going into thin air.
These one-of-a-kind adventures allow guests an up-close and personal journey through a labyrinth of glaciers amidst the most famous granite spires in North America. You'll fly by helicopter to the edge of Bugaboo Provincial Park where you will be outfitted with ropes, crampons, ice axes and harnesses for travel across a blanketed glacier that winds beneath the towering pinnacles. With commanding scenery that oftentimes moves people to tears, these treks are thrilling, explorative, yet technically easy adventures in the magical world of glaciers.
