Full description
Treat yourself to a Heli Snowshoeing Adventure in the Canadian Rockies and see them from a different perspective. Admire stunning, birds-eye views of the snowy mountains, frozen lakes, and glaciers as you soar above them in a helicopter. Then, your pilot will land at a high alpine meadow with over 2 meters of snow or at the at the confluence, where Cline River and Waterfalls Creek meet. From there, set off on an exciting 1-hour snowshoe adventure to a frozen waterfall. Warmup half-way through your snowshoe with a complimentary hot chocolate and Irish cream in the wilderness.
