The Canadian Rockies are natures playground with mighty jagged ice capped peaks, crystal clear alpine lakes, thrashing falls and varied wildlife. And it does not get more epic than a heli-hike from Lake of the Falls. From above we get an exciting perspective of the dramatic landscapes that awaits us during the hike. This is true bucket list stuff. We spend a night in Calgary before heading to Kananaskis in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. Some wonderful walks await us including the Rawson Lake trail. The Burstall Pass ascends Mount Assiniboine and rewards us with views down as far as Banff National Park. And the Centennial Ridge trail is the highest maintained trail in the Rockies and crosses over the top of Mount Allan, revealing the most awe-inspiring views. Our scenic journey to Golden takes us through numerous national parks. Golden is the gateway to both Glacier and Yoho National Park and we discover both through walks including the Iceline and Abbot Ridge trail. Next, we travel to the biggest and most diverse of all the national parks in the Canadian Rockies, Jasper National Park. To discover rolling hills, forests, small lakes, glaciers, waterfalls, canyons and caves, surrounded by mighty mountain peaks and the perfect place to spot more of Canadas elusive wildlife. On our way to Banff we set our sights on Lake Louise. A beautiful hamlet known for its turquoise glacier-fed lakes surrounded by high peaks, and the location of our thrilling heli-hike. After amiring the magnificent scenery below, we land at The Lake of the Falls where our guide will decide where we head. Finally, Banff National Park where mountain scenery is renowned the world over. Here we are spoilt for choice, so we have included some of our favourites. Sentinel Pass begins with breath-taking views of the Valley of the Ten Peaks, towering above stunning Moraine Lake, and it only gets better from here! And the Cory and Edith Pass is best saved until last, an exhilarating walk, which ensures that you work hard to earn the glory of reaching each pass, rewarding us with our final views of the Rockies before we sadly head home.We travel back to Calgary and head straight to the airport for our return flight.
