Owner description: Have you ever dreamed of soaring over the mountains? With Yellowhead Heli-Tours you can experience the mountains of British Columbia like you have never imagined. Helicopter sight seeing and adventure with Yellowhead Heli-Tours is a once in a lifetime experience. Soaring high above this pristine wilderness of rock, ice and blue green glacier fed lakes will take your breath away. Along with Robson Helimagic we fly to Robson Pass on Mondays and Fridays giving day hikers and campers a leg up on back country hiking. Join us on a flight to Berg Lake and the majestic Mt. Robson. It's time to make some memories.

We have hiked this area many times and either made Berg Lake the destination or through hiked further into the back country. This time we wanted to enjoy the day hiking in the Berg Lake area. The day hiking was spectacular, but the best hikes are full days by themselves so we are really happy we chose to fly in. Stayed for three nights and hiked to the Mural Glacier, Snowbird Pass, and the Tobaggan Falls/Hargraeves Lake routes. We were able to enjoy the best of the area as well as hike out and appreciate the trail itself.

Very well organized and professional service!

Chris and the crew at Robson Helimagic were awesome, made it very easy for us to organize a trip to into Adolphus Lake Camp for 2 nights. Two out of our group of 4 enjoyed the Helicopter ride into Berg Lake area, where we could join the other two hiking up, and they didn't mind a bit that we could bring a few luxury items along :) The views were excellent with clear skies, the crew flying us in were friendly and professional. We look forward to planning the next trip!

We went up to Berg lake the first week of July for a 2 night stay, and opted to use the heliride for a couple of us and sent some of the bigger bags up, instead of hauling them. We are glad we did and Chris and her group at Robson Helimagic made it work for us.

We would have liked if the heliride was in the later part of the day, but they only flew up in the morning, most people I was told, hike down same day.... Breathtaking views flying in and overall a wonderful experience, including the hike there.

Nothing to do with the heliride, but be prepared for mosquitos, especially after the rains this year.

We camped and hiked at Mt. Robson for 3 days but rather than do the 21 K hike in and out with a heavy pack, we opted to fly in with Helimagic and enjoy all the spectacular hiking from Berg Lake. We therefore had both a fantastic heli-ride and bird's eye view of the peaks and glaciers, as well as some of the finest hiking in the Rockies. Thank you Helimagic!

This has become one of my annual trips! I have hiked and travelled to several places in the world and Berg Lake has to be one of the most beautiful. Taking the helicoper saves time and gets you into the backcountry in 10 minutes. (~$250.00/person) You can arrange to fly out the same day, on another day, or walk out the 22 km. (Flight days are Monday and Friday only) Flying through the Valley of a Thousand Falls, over Emperor falls, Berg Lake and the glaciers that flow into the lake are all part of the trip. Once dropped off at Berg Lake a whole new world awaits your discovery, with Mumm Basin, Hargraves Glacier, Toboggan Falls, and one of the best hikes in the world, Snowbird Pass. Several campsites are available at Berg Lake. (Mt Robson Provincial Park) Celebrate Mt. Robson's 100 Birthday in 2013 with an amazing Helicopter ride into Berg Lake.
