A bird's eye view of Whistler!

Check out the wild backcountry of North America’s most popular mountain destination. On this spectacularly scenic flight you will fly deep into Garibaldi Provincial Park, to the boundary layer between ancient glacial flows and volcanism.

Right at Squamish’s doorstep is the beginnings of the Garibaldi sub-range of mountains.  It’s here where mountains were forged, among fire and ice, as far back as 230 million years ago. 

Mount Garibaldi is the striking diamond shaped peak visible from almost anywhere in Squamish. But, perhaps, the most famous mountain of all in this region is Black Tusk – a black pyroclastic cinder cone of fossilized magma steeped in First Nation’s history and folklore. 

The Barrier, Sphinx glacier, Tabletop, and Opal Cone are more of the highlights on this tour of glaciers, extinct volcanoes, and unique geological formations you will not find in any other part of the world.

Once you’re in the air you’ll see why visitors have described this sightseeing flight experience as nothing less than extraordinary.  Don’t forget your camera!
