Bugaboos Heli-hiking Adventure
The Bugaboos are perhaps best known for their majestic spires coveted by elite climbers from around the world. Until recently, difficult access has prevented recreational hikers from enjoying this little-known treasure trove of hiking areas. Lush meadows, bubbling creeks, awesome glaciers and stunning ridge walks define the region. The Bobbie Burns Range, named for the renowned Scottish poet, is all but endless: deep river basins, meadows of wildflowers, icy crystalline lakes and ancient glaciers are just some of the inspiring alpine features awaiting exploration. We have combined the best of these ranges and crafted a unique adventure second to none. Based out of the very comfortable Bobbie Burns and Bugaboo Lodges, we experience superb heli-hiking each day and relax at night in the quiet ambience of these mountain lodges. Meal times are a delight with family style dinners and impromptu presentations by local personalities, adventurers and guides. With convenient pick up in Banff, this is a fantastic add on to any Canadian Rocky Mountains adventure or a fantastic trip in its own right. *Due to renovations to the Bugaboos Lodge during summer 2014, all accommodation will be in the Bobbie Burns Lodge, there will be no changes to the heli-hiking program.
