A True Paradise Lake, B.C., Backcountry Camping Experience
Come and experience the ultimate heli camping and fishing adventure in our beautiful backcountry. Embark on a helicopter flight through the spectacular Coast Mountains and enjoy magnificent views as you fly over endless mountains and valleys, waterfalls cascading over granite cliffs, turquoise rivers winding their way through lush temperate rainforests, and even the occasional herd of mountain goats or elk. Just when you think it can’t get any better, our wilderness lake destination pops into view only minutes before we land. Spend your first day fishing for wild trout from the shore or by angler kayak, explore the rainforest and take in the beautiful vistas, or simply relax on the beach in the most peaceful setting you could wish for. Backpacker style meals will be served for dinner before we gather around the campfire for hot beverages and stargazing. Enjoy the silence or engage in profound conversations as you appreciate the true beauty of nature.

Mountain weather can change rapidly — guests should be prepared for the elements.
At the very least, from May 1st to October 1st, we recommend dressing in layers: long pants, long-sleeve or short-sleeve shirt, windbreaker fleece, rain jacket, and appropriate outdoor footwear (hiking shoes, boots or trail runners with lightweight merino wool socks). We also recommend bringing comfortable clothes to wear around the campfire.
Hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, and sunglasses are recommended as well. You may get wet and therefore we suggest you bring a change of clothes. Or if it’s really hot out, bring sandals, a towel, and swimming attire in addition to the above items.
What not to wear: dark colors, cotton clothing, jeans with holes in them, street shoes, dress shoes. If you bring your own fishing gear, single barbless hooks only on small trout rod setups. If you’d like to fish from shore, bring waders.
