Travel Planning

Package 1: Tweedsmuir Lodge Heliskiing


Maximize your valuable holiday time like never before!

Your Tweedsmuir Lodge Heli Skiing adventure begins with a 425 kilometres (288 miles) flight from Vancouver north to Bella Coola. We recommend arriving the night before your tour, to ensure you adjust to changes in timezones and to make sure you do not miss the flight the following morning.

It is very easy and convenient to get to our Tweedsmuir Lodge Heli Skiing location. There are no long bus rides or multiple flight transfers. In fact, we can have you heliskiing both on your arrival and on your departure days! This means there are 8 possible ski days when you book a 7 night stay. Less travel time equals more skiing!

You will be met by representatives of Bella Coola Heli Sports upon your arrival at the Bella Coola airport.
