Want to take the bucket list glacier lake kayaking adventure a step further? Spend a night at the 5 Billion Star Hotel on a granite sand beach, camped out in front of a glacier. There’s also a mountain top location nearby if you would prefer to camp there for unobstructed 360 degree views!
Summer is a special time in the mountains. The glacial lakes undergo a very short seasonal transformation yielding jewel like water colours that can change daily. These lakes are covered in ice up to 8 months of the year!
Come see British Columbia from a different perspective and watch the mountains transform at night. Embark on a helicopter flight through the spectacular Coast Mountains while enjoying magnificent views as you fly over endless mountains and valleys, waterfalls cascading over granite cliffs, turquoise rivers winding their way through lush temperate rain forests, and even the occasional herd of mountain goats or elk. Just when you think it can’t get any better, our glacial destination pops into view only minutes before we land. Take a moment to revel in the true beauty of British Columbia’s untouched wilderness as we set down beside a lake miles away from civilization. This is the experience of a lifetime. Choose from kayaking or paddle boarding and enjoy complete peace and serenity in one of Mother Nature’s best kept secrets
After some leisurely paddling across the vast glacial lake, set up camp, grab a bite, and then begin exploring. There’s so much to see in the little details. Rare, fragile wildflowers dot the seemingly inhospitable landscape. When the sun goes down, the area takes on a whole new level of beauty. The mountain sky is so clear, and the water so still, stars reflect off the lake. Let your eyes adjust to the dark. Connect with Nature like never before. Check out the photo gallery here.
