Walk across a colossal glacier, zip-line over roaring rivers, cross a plunging canyon via a suspension bridge or climb a mountain with no experience necessary. Drench yourself in adrenaline because adventure lives here. CMH's Classic Heli-Accessed Hiking program features many options for 3- or 6-day trips. One day you can be trekking across a colossal glacier under towering granite spires, the next you could be conquering North America’s longest via ferrata. Choose your own adventure while knowing that all paths lead back to a luxe lodge at the end of the day.

Additional Information

A Surplus of Excitement

Looking to add more adventure to your Heli-Hiking, Family or Lodge-to-Lodge trip? CMH has got more than they know what to do with. If you’re looking for a playful escape, come share in the excitement – from hiking alongside formidable glaciers, to ziplining through the trees, to navigating sky-high cable bridges. We dare you not to yell “wahoo!”

Mt. Nimbus Via Ferrata

This trip gives new meaning to a “natural high.” You won’t just feel on top of the world – you’ll be on top of the world. First you’ll scale Mt. Nimbus – and North America's longest via ferrata – then cross a mind-blowing suspension bridge.

Skyladder Via Ferrata

Big views await on this experience of a lifetime. Conquer the via ferrata – Italian for “iron road” – with a half-day vertical tour that takes you up a series of rock-affixed metal rungs. After that, you’ll stroll a spectacular summit with brilliant glacier views.

Conrad Glacier Adventure

Follow a path carved through rock over millennia as you venture through the route towards the Conrad Glacier. This full-day adventure takes you through canyons, over rivers, and up rock walls before finishing with the most impressive view over the Conrad Glacier.

Glacier Trekking

This is what mountaineer dreams are made of. Fly to the edge of Bugaboo Provincial Park then trek with CMH across a glacier and under towering granite spires. The hike itself isn’t challenging but you might struggle to keep your jaw from dropping.

WHAT'S A TYPICAL DAY LIKE? 

Morning offers choices: join the daily morning stretch class at 7:15am or sleep a little longer. Breakfast is served at 8:00am and the first helicopter leaves at 9:00am.

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 with food that you pack from a great selection set out at the lodge each morning, or you can return to the lodge at lunch time. 
In the late afternoon, fly back to the lodge for tea, goodies and relaxation prior to a spectacular dinner and an evening of story-swapping. Just as groups abilities vary, mileage covered also varies from approximately one kilometre (1/2 mile) to 15 kilometres (9 miles) - guests hike as much or as little as they desire.

WHAT ELSE WILL I DO ASIDE FROM THE VIA FERRATA OVER THE 3 OR 6 DAYS? 

On the days you are not doing the Via Ferrata/Glacier Trek, you will be joining the regular Heli-Accessed Hiking groups.
