This spectacular scenic tour of 40 minutes takes you west over the Slocan Valley, over the small villages
of Winlaw and Appledale and right into the Vahalla Provincial Park. Let the pilot know if you want to meander serenely through these majestic mountains, or take a fearful, stomach-churning journey just above the treetops and down into the valleys.


Enjoy a meal on a mountain top! Bring your picnic and they will fly you to a great location where you can hike back into town. A pick up can also be arranged.

Heli-Mountain Biking:

Nelson is well known for its mountain biking trails but depending on the location you have chosen it is sometimes hard for a large group of friends to bike together. Let them remedy to the situation and fly you and your group to the trail of your choice for an epic descent.


Is there a lake calling your name that you just can't drive or hike to? They can fly you in for the day
or the week-end and pick you up once you have caught your limit. Fish are not guaranteed but a great fishing story is. Their pilots can also recommend one of their favorite spot if you did not pick one yet.
