Avoid carrying a heavy pack on this fly-in hiking expedition to Mount Assiniboine. Mt. Assiniboine Provincial Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is famous for its meadows and easy hiking peaks which lie below the 3618 metre Matterhorn-like peak that towers above. Using a helicopter to transport the guests and gear, you by-pass the typically strenuous hike to reach this alpine paradise. With the food and gear flown in you are able to travel light during the day as you explore the lakes, peaks, meadows and passes that surround the base for the four days.
A twenty eight kilometers and a twelve minute helicopter flight leaves you a world away in a land of lush meadows, turquoise lakes, snow covered glaciers and rocky peaks. This relaxed hiking program is for those interested in experiencing four days of walking in the beautiful alpine region. There are not many areas where it is possible to do this and avoid carrying the heavier backpack usually required to visit such a place.
