WORDS BY ALISON JONES | OCTOBER 5, 2017

In a time when the world feels like it’s getting smaller, the idea of walking on ground that hasn’t seen summer visitors for 10 years is nothing short of dreamy. But at the Cariboos, that’s exactly your reality.

As of July 2018, CMH Cariboos will reopen for Summer Adventures allowing access to a stunning landscape that few others have seen or explored. Last month, a group of guests got a sneak peek at the heli-hiking and all-around awesome available at the remote luxury lodge.

Here’s the first look at some of the best shots from the trip ahead of next summer.

Known for her stunning photography work and general stoke on nature, Katie captured the raw and rugged topography of the landscape in the Cariboos. This shot was taken while hiking next to the impressive Zillmer Glacier.

It’s not every day that you can look down on clouds – but that’s what happens when you’re hiking at 10,000ft. This photo was shot with Nikon’s new D850 full-frame camera.

The best kind of taxi. Area Manager John Mellis leads the hike to explore Zillmer Canyon after the mountaintop drop-off. This was one of three hiking locations during the day, each with a ‘heli bump’ in-between.

The road to CMH Cariboos isn’t half-bad either. This sunrise was shot at Vermillion Lakes in Banff National Park, shortly before joining the impressive drive on the Icefields Parkway; a route that’s regularly noted as one of the best drives in the world.

A nightly occurrence when you’re miles from anywhere.

Dramatic doesn’t even begin to describe the landscape as swathes of billowing clouds embracing vast mountains which led many to stop in their tracks.

 

The opening of CMH Cariboos in July 2018 complements our existing offering of Summer Adventures trips at the Bugaboos and Bobbie Burns lodges. These remote lodges offer backcountry luxury for you and just a handful of others, for 2-7 day trips. See here for more information >>
