Heli-hiking tours in Canada
Never heard of heli-hiking tours before for a Canadian vacation idea? Don't worry; you're not the only newcomer to this exciting Canadian outdoor activity which allows you to see the sights of Canada up close and from a panoramic view. Heli-hiking is a very popular activity in Canada's national parks, especially those in the Canadian Rockies, whose Canadian terrain lends itself perfectly to the Canadian tours and trips in Canada.
Heli-hiking is just what it sounds like: tours combining sightseeing from a helicopter and hiking. There are numerous heli-hiking tours available in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and if you've never been on a heli-hiking tour, it's an unforgettable experience while on a Canadian vacation in the Canadian Rockies. You can hike through Canadian meadows filled with alpine wildflowers, rugged mountain passes, visit Canadian glaciers and take in the view from the top of a mountain, all in single day trips!
During these Canadian vacation packages and tours you'll also be able to enjoy breathtaking aerial views of the Canadian scenery as you travel on your tours from hike to hike. Heli-hiking allows you to cover a lot of ground in a short time, effectively letting you get in several days of hiking and sightseeing tours in the mountains in one and increasing the amount you see on your Canadian vacation. It also makes hiking in the Canadian Rockies and mountains an activity vacation destination that is accessible for the entire family. Even the very young and senior citizens who might otherwise find lengthy hikes up and down the mountains to be too physically taxing can enjoy the Canadian scenery and the fresh mountain air; it's an ideal Canadian vacation tour for any summer family vacation.
It's a unique way of experiencing the best that the Canadian Rockies has to offer on your Canadian vacation while still enjoying all the comfort of staying in a Canadian hotel; a factor which makes heli-hiking very appealing to those who just don't find camping to be their idea of a good time for a Canadian vacation. The tours can start in the morning and spend the day hiking while arriving back at your Canadian lodgings in plenty of time to relax and enjoy your evening of your vacation in the Canadian Rockies.
If heli-hiking sounds like an activity you want to experience on your next Canadian vacation, Canadian Train Vacations can help.

Hi, I'm Meaghan!
“Growing up in Oakville, ON, I was just a short distance from Toronto. Canada's largest city is a bustling metropolis with so many incredible attractions for just about anyone! There are world class museums, outdoor parks, boutique shops and international cuisine. Whenever I'm visiting, I love to take in some local theatre. From award-winning musicals to comedy, Toronto's theatre scene is one of the best in the world!”
Hi, I'm Eva!
“Montreal is my favourite city in Canada. It’s like a little slice of Europe, with narrow, cobblestone streets, oodles of history and, for the shopaholics out there, some of the best shopping on the continent. If you visit, be sure to try the poutine, a local delicacy of French fries, gravy and cheese curds.”
Hi, I'm Richard!
“Nova Scotia was the first place in Canada I visited and has a special place in my heart. The rugged coastal scenery is beautiful, the people are the friendliest, and the fresh Atlantic seafood is delicious, not to mention reasonably priced! I loved touring the countryside, exploring quaint fishing villages and sampling the surprisingly good wineries. I also loved cosmopolitan Halifax – so much to do, and fascinating history!”
Hi, I'm Kirsten!
“The glacial beauty of Moraine Lake in the Rockies first lured me to Canada, but it's the charm of Vancouver that has kept me here! Known as the modern ‘City of Glass’ it's surrounded by a stunning natural environment of ocean and mountains. This results in my perfect day: a morning of watching seaplanes take off from the harbour, and an afternoon to meet the resident grizzly bears on Grouse Mountain.”
Hi, I'm Sarah!
“Toronto is an exciting and lively city! I visit every summer and love to explore the different neighbourhoods for samples of food and people watching. Taking in the old brick buildings and beautiful murals in Kensington Market, or the view of the entire city from the CN Tower – it's all a treat to experience and you never know what to expect while wandering the streets in a big city!”
Hi, I'm Adam!
“The Canadian Rockies have been a passion of mine for almost a decade, and I previously worked as a Rocky Mountain tour guide. What makes the Rockies such a majestic place is how far removed you feel while experiencing it. Be prepared to see untouched nature, from wild Grizzly bears foraging for buffalo berries, to moose swimming the glacier fed turquoise lakes (a little luck needed).”
Hi, I'm Cathy!
“The Yukon Territory has a special place in my heart. It feels like you’re travelling back in time. Is it the Gold Rush history, the wildlife encounters or the wide open spaces that leave you voiceless or is it for the dogsledding, the ice fishing or the relaxing natural hot springs that you want to come back over and over again? I fell in love with the Last Frontier and experienced a true moment of awe under the magic of the Northern Lights!”
Hi, I'm Natalie!
“I am completely smitten with the Maritimes and love how easy it is to cover New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI in one trip. The drive is half of the fun, with stunning seascapes and the amazing Confederation Bridge! The red sand and warm water at all of PEI's beaches completely captivated me. And of course, no PEI visit is complete without tasting some locally-made ice cream and freshly caught mussels!”
Hi, I'm Greg!
“I am in love with our nation's capital, Ottawa. The city has many of its best sights within walking distance of each other. In the centre of it all are the inspiring gothic style parliament buildings, just steps away from the vibrant ByWard Market. And in what other city can you ice skate to work?! The Rideau Canal is a marvel that I will always remember.”
Hi, I'm Melanie!
“The lakes and mountains of British Columbia are what won my heart the first time I flew over the Rockies to come to Vancouver – it was love at first sight! Panorama Ridge, where I stand, with Garibaldi Lake in the background is one of many breath-taking views around Garibaldi National Park. It is a gorgeous place to hike, to camp, to breathe clean air and feel the calming energy of the giant peaks with their glaciers.”
Hi, I'm Angie!
“I love the West Coast! I moved here from Ontario years ago but am still in awe of the mountains and ocean. I commute to work from an island and am lucky enough to get to enjoy the natural beauty of the West Coast on a daily basis. Sometimes we're even greeted by whales or dolphins as we boat in! We're close to world-class ski mountains, beautiful city of Vancouver, and are just a short ferry ride away from Vancouver Island.”
Hi, I'm Holly!
“Vancouver is the love of my life. The stunning greenery and towering mountains that surround my city make it breathtakingly beautiful. Walking through Lynn Canyon or hiking up to Quarry Rock in North Vancouver, and I am in my happy place. I also love stopping by Granville Island after my adventures for the best food and drink to satisfy my growling belly! And then Kitsilano Beach is my favourite for sunset viewing.”
Hi, I'm Alysha!
“Driving up the Sunshine Coast never fails to take my breath away. Tucked into BC's west coast, accessible only by ferry, this little paradise is as laid-back as it is scenic. I love spending a morning kayaking out on the ocean, an afternoon wandering through the local artisan shops, and an evening indulging in BC's freshest west coast cuisine (and a local craft beer or two!).”
