CLASSIC HELI-HIKE IN THE CARIBOOS AND ZILMER CANYON

We've done it before and we're doing it again!

Join us for a most impressive hiking terrain, glaciers and via ferrata in Canada on a 4-day trip to the Cariboos. You’ll catch a morning helicopter then spend the day exploring mountain ridges and meadows. As a group we’ll get off the beaten path that there aren’t any paths at all—then we’ll head back to civilization (and a very comfy lodge).

You will have access to some of the most stunning scenery in Canada v via helicopter with a highly-qualified guide as your lead and a group of like-minded hikers as your companions.
