Tauck World Discovery

Tauck World Discovery Announces 7 Day “Heli-Exploring” Trip in Canadian Rockies


more deals

Next summer, the Tauck family will celebrate 90 years since Arthur Tauck Sr launched his own escorted tour business.  Tauck came up with the idea for the helicopter tour company in the 70's after he stayed at a ski lodge only accessible by helicopter.  To his surprise, these lodges were completely desolate in the summer months when it wasn't ski season.  That’s when he came up with the idea of utilizing these properties in the off season for those, like himself, who are seeking an adventure.

The seven day itinerary starts with two nights at The Fairmont Chateau Louise in Banff National Park.  On the third day, guests will be transported via helicopter to Bugaboo Lodge where they will stay for three nights exploring the land by a guided walk either on an easy course or a more rough terrain, depending on the guests’ preferences. For this, it is recommended to bring hiking gear such as boots, jackets and rain pants which are also available to use free-of-charge if guests do not have their own.  On the sixth day, guests will be taken down by helicopter from the Purcells to spend their final evening at Fairmont Banff Springs.  On their way, they will stop in Yoho National Park and get to spend time at Emerald Lake.

The “Bugaboo Adventure” has six different departures through the months of July and August 2015.  The price is $5,990 per person based on double occupancy plus airfare.  Included in the price is all lodging, helicopter and ground transportation, airport transfers, all meals (except for one lunch at Lake Louise), and most gratuities.

Tauck also will operate 38 all-inclusive trips in North America in 2015, from a Canadian polar bear voyage to a New Orleans exploration of jazz music with film maker Ken Burns.  In addition, Tauck has five separate bridge itineraries, an Alaskan adventure in partnership with BBC Earth, and a five day tour of the culturally diverse and historic New York City.
