Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park Heli-hiking Adventure

Travel by helicopter to the remote destination of Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, which borders on the edge of Kananaskis and Banff National Park.  Each day we will experience one of the most beautiful locations in the Canadian Rockies through a series of simple, exciting and absolutely breathtaking hikes, each designed to give the group an unforgettable experience. 

The adventure begins on a Wednesday afternoon from the Mount Shark Helicopter landing area, where a helicopter will fly us in to the base of Magog Lake, deep in the heart of the park. After getting settled into our huts, we'll go on a short tour of the site, and enjoy supper with the group.  Over the next three days, we'll awaken to beautiful mountain vistas, and after breakfast, we'll head out on some of the most amazing hikes the park has to offer.

Each evening we'll return to enjoy prepared supper at the kitchen, and if we are done early, we'll have tea and cakes at the Lodge at 4:00 pm, every day! We'll wrap things up on Saturday with a hike up Nub peak, and we'll take our last views of Mount Assiniboine from a helicopter Sunday morning as we head back. This trip will likely be one that will be unforgettable, so book early! It will fill up fast!
