Revelstoke Hiking – via Helicopter
Imagine being dropped off high in the mountains to start your day off hiking. All heli hiking and mountaineering days can be tailored to individual desires; anything from wildflower carpeted meadows to glaciers and peak ascents to amazing family hiking days. Heli Hiking requires no special skills. It combines the thrill of a helicopter ride with a Revelstoke hiking or walking experience that you choose – from leisurely to challenging – and a range of alpine terrain that never fails to inspire.
You’ll find a great choice of guiding services and information to get you higher; whether by flight or by foot. Go explore that mountain you’ve been spying from town, breath the fresh air brushing off glaciers, and get lost in the rain forest’s lush floor.
