Like Heli-Skiing operations in the winter, Heli-Biking opens up this vast back country world, and it is all yours, only the scenery and your mates in sight. The runs are long and diverse and if you play your cards right they leave you at charming country pubs to quench a well earned thirst. Unlike heli-skiiers, bikers need not stop at the snow line! Peak to valley is your new playground...
Half Day and Full Day trips are available and the prices are very reasonable compared to their winter counterparts!
