The trip "Canadian Rockies: Heli-Hike & Wilderness" starts and ends in Calgary. It is a wildlife trip that takes 12 days taking you through Landslide Lake, Lake Louise and Calgary in Canada. "Canadian Rockies: Heli-Hike & Wilderness" is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Few places on Earth offer such pristine and diverse walking options as the Canadian Rockies. Virgin forests, shimmering blue lakes, ancient glaciers, deep canyons and rushing rivers weave across the landscape while wildlife abounds. It’s a paradise for photographers, wildlife and outdoors enthusiasts but, most of all, it’s a haven for walkers. Hike along an extensive network of trails in some of the best national parks in the world as you keep your eyes peeled for bears, eagles, deer and moose. Nothing will inspire you more than a walking trip deep into the Canadian Rockies.

Aldo Kane Collection: A hand-selected range of adventures by our Brand Ambassador:“This adventure offers some of the most remote locations of the lot – think milky-blue lakes, silent virgin forests and ancient glaciers. If you’re looking to explore Canada’s best national parks then the extensive network of trails you’ll discover on this trip won’t disappoint. Aside from exploring Jasper and Banff national parks, the three-night heli-hike excursion near Landslide Lake drops you in the thick of it – so you walk away with an incredible experience in the wild.”We take a short helicopter flight to the Landslide Lake area, where we are placed far from other hikers for a wilderness trek like no other! We set up camp here for the next three nights in an area devoid of other travellers and distractions of everyday modern life.

Please note: While at Landslide Lake, you are not staying in a campsite. This is the Canadian wilderness, and your guide will set up tents where it’s best - there is no predetermined camping spot. You will not have access to showers or modern toilets during your three-night stay, and each day your guide will hoist food into the trees and away from bears. After arrival, and having set up camp, your guide takes you on a hike around the Landslide Lake area.

We ask that you take no more cargo than 20lb (9kg) each including carry-on for these three nights and that it is packed in a soft, small kitbag. If you wish to leave luggage behind, store it inside the trailer, which is left at the helicopter company.

Landslide Lake elevation gain/loss: 985ft-2,625ft (300m-800m) per day
