Trip Info & What's Included


Getting to Nelson

Country Road


Arrive: the Night before

We highly recommend booking a hotel for the night before you join us, and a hotel for the evening you fly out. 

Helicopters are cool, but flights can change instantly for a variety of reasons.

Don't worry, we've got all the possibilities pre-planned. Click on the button below to work out the option that works for you. 


First Day 


Arrive: 830am

Once everyone has arrived at the staging area, we will go over a few things. 

The Lodge Keepers will welcome you with some snacks, and set you at ease with a Safety Talk. Here, we can answer any questions you might have. 

Then each individual (over 18) will read, understand, and sign the waiver. The only thing left is to hop on Heli and let the good times begin! 



3, 4 & 7 Day Trips

Happy Hiking


Breakfast: 730am

Each day will have a range of seasonal activities to satisfy your off grid adventure cravings. We will also offer alternative activities that will offer serene peace and relaxation. Each day starts with a fresh and deliciously prepared breakfast, served at 730am! 

We are currently building our seasonal program lists. But you can anticipate guided tours to the Gold Mine, Alpine Lakes, and Ridge-top Peaks. Winter will offer Snowshoeing and other options are in the works! 


Flying Out


Depart: 10am

Timing of the flight will be subject to change due to weather, outside emergencies, and other variables. 

If our flight gets delayed, don't worry. We either wait in the Lower Lodge, or the Upper Lodge. Both Lodge's are equip with Starlink Wifi, plenty of food, and the comfort and safety of the Lodge itself.

Alcohol & Bar Service

Mountain Top Margarita anyone? I think yes. Once we have our full service Bar available, (Coming Soon) your Lodge Keeper can craft you the perfect backcountry cocktail.

This is never expected by the Lodge Keepers or Guides, however, it is alway greatly appreciated.

Insurance is always recommended. This is the best backcountry thing to have but not need.
