Helitour the Canadian Rockies, Alberta, Canada

By Elite Traveler |  March 7 2018


One of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, Canada’s Rockies are an awe-inspiring scene of jagged peaks, lush forests and alpine lakes. The best way to take in the awesome landscape is via helicopter — explore remote, virtually untouched areas that can’t be accessed by foot. Tauck’s seven-day Bugaboos Adventure begins at Alberta’s Banff National Park, a Unesco World Heritage site, where you can horseback ride, hike through the mountains or take to the river for a rafting adventure. Next, head to the high country of the Purcell Mountains by helicopter to check out the snow fields, huge valleys and snowcapped peaks. Each time the helicopter lands, an expert guide will escort you to secluded landscapes to see sights such as chiseled granite spires towering up to 9,800ft, ice fields and waterfalls. During the trip, you’ll stay in Canada’s finest mountain resorts, including Bugaboos Lodge and Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.
