Our guided Heli-Hiking will take you to a place to see what few others will. Amble amongst the giants of glaciers and soaring peaks, free from crowds, trails, and limitations.
The ultimate in backcountry luxury
Fully equipped with all the modern amenities, our three casual, yet refined lodges provide the ultimate home base for summer relaxation and exploration. Staffed with a dedicated team of guides, hosts and culinary talent, each lodge is equipped with a variety of offerings to enhance your experience. And to answer your next question, "Which lodge is better?" Well, that would be like trying to pick a favourite child, which we can't. Each lodge is unique, but we know whichever one you choose will exceed your expectations.
NEW FOR 2018! From trekking among glacier giants to walking endless ridgelines with mountains as far as the eye can see, the Cariboos are stunning in every season.
With stunning views of the Purcell and Vertigo mountain ranges on your doorstep, the Bobbie Burns Lodge is the perfect destination for relaxation.
Nestled in the shadows of the Bugaboos mountain range in south east British Columbia, the Bugaboo Lodge sits at a commanding 1,500 m high.
Take a 2-, 3- or 6-day trip through breathtaking scenery hardly anyone else has seen. You’ll catch a morning helicopter then spend the day exploring mountain ridges and meadows. As a group we’ll get so far off the beaten path that there aren’t any paths at all – then we’ll head back to civilization (and a very luxe lodge).
What happens when you combine million-year-old mountains with zip-lines, glaciers, waterfalls, and your whole family? Quality time, completely redefined. Our 3- or 6-night lodge-to-lodge trips are packed with scenery, activities, memories, and laughter.
Indulge in one grand guided experience that spans two remote lodges (accessible by helicopter only) and Canada's Columbia Mountains. Start your adventure at the Bobbie Burns Lodge, then heli-hop to the Bugaboos Lodge, all the while exploring the world's most glorious glaciers and mountain terrain.

The day you arrive at the lodge we will outfit you with boots, jackets, daypacks, rainpants, walking poles and a water bottle. Lunch will be served then you will head outside for a helicopter safety briefing. You will hike that afternoon (at Bugaboos and Bobbie Burns). The next morning you can join the morning stretch or sleep a little longer. Breakfast is served at 8:00 am and the first helicopter leaves at 9:00 am. Each group, with its own guide, spends the day roaming and hiking in the mountains. Over the course of the day the helicopter may move each group to three or four different areas giving you a chance to experience a variety of settings. Lunch is picnic-style that you pack from a scrumptious selection set out each morning. In the late afternoon we fly back to the lodge for tea goodies and relaxation prior to a spectacular dinner and an evening of story-swapping. Just as our groups vary, our mileage varies from a kilometre or so (1/2 mile) to 15 kilometres (9 miles). Our guests hike as much or as little as they desire.
The Via Ferrata is completely optional - you can choose to do a Via Ferrata or Glacier Trek or hike every day.
Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the lodge, as well as a computer area that you can use for internet browsing. Phones can be found in the computer area, and long-distance calling cards are available for purchase in our retail shop.
Yes, we can cater to your dietary restrictions.
