Travelling to our lodges
Option 1 | Ride the coach to the helipad. Fly from the helipad to your lodge
Ride in one of the private CMH coaches (from designated pick-up/drop-off locations). We also offer additional transport options if you’re looking for something more specialized – call us for details.
Option 2 | Drive yourself to the helipad. Fly from the helipad to your lodge
Drive yourself to the helipad using the google link listed under each area below. Make sure you’re on time, or better, early! If you’re late, extra charges will apply to fly you into the lodge.
Parking at the helipad is available at your own risk. CMH assumes no liability for vehicles parked at the helipad.
Heads up! A Parks Canada Pass may be required
Please note that a Parks Canada pass is required to park in Banff or drive to our helipads. If you’re self-driving and require a pass, you can avoid lineups at the park gate by buying a pass online.
