We can't say enough about our heli-hiking experience at the Bobbie Burns lodge. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The guides were so incredibly experienced and obviously passionate about the mountains - we felt completely safe in their hands. Due to weather, we couldn't do both FULL Via Ferratas, but we did the best parts of both Mt Nimbus and Conrad Glacier. WOW WOW WOW! I wouldn't hesitate to go back and do it all over again!! Awesome food - they fed us very very well! One of the best beef tenderloins I've had in a long time. Super comfortable room. I already can't wait to go back and I've got a lineup of friends who will join me after seeing my social media posts!

We had a wonderful trip with CMH. We came with our two daughters, ages 12 and 13. One was initially scared of the concept of riding in a helicopter, the other was hesitant about the via ferrata. The staff got both girls to conquer their fears. We stayed at the Bobbie Burns Lodge which has a lovely relaxed atmosphere with spacious rooms. The rooms had bathrooms with rainforest shower heads along with standard shower heads and they also had a lot of options for charging devices. The staff members were all very friendly and got to know everyone on a first name basis. Even though we were at separate tables from other clients (due to Covid) there was still ample opportunity to interact with others. The hikes themselves were fun and adventurous. People could not believe my photos when I got back. We did both the Mount Nimbus and the Conrad Glacier via ferratas. There were often people of mixed abilities on the hikes, but the guides allowed anyone to do any hike of their choosing ie. there was no discrimination based on ability. For example, on the Conrad glacier hike, there were a couple of more tentative hikers, so the guides just modified their route and allowed them to skip certain difficult river crossings. I loved the fact that all the hiking was one way! We didn't have to retrace our steps once. The helicopter would pick us up at a different point on every occasion. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. I love the fact that th

This was my second heli-hiking trip with CMH. The first was a few years ago at the Bugaboo Lodge. This year they only opened the Bobbie Burns Lodge for heli-hiking and only to a limited number of guests as Covid protocols were in place. It certainly did not disappoint! I can recommend this trip to everyone. The lodge is spacious and has recently been updated. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The lounge/bar is well set up with large tables and comfortable armchairs. The dining room tables are well spaced following covid protocols, and guests encouraged to dine within their own cohorts. As a cohort of one this was potentially a problem for me, however, a delightful couple quickly invited me to join them, so it was no problem. Missing because of covid was the practice of family dining which is usually the rule in the CMH lodges, but that was understandable in the circumstances. The dining room and bar staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful, and as others have noted, knew me by name after the first day. The food was great and the lunch items fresh and delicious. Masks were handed out on the first day, and worn throughout the lodge except when eating or drinking. Masks were also required on the helipad and in the helicopter. The guides were absolutely first rate on every count! I heard nothing but rave reviews from the younger people who did the via ferratas. On the first day we were asked what sort of hiking we would like to do in terms of pace and difficulty. As a senior, I opted for more gentle hiking, and was grouped with people of similar age and ability. For the two full days I was guided by Matt B, and it was a wonderful experience. The pace was great, the views spectacular in spite of a slight smoke haze. We were able to hike up to a high alpine lake, up to a small summit over 8000ft asl, spend time looking at alpine wildflowers, identified with the help of our guide, and walk on a glacier. The second day was capped off with a swim in an alpine lake. As someone who has done many guided hiking trips, I would say that this one ranks amongst the best. After at least 18 months without being able to go on hiking trips, this was a real tonic!
