Heli-Hiking the Icefields Parkway
Taking to the skies on a heli-hiking tour gives you the kind of views that you would normally only see on a big screen. From above, braided rivers look like paintings and the immensity of mountain ranges really is breathtaking. After flying high over this picture-perfect scene, you get to land right in the centre of it all. Then hike over rolling meadows between the peaks, with views no matter where you look.

When to go
The Icefields helicopter base is located a couple of hours north of Banff on the Icefields Parkway, so give yourself plenty of time to make the most of the drive.
Layer up! The helicopter ride and the hiking terrain are in the high alpine where conditions change on a dime.
This is one activity where you definitely want to remember a camera.
