13 Valemount Lodge, British Columbia
THE SETTING The heart of wildflower country in the Columbia Mountains.
GREEN FACTOR Canadian Mountain Holidays, an early pioneer of helicopter skiing, has easy access to more than 2,000 square miles of salmon-hopping, goat-bleating wilderness; come summer, the company's high-flying taxi service lets heli-hikers discover vast tracts of off-piste alpine terrain. Biologist-led hikes follow rocky ridges and ancient herd paths rather than more fragile routes. Rest assured, treks end at the rustic-chic 10-room timber lodge, where plenty of biodegradable bathroom potions are on hand to soothe those weary soles.
Valemount; 800/661-0252 or 403/762-7100; ; two-night trips from $854 per person, including all meals, gear, and helicopter ride.
Naledi continues to reach the pinnacle of achievement with major awards in recognition for its world class facilities and service excellence.
