Departure date

The below itinerary is only a suggestion, we offer tailor-made personal service and solutions to help you plan your perfect vacation. This itinerary is also available in the reverse direction.

Day 1 Calgary to Lake Louise (Private SUV transfer) Leave the Stampede City of Calgary or Calgary Airport on a private transfer to the “Jewel of the Rockies” Lake Louise. The rest of the day is free to explore the sights.

Day 2 Lake Louise Exploring; Banff Tour (Private SUV tour) This morning is free to explore Lake Louise. In the afternoon enjoy a tour through the town of Banff and its environs. Among the highlights are visits to the Hoodoos (shaped by centuries of wind), Surprise Corner, Sulphur Mountain Gondola Ride and Tunnel Mountain Drive, which overlooks the splendour of Bow Valley.

Day 3 Banff Exploring The day is free to explore Banff and area on your own. In town you’ll find lots of excitement - shopping, cafés, nightlife and museums. Optional activities include golfing at the Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course renowned for its panoramic beauty, horseback riding on nearby mountain trails or floating on the magnificent Bow River.

Day 4 Banff to CMH Heli Hiking Lodge (Coach) Depart Banff this morning for the two hour motorcoach transfer to the Bugaboos Helipad. Light breakfast snacks are provided. We travel through Banff and Kootenay National Parks enroute to our destination. On arrival at the helipad prepare for the quick flight to Bugaboo Lodge. Meet the Lodge Manager who assigns you your room and directs you to the equipment room where you are outfitted with all the necessary gear for the next few days. You will then have lunch in the lodge. Following a helicopter safety talk, fly up for an afternoon of hiking in some of the world’s most stunning mountains. Return back to the lodge later in the day for après-hiking appetizers and relaxation. Dinner is served family style.

Day 5-6 CMH Heli Hiking After an optional stretch class make your way up to the dining room for a delicious and hearty breakfast. Then pack your lunch for the day from the selection of sandwiches, beverages, fruit, cookies and other items set out for you. You'll be divided into groups according to the activity level and adventure you've chosen. After breakfast each day, set out by helicopter with your guide to spend the day exploring the immense variety of landscapes. Choose classic hiking, walking or one of our adventure trails such as the Skyladder Via Ferrata and the Bugaboo Spires Glacier Trek. After a memorable day, fly back to the lodge for snacks and beverages; have a massage, take in the sauna or outdoor hot tub before dinnertime.

Day 7 CMH Heli Hiking Lodge to Calgary (Coach) Shortly after breakfast, prepare for departure. Once everyone is down at the helipad the CMH arranged ground transportation retraces the journey through Kootenay and Banff National Parks to Banff. Following the Trans-Canada Highway, depart the Rocky Mountains to the Great Central Plains that roll to the east for 2000 kilometres and extend as far south as Mexico.
