Pristine alpine hiking in British Columbia, amidst the Columbia Mountains. 

Typically a very popular place for heli-skiing in the winter months, Ghost Peak and the surrounding area offer some epic alpine hiking opportunities! Various routes are available from the ridge connecting Ghost Peak with Mount Cartier. The basin between the peaks, Ghost Peak Basin, is strewn with streams, waterfalls, and five pristine glacial lakes. Distances and elevation gains can be custom-tailored for your group.

Both half-day and full-day hikes are available through Selkirk Tangiers. They also offer heli-biking (mountain bikes), heli-picnicing, and heli-photography (engagement photos, etc.).
