British Columbia, Canada
Why a Heli Trip with CMH Will Change Your Travel MindsetThe kinds of trips offered by Canadian Mountain Holidays, a Banff based company, are ones that inspire you to change your lifestyle. Recently, I went on three-night summer heli trip to the Bobbie Burns Lodge in the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia. It left me craving more, and with a different mindset about adventure travel. We took off for the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia by a jet-powered helicopter for a ride into the backcountry. Flying in, I'm in awe, looking out the window, where towering mountains, silty streams, emerald-hued lakes and vibrant dots of wildflowers loom below. CMH has been running top-rated winter heli-ski trips for more than 30 years now, but recently they expanded to offer summer trips, that incorporate rock climbing, zip-lines, hiking and helicopters, so guests can enjoy mountain adventures year around.
We stay at the European Style Bobbie Burns Lodge which has everything from a hot tub, pool and even a spa. But I am here primarily for the outdoors, starting with a via ferrata leading to the top of Mt. Nimbus.
