Heli-Biking in Canada

Accessible only by air or boat, Nimmo Bay Resort is truly wild and remote. The thick green canopy of the Great Bear Rainforest towers over the chalet-style lodge, and a vast lake is directly in front — and there’s a tumbling 5,000-ft waterfall just steps away. When the Murray family opened it in 1982, it was the world’s first eco-lodge, and sustainability is still at the heart of this ruggedly beautiful place (and it’s still owned and operated by the Murrays). As the resort is set in such a breathtaking wilderness, there is a veritable toy box of wondrous activities to be enjoyed, from a bonfire on the floating dock and kayaking in the clear waters to salmon fishing. The resort has a stellar heli-biking program: Soar up to forested alpine and remote mountain ridges and glaciers, then explore the outstanding landscape by fat bike. With legs suitably tired and camera memory filled up, stop off for a remote gourmet picnic.

Helicopter day trips from $5,800 per day, Cabin from $1,195 per night. Contact Fraser Murray, manager, heli@nimmobay.com, +1 800 837 4354, nimmobay.com
