Mount Assiniboine Guided Hiking Trip

Camping Holiday

Reachable ONLY by hiking 27 kms or by flying in by helicopter (you’ll take the helicopter!) the limited access guarantees semi-seclusion in Mt. Assiniboine Provincial Park, famous for its meadows and easy hiking peaks lying below Canada’s Matterhorn.

Day 1 : Fly to Mount Assiniboine

This morning you will be transferred from Canmore to the Canmore heliport (included). At 8.30am you’ll meet your guide at the Canmore heliport. You’ll go over the trip details with you and check to see that you are properly outfitted before packing and getting ready for a 12.30pm flight. Twenty kilometers and an eight minutes helicopter flight leaves you a world away in a land  of lush meadows, turquoise lakes, snow covered glaciers and rocky peaks. You’ll fly from Spray Lakes in Kananaskis Country, to British Columbia’s Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, landing right beside the historic Lodge. You’ll will carry your gear to the campground, a level 1.5 km away. After settling in and taking a bit of a break, you will head out for the remainder of the day to explore a bit and get a feel for the area. Most guests usually like to enjoy the view and peacefulness of Lake Magog with some tea from the Lodge.
