Kayak Amongst Glaciers
British Columbia, Canada
For one of life's most extraordinary experiences, head to the majestic glaciers of British Columbia. From Vancouver, you will be whisked away to the Canadian wilderness in a helicopter for an unforgettable kayak excursion on pristine glacial lakes.
Offering guests the ultimate in adventure travel, the British Columbian wilderness lies waiting to welcome curious explorers. Each spring when the glacier shoreline thaws to reveal vibrant turquoise waters, guests are able to leave their suitcases in the city, hop into a helicopter and spend the day revelling in one of the most remote locations in the country to kayak at the foot of these giants.
There has never been a more extravagant way of combining the urban with the wild, with this incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience, guests will be welcomed on board a helicopter and head towards the spectacular Coast Mountains. The thirty minute flight offers magnificent views of endless mountain ranges, sprawling valleys and cascading waterfalls before reaching the foot of a glacier. You'll touch down on the ice and be kitted out with your kayak before heading out onto the melt. As you meander past mighty glaciers and marvel at the unspoiled scenery, your guide will talk you through the fascinating landscape of this hidden BC gem. When you're ready, there will be a gourmet picnic waiting for you to enjoy as you soak up the incredible views that surround you. A few more hours of kayaking await, and just when you thought you might never need to return to city skyscrapers and street blocks, the helicopter will be waiting to pick you up for your scenic flight back to Vancouver. As you fly over the granite cliffs and turquoise rivers that wind their way through lush rainforests, keep your eyes peeled for a herd of mountain goats or elk and reminisce on your day spent in the remote glaciers of British Columbia.
